Left handed golf shirt
The polo shirt that helps lefties swing easier
Revolutionary ergonomic design gives left-handers the winning edge
Designed by Golf Pro Terry Sims in conjunction with Glenbrae Golf, a UK-based apparel company that boasts 25 years’ experience in the knitwear industry and is well established in many pro shops around the country, the left-handed shirt is designed specifically to match the motion of a left-handed swing.
Although looking little different to the eye than a normal shirt, the left-handed polo, which is made of high quality, double mercerized cotton, features 25% more fabric and a specific stretch panel on, and over the leading right shoulder. This aids the backswing by providing additional give and allowance for the shirt to shift with your turn, resulting in more freedom.
There is none of the unwanted tightness often found in standard shirts at the top of the backswing, while a deeper armhole also ensures that there is no restriction to free movement. However, the stretchable nature of the material ensures that the shirt remains well fitted at all times.
Sims is confident that all left-handers will notice the difference when they try one on. â€¨He said: I find that the litmus test is that if you wear the shirt and swing right-handed, it feels a little uncomfortable at the top of the backswing, but as soon as you adopt your normal left-handed swing, it not only feels like it fits properly, but that it also works with your swing, rather than against it. There’s neither too much or too little material, and it provides the support and the room to swing where it is needed most.â€
The Left-Handed Shirt is being worn in tournament conditions by Challenge Tour and European Tour professional Chris Gane (seen above testing out a pre-production sample of the shirt at the Glenbrae factory), who is ranked among the top 15 left-handers in the world. While another to hopefully benefit from its game-enhancing technology is US President Barack Obama (aka The First Golfer). He has been sent one of the very first samples to test out on the lawn at the White House, where the president has recently installed a practice area.
Priced at £39.95, and available in a choice of fashionable colours, the â€¨Left-Handed Polo Shirt was officially launched on August 13 2009, which also happens â€¨to be International Left-Handers Day, an annual event that celebrates the joys of all things left.
