Anyway, damn shame. So no golf for awhile. Just brutal.

Hopefully you will get back to golf in due time with a new perspective. Nothing to compare what you are going through, but I was playing goalie in a parents vs. student soccer match about 15 years ago and dove on a ball. I made the save, but my left shoulder popped. I could not raise my arm for a couple of months and then for another 3 or 4 months could barely raise it as it was so weak.

I never went to the doctor as I am leery of your type 🙂

Now playing the best golf of my life.  

Kind of reminds me when my dad, a smoker, made my sister and I take a drag on his unfiltered Marlboro's to show us how bad they were. I can see you saying "look son, let me show you how dangerous these bikes can be". My oldest did a lot of skateboarding and he would come home with awful looking bruises on his legs, thighs, back and hips. At 33 I am surprised he isn't in a wheel chair.

Well I hope I recover to play the best golf of my life too. All my injuries/illnesses occurred when I was much younger and invincible lol. Having this happen now has really been rough. I appreciate you responding and telling me you recovered well. My hopes are up!

Last night was humbling. The narcotics did a number on me regarding constipation. Just awful.  The pain that would arise in the central lower abdomen I believe was as bad as the muscle damage. It would come in waves with no warning. Finally around 2am the gates opened and out came something equivalent to a Willy Wonka scene if it was a horror film.

Couldn't move due the spasms just limiting me to a slight slither like a wounded snake. But the relief from the pressure was so wonderful I just laid there. Yes, there. This repeated itself another two times and by 4am it was too much. Hoping not to disturb my neighbors I got myself up with a couple of yells, screams really, and was upright.

Took a hot shower and removed the bedding. I’ve come to realize I may have damaged my right pelvis along with separating my right a/c joint as well. Held off for eating this far as the pain just isn’t worth it, yet. But I’m getting around with a walker and making progress to some degree. Will keep posting as I can. Off narcotics since Tuesday morning. Advil and an occasion muscle relaxant as well.

Can’t imagine how bad this is for you. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Well bad news guys. I’m back in the hospital and after having a CT/Abd done not only do I have moderately displaced rib fractures at 8-9-10...but I have a bowel perforation with abscess. So, pretty shocked but so glad I decided to come back in. I knew something was wrong....Anyway...I’ll update when I can but probably be away for awhile. Cheers.

At least you know now what is wrong and they can begin to fix it.

The bowel perforation can’t be new. You’ve been full of shit since you joined the site. 😉

Good luck, man. I've had DDD for 30 years. I had to give up golf for 15 of those years. With newer procedures, I am able to play again and enjoy the the game.

Finally..the JP drain came out today. CT this morning showed complete resolution of the bowel perforation/abscess. So glad to be off the liquid diet in time to enjoy Thanksgiving! I’ll take it easy but gonna enjoy some real food. Can’t swing a club of course with the back..but no spasms for several days. Outlook good!

I highly recommend a turkey dinner smoothie! Just put it all in a blender!

Glad you are feeling better!

    • isnt the idea that the club runs from the bottom of the index finger on an angle so that it's on the top of the palm by the pinky.  (sorry if that made no sense as im not sure of the correct terms).  it looks as though in that first picture that maybe youre gripping it completely in the fingers.
    • I was fortunate to grow up at the club with "no tee times" and it worked basically like @vonbonds described at his place. Where I was in San Diego and now in Vegas, you have to make tee times. I get the frustration of having to make times but the private club has changed in the last decade or so with more ClubCorp/TPC/Troon clubs and fewer equity options. The higher end (less members) should strive and maintain a "no tee time" policy but for most private clubs it's going to be tough because they have to accommodate more than 30 rounds a day. Not really sure the point of Rymer's tweet.
    • As a resident of Southern California, I am required to have an acting resume.  Paramount on it is when I sink a putt outside of 10', I act like I'm not surprised.  Not very convincingly though, but I've had very few chances to practice it. But... 8 strokes gained putting.  Granted, it's over 54 holes.  For contrast, my most recent round, I had 8.5 strokes lost putting (in my defense, I suck at putting and didn't warm up, and my practice leading into the round was primarily long game -- I still shot close to my handicap, in part thanks to only 0.51 strokes lost approach).  Even more amazing, my round before that was 0.23 strokes gained putting, so you never know with me (and those are small sample sizes). Still, super amazing of Marc Leishman. 
    • Day 19, January 27 2020.  Putting drill at home after work.  Aluminium ruler, real balls, over carpet.  Only missed two (one left one right).  Focused on setup, including hand position. 
    • There have been other holes pointed out. The first four that spring to mind: You've not defined "approach" You're not treating like situations alike. That's at the core of "equity." You're punishing a player because of the actions of the wind? Another careless player? You're not "playing the course as you found it" and accepting good and bad breaks that occur as a result. It's not an opinion. The spirit of the game is defined, and it means: act with integrity (including following the Rules) show consideration for others take care of the course That's it. That's the "spirit of the game." There's no "spirit of the rules." When people say things like that, it's usually - as is the case with you - what people "feel" like things should be. That's not how the Rules work. If the rock is large enough that a smaller player cannot move it, should every player in the field be precluded from moving it? No. That's a ridiculous position to take, if you understand the Rules. No, it's not. Go ahead and tell me which of the three bullet points it violates. The answer? None. You'd have a better case if you just pointed out that would be against the ACTUAL rules of golf. No, it doesn't. Your alternative is lousy. The OP's question has been answered. So, move on. This is not the place for you to learn about the Rules of Golf, the concept of equity, or otherwise for a huge discussion on "rules theory" or anything else. Someone had a rules question, it's been answered, and anything additional is both off-topic and muddies the waters.
