Broke my ankle messing around with a soccer ball and the grandson's in Texas.  The "snap" was audible and as I was going to the ground, I thought "Oh no ... it is March and golf season in the Mitten is starting.

When was this?

I threw my back out picking up a baby food jar off the floor when my triplets were babies.

Laid up for a week and a half.

Last February, at a student/faculty soccer game, I dislocated my knee and sprained my ankle somethin' fierce.

Both kept me from playing golf for a couple of months.

March 10, 2009.  A non-displaced fracture of the tibia.  It occurred the evening prior to our departure back to the Mitten.  I slept with my shoe on.  The next morning it was a slow walk through the airport, carrying my golf bag and suitcase.  Saw a doctor upon my return and she put me in a walking air cast.  As soon as the snow cleared, I started practicing chipping and putting wearing the cast.  I played my first round on April 4 (with the air cast in the golf cart, just in case).

May 2006, on our final morning in Ireland before flying home.  Staying in a wee town called Doolin, I wanted to get out for some photos.  Its a charming little place, but cars and trucks park on the main street, and I wanted to get some shots before they started obscuring the view.  In my haste to walk from our hotel to get the photos, I missed a step and fell.  Ended up with a slightly twisted ankle and a relly painful wrist.  But I got some photos and went back to the room.

By the time I got back I was hurting, so Mary Anne drive into the nearest town with a chemist, and came back with an ace bandage, chemical ice packs, and ibuprofin with codeine.  That got us to the airport and home, where I went to urgent care and was diagnosed with a broken wrist.  It was two weeks before I could get surgery (another long story), and 12 more weeks of prime summer golf season lost before I could swing a club.

Moral of the story, watch where you're walking.

Two years ago I accidentally broke a beer bottle in my hand and it cut about a 3/4" gash in the base of my right thumb. Did some permanent nerve damage and I've lost some range of movement in extension, but fortunately did not do enough damage to require surgery. I was out of work for four weeks and out of golf for six.

Lets see, where to start:

Number of years back, take a mighty swing, and froze. Pinched a nerve in the neck. I couldn't move for I can't remember how long.

Prepping ribs for the bbq. Holding them in my hand and slicing through the membrane on the back of the ribs, faster, and faster, and wait, where's all this blood coming from. Sliced from the tip of my thumb down to the heel of the hand. That stopped golf for a while.

Lastly, I won't go into specifics on how it happened, lets just say I fell. Showed up the next morning for golf. Looked like I had gone 10 rounds with a pro boxer. 2 black eyes, butterfly bandages all over my forehead and chin. But I played.

No way in hell are you getting off that easy. We need the details. This sound like it’s going to be good. Possibly post of the pandemic????

Tripped over your dog?

    • I have a “low” launch angle too, and my driver is 9.5°. If you don’t mind my asking what shaft do you have in your driver? You may not need a 16° Driver, it could be the shaft has too high of a flex point. But I’ve heard of higher lofted drivers though they can be hard to come by these days.
    • This season I was consistently shooting in the high 80s. Played some of my best golf and I am really happy with how straight I am hitting the ball right now. The ONE thing I would change in my game is simply the height of my drives.    I hit about a hundred balls today on trackman and with the driver I am getting average clubhead speed of 120 mph, launch angle 7 degrees, 268 yds carry. It’s bugging the hell out of me to see these low bullet balls, and despite trying all this year to deliver more loft (I’ve had a few lessons trying to fix just this issue alone), I just can’t seem to do it.  I currently play a stiff shaft Taylormade R1 set to 12 degrees loft. I’m thinking about possibly experimenting with one of those super lofted (16 degree) drivers. Has anyone ever tried this, and if so did it actually make a difference? In advance I just want to also say, yes, I agree an equipment fix in this case is a bandaid for a larger problem. But I’m also just trying to have fun with my game and if buying a higher lofted driver helps this problem, I’m happy to take it for now.  
    • Day 129.  During the workday, went to the next door room to hit some 6-iron shots;  indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls. 
    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better.
