As you see... most (if not all) of the figures representing the golden section show the larger segment on the left. And when you say
"short to long equals long to whole", this is simply the result of a phrase where the subject is actually the "long", something like
"the long is 'in between' the whole and the rest".
Moreover you could as well say
"whole to long equals long to short" (and I would prefer this latter phrasing as more corresponding to the definition:
"A straight line is said to have been cut in extreme and mean ratio when, as the whole line is to the greater segment, so is the greater to the lesser"
[taken from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio - I guess this is from Euclid's "elements"]
