  1. Almost certainly not the ECU then. Best of luck, I know how frustrating the wait can be!
  2. If the doctors are having a tough time figuring this out it may be tough for any of us to help you too much. However, I had the same type pain in the same area, for two years as well. Eventually they figured out it was the ECU. Have they ruled that out? The type of pain, when you have it, and where it is all consistent with that. They could not really see the problem and even "guessed" incorrectly after my MRI. They eventually did a surgery, with a scope fist to actually verify the problem. I was pretty convinced myself that it was the ECU and the scope finally verified the problem the day of the surgery. The surgery did mostly fix the problem for me and I can play again, but I still always have some pain and don't play much anymore myself. Was there a one time event in which you did something that resulted in the wrist having the extreme pain?

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    Just my second full round of the year, but I was very happy with an 88.

    TFCC Tear

    I am sorry to hear this Jerry. My main issue was actually the ECU tear which is a fairly invasive surgery. They found the TFCC was torn as well while they were operating and they fixed that as well. It is a much less invasive procedure, so that is the good news. Best wishes with everything.

    My Swing (cipher)

    I will still play some here and there, especially considering I need to for the company at times. But I am finished with the early morning stuff and with working on things. I know my limitations at this point. If I play it will be for fun moving forward, basically the way golf used to be for me before 2011. I may get out to Sand Valley this year or next with my Dad and that would be great fun.

    My Swing (cipher)

    I did not work on anything with the swing. Life changes, you move on. I don't have the desire to practice and play much anymore after everything that has happened and with the place I am at in life. I've only played golf a couple times this year. I gave it a good five years of commitment to improving the game, and learned so much along the way. This thread was a lot of fun, thanks to all who weighed in over the years.

    Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    I am glad I decided not to make any early judgement about this movie. After a second viewing of it I really am starting to like it. Not my favorite by any means but it is a much needed shift in the films for sure. The most important explanation that we could have been given in the film, we were given imo. Light rises to meet the darkness and darkness to meet the light. Yeah that is correct, I believe just a powerful dark side force user. Some think he is the Prime Jedi but I do not think so myself.

    What are you listening to?

    From my favorite songwriter. Only biggest indie fans would really know who this guy is. I love the transition at about 2:10.

    My Swing (cipher)

    This should be an interesting year coming up. I will try and work on the swing a bit over the winter if I can find the time. I definitely want to give it one more solid effort on correcting the driver swing as soon a spring hits. I also picked up a Ping G driver which seems so much more forgiving(I have only hit it once at the range though) than my SLDR TP was. I am not sure what I was thinking with that one other than it was a cheap driver to buy when getting back into playing again after the injury.

    Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    In original post with the article that Erik linked(which included the statement I was referencing and quoted a couple times which was "I’ve read several things that make a very good case for the Empire as the good guys") the author of the actual article states: I have an issue with the first disclaimer or whatever you want to call it as far at the article remaining relative. There are the films, there is Expanded Universe, however there is still official canon outside the films. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Wookieepedia:Canon_policy So as I best understand this would include the shows Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Star Wars Rebels and the StarWars.com databank. I have not spent much time in the databank but have watched much of the shows with my kids. The information from these official canon sources a is plenty to write a lengthy response to the original article and the others if one wanted. However it really is not fair to the original article as he did not have that information back in 2002 when the article was written. If you want to keep the conversation as it seems you guys do to just the movies, then it is just a useless back and forth conversation and I agree there is no point. I am just pointing out in this post that official canon includes sources that now shed a lot more light on the Empire as also not being the good guys so to speak. If someone wants to consider looking at those sources that is great. I would be happy over the next couple weeks to do a write up citing this canon(you don't have to be an expert, which I am not either, you just have to look it up), but I don't really want to be accused of taking this all too seriously again. I just thought it was a fun and lighthearted philosophical discussion. Maybe not as I did not have the time yesterday or today when my work starts to provide complete responses at this time.

    That wasn't your statement. So does a naval ship they are military personnel. Sure. I can refrain, that is fine with me.
