I am 21yrs old and my doctor last year told me I have tendinitis in my left wrist. It acted up, I took some medicine and it was ok through the off season and up to 2 days ago... It started acting up again... I'm thinking its more than tendinitis or I need a shot of Cortizone.

Only hurts when I bend my wrist back, but doesn't hurt when I bend it forward... It sucks...

Ahh and the pain continues.

So you don't think I haven't read anything, I would like to say that I'm sorry to everyone that's taking a leave from golf right now and I hope you get back to it soon.

Where was I?

Ahh, yes. The pain continues.

I made a couple trips down to the course to chip and putt a bit because it wasn't a problem at all if i just took my pointer finger on my left hand off of the club when I grip it. There should be very little pressure in the middle of the grip anyways. So i was chipping a little bit and I decided to try and take some half swings. Those felt great. Then 3/4 swings. Omg I haven't lost anything!

Then full swings.

Still great! Nothing was going wrong and I was hitting my driver about 230 or so. I was loving every second of it.

Until disaster.

Took a normal swing just like any other that I had executed that day. Except the only thing that was executed this time was my knee.

Usually when I swing, my left foot has a tendency to slip and turn towards my target right before impact because of all the force that I'm using in my golf swing. It turns out that this time my foot didn't turn for some reason, but my knee keep going. Dislocated my knee for a second, and it popped back in I think. Hurt like a sonnuva....cart girl....

I'm out from golf for ANOTHER 3-4 weeks. On crutches. Living on a golf course. With nothing to do during the day but text my girlfriend and sit watching the golf channel waiting for thursday to come, mouth agape, when some golf actually comes on.

IIIIIIIII hates injuries.....

Wow Phil, you are in tough shape lately! Mine isn't that bad... Tore my MCL this winter playing hockey and am on the tail end of recover from that. Just hyper-extended my left wrist and got tendonitis over spring break. Am back to golf now and no pain, except my knee feels weak. It really sucks, because my swing is absolute garbage right now and I can hardly make clean contact with the ball. I'm still trying to figure out if it has anything to do with the injuries... I think it might be partly because of the knee. It's hard to put my weight back to me left leg when my knee feels weak. Here's to a quick recovery and a good summer!

Phil, you are a walking, golfing disaster!

I've been lucky that the minor injuries I've had came at a time when I couldn't play, anyway. Talking about cut fingers and such.

Get well soon, and permanently, Phil.

I hope you get back soon rhpm and everyone else. I am nursing a sore foot at the moment and not able to to play much and need to ice the bottom of my left foot after playing. I think it is related to a swing change. The good news is that I am hitting it further, but I hope this is going to "wear in" soon.

Thanks guys. For now my goal is to just sit at home and hope that a new episode of spongebob comes on soon (gotta love being a kid) before I die of boredom. I'll probably start working out my upper body for a while while I'm out of commision. Stitches should be out either today or tomorrow.

I was making my breakfast of champions this morning including 3 eggs, 14 strips of bacon, and a bagel.

Are you trying to add CHEST PAINS to your list of ailments? Holy cow that's a lot of bacon!

i had cancer 2 years ago, chemo kept me from playing for about 6 months.

I think this takes the cake. Hope you have beaten your cancer.

hey, you still get to forego responsibility for another 6 or 7 years, and are not expected to do anything but go to school, and make a little money on the side. then you get to play golf as much as you want(as soon as you heal), so quit complaining! ;)

    • I enjoy posting these and going back through the thread and reading my old thoughts on my round. Also happy I was able to play today even though the temperature was around 42 degrees. The theme of my round was greens. More specifically missed greens. Front wasn’t awful. Hit 5 greens. Hit a SW to tap in range at 9 for a birdie and played the front at +3. I did miss at the 3rd with a gap wedge. Missed at 6 with a 9 iron. Back 9 was a mess. I hit one green. My really bad misses were at 10 with a gap wedge, 12 with a U wedge, 14 and 16 both with SW in hand and to compete the side I dunked a 9 iron in the drink at 18. All I had to do was par the 18th to stay under 80. And I made double for 81. Actually drove the ball well. Funny I shot 2 under a few weeks ago while hitting 3 fairways all day. Today I hit 7 fairways and couldn’t break 80. Hope this isn’t my last round for the year. Like to end on a better day.
    • I had a couple of rounds with one 6. Generally a three-putt by on par 5...even my best round was even par (everything was “on” that day), I had one birdie, one bogey on a par 5, with 16 pars the No-Sixes round is my white whale
    • How close have you gotten? A six on the 18th hole or something?
    • Three years now and still haven’t gotten it yet. One day....
    • Bradley Hughes was just on Swing Expedition, and he used the Down Under Board on the show. I don't entirely agree with the way he says to use it, particularly the trail foot. It doesn't do what he said it did in the golf swing, but "feel" ain't real.
