Down For the Count

It looks like I am out of commission for a while. I was playing in a Quota game yesterday, and my left foot started hurting me. By the time we made the turn, it REALLY started hurting. When I finished the 14th it was almost unbearable. I couldn't get any weight onto my front foot making it difficult to make a golf swing. I apologized to my partners and gracefully bowed out. I assumed that the neuroma on my left foot was acting up, but fortunately, that is not the case. Fortunately, I have a gigantic blister on the bottom of my left foot. I've walked many rounds, but I never got a blister let alone one this large. I will spare everyone and not post a picture. I am wondering if this is from walking, or if it's a sign that my weight is too much towards my toes when I'm swinging since the blister is beside the pad. Who knows, but I it doesn't look like I will be playing this week. 😥

It’s likely more to do with walking than your golf swing… no?

I honestly don't know. I walk all the time. I have yet to ride in a cart all year. It's odd that our of nowhere I would get a blister. There's nothing different about my socks or shoes. I find it equally unbelievable that swinging alone would cause this. My son even mowed the grass this week, so that isn't it.

Hope you are back to playing golf soon.  Duct tape!  just sayin'   (;-))

Thanks! Me too.

I'm afraid to ask what the duct tape is for. :scared:

It's almost certainly not the swing.  I spent a good 4-5 years with weight forward while working on other parts of the swing and I didn't get anything like you're describing.

More importantly, I hope you feel better and can return to action soon.  Will we still see you here to watch the UK British Open and the FedEx Cup playoffs with us?

I doubt that I do much other than watch golf this week to make sure this heals good. Well, that and the remnants of Berry moving in midweek. That’s a good thing though, because my lawn is thirsty. It will help remove the temptation to play too.

nah...  standing 8-count at worst.  :-D

Fortunately, it is doing much better today. I am continuing to rest it. Thankfully, the forecast for the next 3 days is not conducive to golf as the remnants of Berry move through our area. I swear things things follow me wherever I go!

Stay in that place down south!

You will never see me move to the state up north! 😝

I do miss my annual trips to Oakland Hills though.

    • I confess I'm not the smartest person on the planet. But I really don't see any reason not to get vaccinated.  1- Its been proven to help. We can argue details of how much until the cows come home, but only a complete moron would believe it doesn't help at all. 2 - It's in your body for about 5 hours. 3 - We've been giving vaccines in this country since this has been a country. There has never been even one with a proven long term side effects. (Short term is possible, see point 4) 4 - The short term effects have been generally mild. Generally folks who have had any side effects would have been a lot worse off with the Covid side effects.  5 - If you've ever attended school (public or private) in this country you've had literally dozens of vaccinations. Why draw the line at this one?  6 - Where I live it's free and pretty much available in any drugstore. It takes maybe 2 minutes to get it.  7 - Oh and by the way, it may save your life.  8 - It's also likely to save the lives of several people you either do or do not know, depending on your R number.  9 - Even religious leaders are telling their congregations to get vaccinated.  Of all the things you want to fight against. Why this? Quit wasting all of your brain power thinking up goofy-ass reasons not to get vaccinated. Spend that brain power on other stuff. 
    • Sell them both (if they both have value) that way when you buy a new driver you can make that TS4 your back-up. You know its going to happen sooner than later. If you like the Helium shaft keep it and just sell the head. 
    • FFS. You think scientists are all huddled in some town in North Dakota hiding evidence from the world. We have plenty of clues about the efficacy of the vaccines. And let’s face it, you wouldn’t believe this top secret study if it didn’t fit your narrative anyway.
    • Went with Tiger. In grand scheme of things would be the memorable. Now who are these 'Raiders' tho?? 😜
    • My 3 personal favorite arguments against being vaccinated are:   1 - (I saw this one just the other day) "I don't put anything in my body until I understand all of the long term effects." .... Takes a huge sip of Diet Coke.  2 - "I'm not getting vaccinated because I don't want to be told what to do." ... Okay, so you don't stop at red lights?  3 - "I think the government is using this whole thing as an excuse to plant a transmitter inside me. ... Oh shit, I gotta go charge my phone."
