Down For the Count

CarlSpackler

986 views

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.
