Glad to hear you are doing well, chspeed, and I have one question:Where was the tear located on the subscapularis? (My tear was a 1/2" long full thickness tear of the supraspinatus cuff off the bone)
It's been about 5 weeks now since surgery to repair the full thickness tear in my RC, and I am about a week into PT. I am quickly getting ROM back, but still am a long way off of full recovery. I figure I will take my time this winter and rehab properly, as I don't intend to golf until next summer, about 6-7 months from now. Even then,  I will take it easy and only do what I can do, and not overdo it. The PT said RC shoulder surgeries are some of the toughest to rehab.
I just got out of surgery the 29th of Aug. I had a 1/2" of supraspinatus rc tarn off the bone repaired, and a couple bone spurs removed. It is still sore at night due to blood thinners I take for a heart condition, as the wounds continue to weep blood. Sounds a little bad but it is the norm for my situation. I am wondering whether I will be able to play golf this coming summer? I am 59 and have always been involved in sports.
A PT cannot heal a tear. There isn't any magic that will heal it. If you have a tear, PT can strengthen muscles in your shoulder that will support movement, but the tear will still be there. Many people, especially athletes, have small tears in the RC, and can get along without surgery. Usually, though, the tear will get worse, either by tearing more or arthritis setting in. I injured my suprasinatus RC (tear) about 10 years ago and golf finally made it bad enough to have...
 thanks for the info. i haven't tried rotating two gloves, but i do take the glove off for putting. I know a few people who do use gloves anymore.
In hot weather, it's a two edged sword. A glove helps with the grip, but perspiration ruins the glove.
Blackheath is a decent course for a reasonable price.
You can buy them bulk, used:http://www.ravengolfballs.com/shop/category/titleist-golf-balls/
I did play Eagle Eye, Hawk Hollow, both MSU courses, and Chemung Hills, Hunter's Ridge, Moose Ridge that might be your way a little?
Hi, I started this group because I didn't see any group pertaining to Michigan golf. I play in the northern suburbs of Detroit. My home course is Rammler, but enjoy Greystone, Twin Lakes, Stoney Creek, and others.
