Righty with fast left hand


Hi Folks,been awhile since posting so I'm not sure if this has been covered before, but after playing drums off and on for over 40 years as a right handed player,my left hand is far superior to my right hand.I do not play open-handed,nor have I payed particular attention to developing my left hand over my right hand.When I break out the practice pad and metronome,my left hand is so much more agile ,smooth and fast compared to my right hand that it confuses me.Have I been doing something that unknowingly enhances my left hand?I constantly check my grip,work on rudiments like crazy,but ol'lefty just keeps on getting faster than my right.I'm not saying that my right hand is SLOW,just that the left is superior.whatever suggestions you all have would be appreciated.
