It has been a very long time since I update this blog. As I write this I am unsure how my golf season will unfold. I have had foot & ankle problems for 20+ years and in the past year they got bad, real bad. Today my Dr. gave me two choices. Surgery or an updated & more aggressive custom orthopedic brace. I am opting for the brace and keeping surgery as a last resort. I've had custom orthotics for years but these new ones will go farther up the ankle and will restrict my ankle movement much more. I figure the loss of mobility can't be any worse than the pain that has hindered me for the past year. Still, I suspect it will impact my swing and I really do not know what to expect this spring. BUT I'M STILL GOLFING!
I originally titled this blog "My Golf Transformation" and honestly, it has not transformed. But maybe if I get some relief from the pain I can make some progress.
Last season I tried walking more and that may have contributed to problems with the ankle. I will start this season in a cart and see how things progress before walking another round. Thing is, I really liked walking and want to walk. Hopefully that is back in the cards before the end of this season.
