Dumb Injuries

I've been mostly lucky with injuries, but for whatever reason I've been pretty banged up the last year or two. I've had recurring shin splints and plantar fasciitis for a few years, though rarely at the same time and at the moment they both actually feel okay. 

Last October I did some sort of damage to my right shoulder while lifting. It was pretty sore for months - even sleeping on my right side was uncomfortable - but now I only ever really feel it when stretching pre-round. 

I'm also pretty sure I dislocated the last knuckle on my left pinkie last November playing basketball - the constant pain went away a while ago, but it's still visibly dislocated and I can't put much force on it without it hurting.

My right ankle is also just permanently ruined.

Everything else is great though!

So what you're saying is you have no concussions...

Based on your injuries I'm going to lower your 1.5 index to scratch. 😁

Details man..

I've never broken it, as far as I know, but I've just rolled it a ton. Sprained it pretty bad a few  times, and it probably never healed quite right. It's pretty much constantly sore. 

The worst thing is that left ankle one isn't great either. Last summer I was having pretty bad pain in the right one, so I bought a brace for it, wore that pretty consistently for a few weeks, and then the left one turned into the sore one, so I switched ankles.

So, I'm looking at a total of 2 months of no golf because of a dumbass injury. 

Haha, turns out it's going to be more like 4 months in total... I can putt again, and I can probably start chipping soon. Full swings are a while away still. I've lost quite a bit of grip strength in my left hand, where the injury was. It's coming back, and should be back to normal eventually. But it's actually pretty amazing how weak it is compared to my right hand.

Bottom line: be really careful when using knives!

Crushed big toe after getting it run over by a forklift.

90% tear of my bicep tendon loading a mattress into the back of a pick up.

... better than getting a DRE by a forklift.  (Okay, I'll be serious the remainder of the day maybe)

Lol. I’ve had a few injuries in my time but that one hurt the most.

Once during our associate club's once a month tournament, I made a violent but completely out of sync swing, that injured my left lats and left me unable to keep playing that day (except for chipping and putting, which I did after withdrawing, just to stay around), and for the next month or so.

That was a stupid move! I don't know what prompted it, but it did hurt.

I pulled/tweaked some soft tissue (muscle/tendon/ligament, who knows) somewhere in my right shoulder/back area mixing a 12-pound batch of sausage by hand because I was too lazy to use and clean my mechanical mixer. Luckily got my practice in before I did this. Hopefully some advil and a good night's sleep and it will go away.

Nothing worse than a sausage injury.

Got the okay to golf today from the doctor! So it was just over 12 weeks from my surgery, and 3 and a half months from the initial injury. Be careful with cutting avocados!

    • Simply the best! Muirfields
    • Thanks guys, yeah that is definitely something to consider if I go down that route about the pairing and tags for sure @Missouri Swede.
    • Yes, you can manually tag the putts with the iPhone app, the Apple Watch app, or on their Link belt device. (I don’t have the link—I use either the watch or iPhone.) In fact, it’s pretty common for me to adjust the # of putts as I finish a hole, since I often have to add on the tap in putts—I don’t have the patience to let it register a tap in. You do have to pair the putter sensor with the app. If you don’t, the system won’t work at all (just the way they designed the system, I guess). Found this out the hard way: my putter sensor died, and I tried to re-pair it, unsuccessfully. No big deal, I thought. Except next time I went to play (replacement not yet arrived), it wouldn’t let me start the round: “need to pair your putter.”  Next time the putter sensor died, I knew better: ordered replacement, but didn’t un-pair the dead sensor.  Arccos thought I was chipping in every hole, no putts recorded.  I just added the putts manually as I went. So for you, pair the putter sensor at home (a onetime thing), put it away in your desk or wherever—don’t throw it away, because you’ll probably need it sometime in the future. Then add all putts manually, as I did when my sensor died. Here are what the iPhone app and Apple Watch app screens look like (don’t know what Android looks like—I get the impression it’s set up better for Apple): [Yes, I’m on my third sensor now.  First one lasted about 5 months IIRC. Second one only lasted 23 rounds.  Both replaced free under warranty — forget if it’s 1 or 2 years. But I’m a little concerned they both died so quickly.]  
    • Another cold day where it didn't get above 50 during the round. Played the outside (Hills at Community) 45-46-91. 4 pars offset by 4 doubles and a triple, the rest being bogeys. Only two 7s on the card which is good by me, just can't get back into the 80s. Iron play was as good as yesterday, if not better. Driver was keeping the ball in play which helps too. Just some poor 3 wood shots that really hurt me, one being a full top that went 5 yards in front of me. Glad that Ohio weather hasn't shut me down all the way yet. This also marked my 60th round played at my home courses for the year. I've probably played 80 total though because my courses were closed for the first 2 months of Covid.
