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
Anyone have some 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).
