Am 49 years old, played golf off and on since I was 17. Never knew how to properly hold a club or really how to hit a golf ball. It was baseball grip and whack away. Started back playing about 11 months ago and decided to try to do it right. Read that my old grip could cause shoulder, elbow, and wrist problems so I started getting the grip out of my palms and hitting down on the ball. Well after about ten rounds got a pain in my elbow and it has lasted for two months.
Tried ice, Advil and a topical cream a member here suggested, nothing helped. Broke down saw a doctor he said it was tennis elbow. Got a steroid shot in the elbow ( hurt like hell ) going to see a PT, got a cushion type elbow brace and prescription for anti-inflamatory.
Also told no golf for a week ( hurt more than the shot ) Anyone else been through this ? any hope of it ever really going away ?
