Mechanics of a golf swing vs. mechanics of a hockey shot
I've heard that, ideally, a right handed person would golf right and shoot left for hockey.
I remember reading once that Canada has way more LH golfers,as a percentage, than the US, and it's thought that this is because many people that would ordinarily be RH golfers end up golfing LH as they are used to shooting LH in hockey.
According to that article, RH people would ideally shoot left in hockey and golf RH. This is because, in hockey, it is ideal for your dominant hand to be at the top of the stick, while in golf your dominant hand would ideally be the bottom hand on the grip of the golf club. As I understood the article, in the golf swing much of the power generated is from extending the bent inside arm (right arm for RH, left arm for LH golfers) thru the release of the golf swing. When shooting in hockey, power is generated by using the bottom hand as a fulcrum while the top hand applies force by pulling the stick towards the body.
Is this the case?
