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!

    • Rather than focusing on the length of a missed putt, I'd like to offer a different point of view, while staying in the genre of the most demoralizing shot being a putt.  Having to take a third putt, THAT, is the most demoralizing shot in golf.  F 3-Putts! F them right in the A!!
    • I won't play this course again until next January, but I did have five birdies on the Stadium Course at PGA West....
    • With fourteen years experience working at a mid-level private club, and more recently, with a year and a half working at one of the most exclusive clubs in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the country, here's a few methods I can share to give you the best chance of playing there. 1) Most private clubs are closed on Mondays. A select few clubs stay entirely closed, even to their own membership. This gives the grounds crew an unhindered day to work on big maintenance tasks. A far more common practice of private clubs is, hosting non-member fundraising events on Mondays. It's a huge revenue driver for the club. Find out if this club of yours hosts any Monday charity. These days charity tournaments always have open spots. These events arent run by the club, so ask for the tournament director. Then find the charity selling spots for the least amount. 2) Have your pro call their pro. So long as you have a good relationship with the pro at the public course you normally play... If you dont, start building one. Whether working at a public course or a private club, you'd be hard-pressed to find a Head Pro or Directory of Golf that isn't a Class A PGA Professional. And any self-respecting Class A pro abides by an understood code of conduct. One of the precepts is to offer reciprocity by hosting players by way of reaching out with a special request. This may come with a guest fee, or just paying a cart fee or may be a full comp. 3) Reach out to the Membership Director under the pretense that you are a considering membership at their club as well as the others in the area. You'd like to set an appointment to take a tour of the club, which of course should include playing the course, to make sure it meets your needs, as a potential dues paying member. While this option may test the morals and/or values of some, here's some advice to put your mind at ease. So what if your current financial position can't afford you the means to join, who's to say that won't change down the road? Take the tour, play the round. One day you will be a member there, even if it's not the next day... I'll also say, don't abuse the process. Clubs talk amongst themselves, you don't want to be "blacklisted". Hope this helps! 
    • I don't think he can use pace of play as an argument. I bet Knox spent a few minutes surveying his shot.
    • In my bag I have some used, usable, but wouldn't use in a tournament, balls that I use when I practice chipping.  They're ones that have survived 36-54 holes of real play.  When I practice putting outdoors, at a course, I putt with the same type I use, but I use new ones (I'm not sure why I do this -- should I?).    Indoors, I don't have much in the way of the balls I use.  My indoor practice is with Bridgestone e6, whether it's full swing motion (off a mat, into a net) or putting (across a ruler).  I bought a ton of e6s in 2009 or so.
