I'm Back Baby...I'm Back!
« on: June 23, 2013, 11:07:54 PM »
Quoting Frank Costanza there, but 3 months after my op, I have returned with full intensity to the golf course!
Played 12 holes on Friday nite and rode in a cart to be safe - but I still have this nagging side lateral muscle strain on lifting/swinging my right leg into a car and or cart and then getting out. Hit the ball reasonably well.
This morning Sunday the 23rd, I walked a full 18 holes (6500 yard course), pushing my cart - found it was much better - walking is the best exercise (although I have not gone for a full swim yet - fear of rusting...)  ;D
For results - I have pretty much the same game back as I was very close to shooting my handicap for the full 18 - a few things to work on but loving every minute of it - will be back to my routine of playing 3 times per week over the next month
Nice to achieve that goal and be pain free in an activity that I love

Well done - that's a great achievement after 3 months.

I'm sure you'll enjoy every game of golf to come.

Awesome quote (99% Canadian, 1% American...). You even got the percentages right!

Wow, that is great packman.  I just played my first round since having bilateral surgery back in December.  One of the 'last straws' for me was late last summer when I could barely finish nine holes due to the hip pain and stiffness.  This past Friday, I walked the full 18 (6200 yds) and, with the exception of a little groin tightness on one side, was pain free.  Thing was, that one of the guys in my foursome was 4-under on the front 9!  Guess that should be inspiring :)
Unfortunately, I'll be lucky if I get to play once a week during the summer.

All the best on the links...hit 'em straight and long.
