I have tried throwing lefty, but it didn't work out for me.

At a tournament yesterday (charity fundraiser doubles event), we had to throw three of the holes offhand. We didn't find out until the morning of the tournament. It was pretty funny watching people who have never even tried it before, attempt it for the first time. I saw one guy throw about fifty feet behind the tee. But he wasn't alone. Even though I've thrown offhand before, and even though I was doing pretty well with it before the tournament, throwing it cold off the tee was pretty difficult. After the round, I went and played a course offhand the whole round. Towards the end, I was driving nealry as far offhand as usual, but putting offhand still eludes me.

I'm ambidextrous in a lot of things, I haven't put in enough work throwing lefty to be great at it but I'll use it when a lefty spike hyzer is the best route or I'm in an awkward spot where a lefty shot has a better chance of getting out.

It's best to learn everything you do with both hands, disc golf too. Imagine waking up with no right hand and having to learn quickly how to wipe you're ass with your left...

I rely 100% on my right arm, however I'm still just as confident in my left arm shots when they are needed. Takes practice like anything else.

El Kabong does - ACEd both ways, in fact. Of course, he's never on the site ...

[QUOTE=JeremyKShort;1720944]One of my friends throws LHFH and RHBH. For some reason he can't get a LHBH going. This leaves him with the problem of only having left fading shots. QUOTE]

I have same problem, but I try training LHBH also

i write, eat, shoot pool and guns left handed.

i throw, bat and golf right handed.

i can kind of switch all those things around and some times i find myself eating right handed or putting lefty for fun.

I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous...

Wow, this really got me thinking. Wiping offhanded would be tough, and dangerous. Altho I am fairly ambidextrious. Most of that probably comes from juggling. I'm primarily a RHBH thrower, but sometimes throw RHFH, and can throw LHBH for drives and midranges. Left handed putts and forehand shots are still ridiculously hard.

Also, try brushing your teeth with your off hand. Nothing will make you feel retarded faster than that.

Phil told me the story a few weeks ago. His right arm got injured the day before worlds a number of years ago. He was already there, so he decided to play lefty. After some practice and 2 rounds, he was slugging them out to 400 and by the end of the week he MADE THE CUT into the finals.

Crazy.
