Top 5 Left-Handed PGA Golfers [Infographic]

top 5 left handed pga golfers

Left-handed golfers are quite rare on the PGA Tour.

Some claim young, natural left-handed golfers become right-handed players due to the shortage of available golf equipment.

While there is a long list of PGA professionals that are right-handed, the same cannot be said for southpaws.

The list of Majors’ winners on the PGA circuit that swing from the left is a short one.

With advances in golf technology, the future may be brighter for more top southpaws to emerge.

  1. Phil Mickelson
    “Lefty” has won 49 career PGA Tour events, including five major tournaments.
  2. Bubba Watson
    Watson has won two Masters Tournaments (2012, 2014). The left-hander has tallied seven other PGA event wins since turning pro in 2003.
  3. Mike Weir
    Weir won the 2003 Masters. It has been his only major win, but the southpaw has accumulated seven other PGA Tour victories.
  4. Steve Flesch
    A four-time PGA Tour tournament winner, Flesch has experienced a drought on the circuit in recent years. Despite his lack of tour wins, he remains one of the top lefties in golf.
  5. Greg Chalmers
    The Australian scored a big win in 2016 at the Barracuda Championship. It came after 386 PGA Tour events. So far, it has been his only tour win.
