This post is killing me! I developed this yesterday and my game was finally shaping up nicely ?.   Is it possible to keep playing ? I played with horrible shoulder tendinitis in 2003? 

Yes, but I wouldn't recommend it.  It could get a lot worse.

I had a golfer's elbow on my leading arm (left arm as I'm right-handed) and nothing seemed to help except rest, icing it, taking anti-inflammatory medication when needed.  The most important thing is to rest and exercise to build up muscles.

Thanks I played today and could not even notice it? Afterwards I noticed the pain when I stopped at a restraunt and opened the door...I was hoping to make it until the winter before taking time off

It's good you're not noticing it much and I know that makes it quite convincing sometimes that it is better, but not always is this the case. Even when you don't feel any pain, still always ice it down after a game. You should also tape it as much as possible to help support it and help prevent over extension. I work with soft tissue injuries and although very discouraging, these kinds of things can be helped, without having to quit the game. It is important to rest it and try to take a bit of time off during the treatment, but you don't have to be out for years. This is the treatment I always recommend...as i've used it and I talk to people all the time who have as well...and have healed from it. Look at the testimonials as well for elbow. Wishing you the best.Golf injuries

If you can, try icing it immediately after the round. Sometime inflammation can trigger increased pain. Icing will reduce the inflammation. I bring a ziplock bag right to the bar and have them fill it when I need to ice.

I agree.

A couple of months ago, I played a round with a friend who's a doctor, asked him about it, he said there's not much I can do with it, however it's kind of strange that he recommended to me that I should just keep playing with it if not too painful and it will get better. 

So I kept on playing with it, I stopped when it's really painful, and play again when it got better.  It's actually been getting better, I can play once a week now, just mild discomfort after the round, ice it a bit and it's ok for the next round.

Be careful :(  He might have recommend for you to keep playing to simply keep the blood flowing to the area...which is important for the healing.....but there are a lot of other ways to do this with no risk factor. Listen to your body and just be careful to not cause further damage.

    • I don’t see anything to be up in arms about. He was being honest about his prep on tour vs cup. I bet more of our players feel this way. I guess we shall see how it plays out next week. 
    • I read some of the stuff Brooks said, and he doesn't seem to be really gung ho.  So I can understand Azinger and others who are critical of these comments.  Most players would LOVE to play in even a single Ryder Cup, and are rabidly enthusiastic about the matches if selected. On the other hand, he's pretty honest, the formats and requirements ARE way different from any individual player's normal procedures.  The best players have fine-tuned their schedules, both on and off the course, so It HAS to be an adjustment to follow a schedule set by someone else.  And yes, having played a bunch of fourball match play, and at least some foursome match play (the Newport Cups are an example), they require a change in mental approach as compared to individual stroke play.  To me, if you're going to adjust successfully to this stuff, its critical to recognize the ways in which you'll need to adjust.  
    • So maybe she didn't have Covid after all. She had worms.
    • I my be mistaken but I think that is how de-workers work.  When I had dogs the de-wormer killed the worms and then they were “Evacuated” through the digestive tract.
    • That would be the Shady Pharmacy on the dark web.
