So 2.5 weeks ago I decided to try some thorough stretching exercises.  I did it for two days and everything seemed ok.  Shortly after I notice the faintest tenderness in my ribs. It was a 1/10, and only rarely did I even notice this.  Played golf and hit balls just fine.  Around day 3, I played 18 and on about 16 I noticed that it actually was tender.  By 18, the last two swings were limited because I was guarding against the tenderness.  I decided after to shut it down.  I thought it would be a few days and I’d get right back to it.  Over the next week, it got worse.  Getting out of bed or sneezing would be kind of painful.  Not the end of the world, but clearly not anything good.  I would wince visibly.   It stayed this way for another full week.   It’s been another full week, and it’s now finally down to a mild tenderness.  However, I know that it’s right on the edge, and any heavy lift will bring me back to square ones.   Still no golf after 16 days.   I’ve had 2 chipping/pitching sessions but even that is pushing it.  

Just hoping it goes away so I can start taking advantage of this decent weather.  It’s been ROUGH just watching these beautiful days waste by.  I know that the discomfort is getting better, but don’t know when it will be healed enough to actually swing full and play.   Curious if anyone else has dealt with this.

I dislocated a rib while doing a hard set with a medicine ball. Same as you, it took a few days for pain to set in. Chiropractor set it back into place. Thankfully it was not in season but it did take about 6 weeks for it to completely disappear and get back into 95% swings.

I had an intercostal muscle strain/tear last year & it took forever to heal, kept trying to play with it, felt like a had cracked ribs on my right side.  I'd play, then take 2 weeks off, play again & by the 4th hole it'd hurt already.  Finally just had to shut it down for 2-3 months...  Wish I knew what caused it.  Just takes forever to heal because barely any blood gets to that area.

I guess it depends on the nature of your injury how long it will take to recover (dont go to a doctor or anything).

Same here.  Dislocated it at gym and couldn't figure it out until I told my Chiro.  One push and he popped it back in but it was still tender and took a while for the muscles to fully heal.  If it hurts when you cough or sneeze that's a tell tale sigh.  You may want to get it checked out

Have a chiro set the rib back in place for you, then lay off the golf for a little bit while all the muscles heal up. I used to do jiu jitsu in my teens into my 20s and rib issues like this are common. It's not a huge deal but if you don't let the spot heal, it will keep being tender, hurting.. popping back out, etc.

Pulled a right rib cage muscle hitting balls once, that sucked.

Wrestling with a buddy one evening of a 3 day tournament once. I'm 5'8 175 he's 6'4 280. I swept his leg, got him off balance, and drove him to the ground. Unfortunately i didnt get out of his grasp quick enough. In one quick motion he rolled me and fell on top of me. Terrible strain of my right rib cage. I was barely able to swing the club the next day. I was popping Advil like they were candy. Final day of the tournament was the next day and I was in the lead group. Didn't play well due to the obvious limitation.

Where’s the good news.

“It hurt for two weeks and then went away forever.  I’ve never felt better and it was the best things that ever happened to me!”

That’s what I want to hear.  :)

To wrap things up, it took about 5-6 weeks before I could really start playing.  I had to limit my swings somewhat and be conscientious for about 2 more weeks, and then it fully healed.
