Left or Right Handed?

Hi, my younger boy is almost 3, and I plan to take him along to play some golf with his older brother soon. He’s naturally right handed as far as I can tell (holds utensils and crayons with right hand), but every time he swings a toy club or bat he swings left handed. His grip is also correct for left handed swings. I tried having him swing right handed and it just looks unnatural. Should I get him left handed clubs or force him to switch to right? Thanks

    My son is right handed when it comes to some things like writing and throw or catching a baseball, but a lot of other things he does left handed like golf and hitting a baseball. I never tried to force him to do anything either way, I just let him do what was comfortable for him. He’s 13 now and is developing into a good hitter in both sports. We actually toyed with him hitting righty during last baseball season and he did well enough to hit righty during games. I say, let him develop whichever way he is most comfortable.
