Playing Through Pain
Posted 14 January 2006 - 10:06 AM
My two worst, playing with some torn cartilage and ligaments bc the docs couldnt figure out what was going on and thought it was just normal pain but it was excruciating, actually played some solid golf bc i had to hit everything at like 75% so i didnt miss a fairway or a green, just a bunch of nice little pitched irons from everywhere.
Played with two broken feet, they hurt really badly after falling on the stairs but i assumed they were just bruised, so after a week i went out and tried to play but i absolutely just couldnt, turns out that after another set of 25 x rays or so the doc finally saw that i had a spider web crack in each heel and had chipped off pieces from the backs of each of my heels. so it kinda sucked had to take off golf for a whiiile.

After a little experimentation on the range I figured out that I could swing a club and hit the ball solidly with out pain and flinching by making a normal overlapping grip while holding my left thumb off the shaft and outside of my right hand. I had to swing a little slower to avoid losing control of the club and I had to take more club because I was not hitting the ball my normal distances.
The best part! I still shot a 78 and I still beat my buddy to his dismay!

Oh, and anyone who works out on a regular basis, if you do a lot of failure reps the day before, it's pretty tough to get those muscles comfortable moving especially since the golf swing puts strain on almost every muscle in your upper body (pecs are killers!!)
