Broken Arm

Recommended Posts

I broke my right arm (I'm left handed) should I try to play one handed? Any one handed drills I should do? Or just rest up till it heals? Just curious what some of the teachers feel about this situation?

That sounds like a REALLY good way to screw up your swing.  It's not that long, I'd give it a rest for the 6 weeks or whatever until I healed.

Sorry to hear about the arm!

Gutted for you, I recently damaged ligaments in my wrist and had initially thought I'd broken it, and the thought of no golf was my first concern! I'd say the only thing to do is let it heal properly, and research the best way to recover the strength in it when the cast does come off.

You could spend the time working on lower body positions in your living room, and/or you could also spend the time practicing putting.

I used to practice putting with just my right hand all the time.

Yep, he could work on his shoulder and him incline, and keeping a steady head. By the time his arm heals he should be ready to really work on his backswing.
