  1. I never knew that about Phil. I’m the opposite.

    I’m naturally left handed with swinging bats/clubs/etc. in sports, but I learned how to play golf right handed because that’s all the clubs I had to practice on since my Dad was right handed.

    It did help me with becoming a decent switch hitter in baseball, so that’s nice.

    By the time I was old enough and able to afford a nice set of my own, the right handed play style was ingrained in my muscle memory.

    I still can’t putt worth a damn right handed though.
