What you should consider when buying left-handed golf clubs

When purchasing left-handed golf cards, this is not a daunting task anymore.The abundance of left-handed golfers now means that an influx of left-handed clubs has come into stores over the last decade. Although left-handed clubs are not found in as great quantity as right-handed ones, it is still easy to purchase a set of left-handed woods or irons that you desire.

What type of golf clubs would you like?

The first thing to do is consider what exactly you are looking for. Are you after a brand new set or a second-hand set? Are you after blade irons or cavity irons? Which brand do you like? A great way to decide what you would like is by speaking to another golfer (right or left-hander), and ask about their clubs and the difference in the shafts, head, grips, etc of the clubs. This is similar to buying a tailored suit - do you want it single or double-breasted? How long do you want it? Do you want one, two, or three buttons? You need to have an idea of what you want before you buy clubs.

Ask for advice

If you are buying a set of left-handed golf clubs, it is best to get the advice of someone from your local golf store or your local professional. These people will know what a player of your ability will need, and what is suited for your game. If you are getting lessons, your coach would be even better suited to know which clubs you should use. There is a lot of good advice out there, whether it be for a set of cheap irons or an expensive left-hander putter - so don't be scared to ask for it.

The price of left handed-clubs

The price of left-handed clubs can vary from store to store but should be similar to right-handed clubs. As there is only a smaller number of left-handed clubs available, you may have to look a bit harder to find the clubs that you want. When buying a new set, better clubs will generally come only with the 3-iron through to the pitching wedge. You will need to buy the putter, sand wedge, gap wedge/lob wedge, and woods separately. It is advised to buy the irons first, as the rest of the golfing accessories can be purchased individually.
