In contrast to the human population where 10-12% of people are left-handed, only 4% of top golf players are lefties.

This is because, in golf, performance is not directly dependent on the opponent. The handedness in a group is a result of the degree in which cooperation and competition occurs. Lefties excel in sports like baseball, when two opponents face each other.
