  1. Update: Since surgery in mid October, I don’t feel pain in operated elbow, when swimming or swinging lightly. It still feels a bit fresh on touch where tendon was operated, doctor said it may take 6 month or longer to go away. Going for my right elbow operation, hopefully by end of the month. I did hit a lot from mats and this would be first thing I’d be careful about when return to golfing. Also switching to graphite shafts and game improving irons. Not straightening elbow is great tip, thanks!
  2. Hoping that my story will stop guys from hurting themselves. Started playing 4 years back at 46yo. After second year developed right GE (golf elbow) then left TE(tennis elbow). I’m convinced that was from not warming up and swinging too hard with arms. Stopped playing for 4 month, didn’t help. 2 cortisone shots on each elbow helped to play for another year. In April, pain stopped me from playing completely. Did PRP on right GE, made it much worse. Massages, CT cream, PT, done all of that, didn’t help. Couple days back, did surgery on left TE with PRP. Will see how it goes. Planning to do surgery on right GE in 8-10 weeks. Lessons learned - Warm up, stupid! Pay attention to proper technique! No cortisone shots, they only masks problems.
  3. Thanks SRM1, These must be awesome courses and quite pricey!
  4. Sorry for double post. Going to MB vacation from NY second week of April with 12yo son, both shooting 90s. Usually, we play courses in MB area for under $60(kid plays free), except we can’t miss MBN Kings North, we just love it too much. Could someone please share info for unexpensive courses simular in nature to Pinehurst? Myrtle Beach area or south NC? Thank you for your suggestions! END winter NOW!
  5. Going to play MB second week of April with my 12yo son and thinking to take a chance to see practice round at Masters. I searched for it and it’s either “it’s easy to get ticket from scalpers” or “you may get arrested for trying to buy ticket”. Anybody with recent experience, please share safe way to get Monday or Tuesday badges under $100 and without risking to go to jail? If GA locals interested in tennis US Open, we’re in NYC and will get you hook up to visit Flashing Medows in return. END winter NOW!
  6. Trying to find doctor for golf elbow in Mid - Manhattan. My friend got charged $3K for tests on first visit by doctor he googled. Can you recommend doctors you used? Thanks
  7. Can’t find a playing partner for my son, he’s 10. He’s bored to play with me all the time. Anyone close to Brooklyn have child 8-12 yo that interested to share play time? We usually play at Dyker or Marine park, using driving range once a week at Flatbush. Would go to close LI. Even at Golf academy at Dyker it’s tough to find young kid to play the course. Thanks
