Right Forearm Pain


Recommended Posts

Anyone got any idea why my right forearm hurts or what I can do to strengthen them?

It's probably just a pulled muscle from being cooped up all winter then swingin' for the fences today since it's the first round of the year but IDK

Oh btw, I'm a righty.

It sounds like a strain, but in no way am I a doctor of course. If the pain persists I'd see an actual doctor... and in the meantime would just ice it the first 24-48 hours, then soft use heat.

So Lets say your hold your hand towards your chest, and you push your hand forward your arm begins to hurt? Its it just stiff or is there actually significant pain? Did youdo any exercising?

No it's definitely not elbow joint - it's the top of my forearm

I am no doctor, but I have had severe tennis elbow and underwent surgery.  Tennis elbow is not only felt in the elbow.  My elbow is now great but I have pain in the top of my forearm.  Try ice and rest and DON'T let get worse, cause 5 months without swinging a club sucked!

Positive. I felt a "pinch" while hitting my 3w.

It seems to have gone away, but I haven't put it through anything strenuous since.

Same thing happend to me after playing 9 yesterday...

My nephew said it's from not keeping my right arm straight during the follow through, after the ball strike...

My cousin is a Pro P/T and she said the same as Kieran123... Ice, heat, ice, heat...

Coinsidentally... If you want to see a physical therapist and reproduce the strain... hold a five pound weight in your right hand and keep your arm bent for ten minutes... Replicate the strain every time, guaranteed!

So, lighten up on your right hand grip... keep the forearm straight and don't break your wrist at the end of your swing...

Good luck with that....

I know this is an old post... but this fits my pain exactly.  So what does it mean?  I am lefty... I'm sure that matters... It always does!!!  Oddly there is no pain when I am playing/swinging my clubs.

FWIW, it went away after some stretching and icing.

I'm guessing it was a pinched nerve or maybe a slight muscle pull.

Either way, if it doesn't go away after some "RICE" I'd go get it checked out.

Just happened to me! My first 18 Holes in a year. My big muscle underarm is completely bruised. The skin is red on the outside and gets darker by the day, day 2 1/2 now.

Pain only when I bend my wrist back or, stretch my arm straight, No Elbow!

Welcome to TheSandTrap, @Juergen Straub.  I'm afraid you won't get much response here, this thread is about 8 years old, but I hope you'll continue to contribute wherever you see something that interests you.

    • I'm getting a little leery of these pros where it looks like they downed three bottles of 5 hour energy before the record button is tapped.
    • I didn’t watch the video, but the thumbnail screenshot has him in position to hit a big block with that right elbow stuck behind him.
    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.    
    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉
