    Don't play hockey but I would shoot with my right hand lower on the stick. Golf I face right if viewing from behind the tee box.

    I shoot trap right handed but I'm left eye dominant.

    Now, here's the question for everyone. How do you unscrew a stuck lid on a jar?

    Which hand holds the lid, which holds the jar?
    Which hand applies the active torque vs. which hand steadies?

    No, you are correct.

    the NHL player on my block is a known left handed shooter, I’ll ask him if he’s out during my daily walk but it’s hot AF here so no one should be out

    I actually had this hockey stick debate with my boss a couple months back when we were discussing right/left handed-ness. I mentioned how hockey players are usually opposite their dominant hand and he was adamant that he was right handed at *everything* including hockey.

    So I explained that the little I played, I was a RH shot, with the stick on the right side of my body and blade curved to the left. He argued that I was a LH and he, who shot opposite me meaning the stick was on his left side and blade curved right, was RH.

    I explained that I was taught by an NCAA D1 coach, so I hoped the coach knew what he was talking about.

    It wasn't until he looked up a sporting goods store in the internet when he realized he was really a LH shot in hockey.

    A hit, a very palpable hit.

    And you’re shooting left handed. I’m the same at hockey and golf

    That seems opposite. When I place my left hand lower on the stick and place the blade on the ice, it curves to the right.

    My guess is it goes back to when curved sticks were first introduced, and they're named for the way the curve bends rather than what hand is used.

    If your left hand is low on the stick the shot is coming from your left hand side --> left handed or left shot.


    I'm right handed for most things but when I have one hand on the hockey stick, like poke check, it's the non-dominant hand (because I shoot hockey right handed).

    It seems odd that we would give it a name that's the opposite of common practice -- by definition one would think the majority position would be "righty"?

    But I get it -- it's the hand that guides the lever, not the pivot, as with baseball.
