  Very good information.I injured my hand last fall, buy over gripping the club with my left hand and playing 63 holes in 36 hours.Did not help to return home and not let it rest by holding a video game remote, or my cell phone for extended period of time. The only difference I have is most of my pain is either in my middle finger or on the muscle part of the palm by the pinky.I have used this opportunity to learn how to grip the club lighter with less pressure and not try...
I was diagnosed with bursitis in my left shoulder. I have done 2 rehabs and 1 cortisone shot. I have had an MRI and been told there is nothing to surgically repair. My doc told me not to carry my bag as the motion of sending my arm back through the loop can aggravate my shoulder. Last week I accidentally slept on the couch with my puppy. slept on my shoulder.  Been barking at me all week. I went and swung. It does not hurt to swing, it hurts to do everything else in...
I adapted my wife's medifast plan to something I could use. Eating 5 small, low cal, high protein meals a day with 1 portioned sized lean meat/greens meal.   I started on 1/1/14 and I am down 20 lbs. Cant even begin to explain how the difference feels. And I have cut out drinking. I limit myself to 1 beer or a glass or 2 of wine a week. Compared to my 2 beers a night.   And I began running 3 times a week on the treadmill, atleast a mile at a time.   I just might...
Had an MRI, no rip, no tearing. No surgery. Just really nasty inflammation. moderate lifting, stretching and I had been advised to stop carrying my bag on my back.   Might have to invest in a good cart bag and borrow my old mans push cart (he bought a sun mountian, but has yet to use it in 4 years!)
Had an MRI last friday. Follow up appt will be in 2 weeks.   Dr still maintains that there is no rotator cuff damage, since I have all the range and motion minus the pain. He thinks it is severe tendonitus! 
Thanks for advice. Sorry to hear of your pain, but hope your OP is the fix you need. I have an appt with my doctor this afternoon. This will be the 3rd one since sept. The shoulder is no longer as sore as it was. The pain has waned, but I know there is an issue there.   I just hope I have the time to fix it and recover by next april.
I am going to put this out there right at the beginning. I swing too hard.   Especially the longer the irons and woods get. The guy that gives me lessons has told me time and time again not to give “110%”. He has told me to swing about 85%.   I came from a background of Baseball and lacrosse, which you went all out. You gave it your all and never left anything out on that field. I never had a coach or teacher tell me to dial it back! I also have 25 years of...
I went to the doctor last year, he indicated I had tendonitis in my left shoulder. He did all the movements to check for rotor cuff issues and I had mobility. I got a cortisone shot on my shoulder in the back.  The pain went away, but there was still some clicking and popping and sluggishness to the shoulder. The Doctor attributed this to likely a small tear in the rotator cuff. He advised to take aleave or advil and continue my lifting and stretching routine (which was...
 My local golf Galaxy takes trades as well but I am probably getting only $5 for the 3 drivers, 1- 7 wood and 2 volkey wegdes (54 & 60) I no longer carry. I liked my 7 wood, but it was an old Bertha metal head, that I got for $100. But I can not use it out of the rough, which is where I seem to play out of quite often.My 4 Hybrid gives me 200 yards, so as much as I would like a 3, I dont know where it would fit. 3W-2305W 2154H 200 My game on my home course is basically to...
  The only reason I have hung on soo long with the 5H, is that once I put money into it, I cant afford to get anything else.Just this year I bought a used Callaway Driver with a Stiff shaft for $100, but I was unable to use it on the course. Not anywhere near what I was doing at the range (which caused me to buy it). Like I said I have a 4H (taylormade).I still think I am a little young and have too much power and distance to hit a 5 H, but All i think of is all the clubs...
