Anyone have some advice?

4 posts in this topic

This might be the wrong forum but I was just wondering...  I recently injured my left middle finger in a way where the last knuckle is stuck in a flexed position.  The injury is labeled  a mallet finger, and to correct this injury i need to wear a splint or something to keep the finger straight so that the ruptured tendon can grow back.  Well instead of a splint I obtained this ring-like-thing which is a lot less bulky.  Anyway, it seems like I can still swing a golf club but my left middle finger just does not wrap around the club completely.  This might be some paranoid thinking but does anyone have any experience or know if I might develop a bad habit, or be unable to swing the club normally once the finger is healed? heh thanks

just don't think about it, splint or not, had the same thing on the other hand. I thought the splint was useless, my finger is fine. Did the injury happen from jamming your finger ? Not a doctor, nor is this medical advice.

Injured my thumb a few years ago right before a buddy trip to Scotland. Needed surgery to repair but was looking for a way to delay until after the trip. Had a special splint made at an Athletico where the PT let me mold the hand to a correct grip. The splint had allowed me to play  while protecting the thumb from further injury and hold the club with a grip that would not create too many bad habits. I'm sure it would not have be legal for competition, and it did make it very hard to hinge properly, but I was able to enjoy the trip. And when I got the thumb repaired, I had no bad habits (there was a long period of no play after surgery so YMMV).

    • 14- way Carry Bags?
      I had an ogio 14 way carry bag and hated it after one frustrating round I gave it away.

      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.
