Hello everyone

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all,
I'm new to the site, but not to golf... However, I've been out of practice for the past few years. Im 30 years old and started golfing when i was 4, got into a jr. golf team when i was 6, played 3-4 times a day until i was 10... thats when i dropped back to only playing 2-3 times a day as I had become quite the swimmer. I skipped out on playing golf for my hs because I was focused on my swim career. I was ranked 4th in the US in the 200m butterfly, so that took a bit of priority over golf. I still played, but I was down to once a week with a handicap of around 4. Fast forward a few years... I raced what would be my last competitive swim race at the Olympic trial qualifiers for the 2002 games. My shoulder basically imploded. Off to college, where I played a bit more golf, but my shoulder limited pretty much everything that I did. I had surgery 3 years ago which rebuilt the ball/socket, fixing my problem... Sorta. My left handed swing is pretty much over. I don't have, nor will I have the range of motion I once had.
Here I am 3 years later, trying to get back into the game I love.... Only this time, I'm swinging right handed. I still am extremely athletic, I do 2-3 ironman distance triathlons a year, I'm a competitive waterskier, and I just competed my last season of ski jumping (too old.) My swing is coming along very nicely considering I've only been out to the range 5 times in 2 weeks.
This forum will be a very valuable tool in my road to recovery, I look forward to lots of conversations with you all. I will be posting videos to the swing thread here in the next couple of days.

Thanks in advance
