Top 5 Left-Handed PGA Golfers [Infographic]
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.
- Phil Mickelson
“Lefty” has won 49 career PGA Tour events, including five major tournaments.
- 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.
- Mike Weir
Weir won the 2003 Masters. It has been his only major win, but the southpaw has accumulated seven other PGA Tour victories.
- 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.
- 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.
