Hockey is just whacked.

The comments on this page just further my point...

I played gold with my right handed friend, who bats right, throws right, and shoots a puck lefty. He currently can hit from either side of the plate, and can hit a golf ball over 200 yards from either side. He does hit the ball a lot from the right side tho.

Hockey may indeed have something to do with it. Alot of hockey players prefer to have their strong hand on the top of the stick, meaning that many of right-handed people end up shooting "left-handed" and vice versa. Once you're comfortable playing that way it might very easily carry over to other sports like golf, lacrosse and baseball.

I believe this theory also applies to Canadian golfers - subjectively speaking I went golfing in a foursome last week: 3 of us hit left, none of us were left-handed, all of us shot left in hockey.
