Mr. D, what surgeries did you have? I am rehabbing from rotator cuff surgery, and it is a difficult recovery process, but going well.
I played heavy stiff steel and went to regular graphite in my new irons. It took a period of time to adjust, to say the least, but I adjusted well to them and really like them. I like the lighter weight of them now and how much easier they are on an older body.
Best advice you can give to this golfer is "none". You don't know him, you aren't playing in a tournament, or for money. There really wasn't any reason to mention it, because nobody likes to be told what to do, or be embarrassed in front of others. Did it really matter that much to you that he was 4 inches in front of the tee markers? Also, if you are going to get that picky, you should putt out and not take gimmies.
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.
