Lefties lead Dickinson to Class A state tournament


The average number of left-handed golfers in the world range is somewhere between 10 to 15 percent.

This isn’t the case for the Dickinson High boys golf team.

Half of the Midgets’ six varsity golfers — senior Alex Turcotte, junior Carter Donnan and freshman Davis Donnan — are left-handed.

“There isn’t a lot of us,” Turcotte said. “It just funny how people are like ‘Oh, you have three lefties on your team. That’s weird.’ People laugh because it’s not normal.”
