Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Golfing 8 weeks post op!!!
« on: October 06, 2008, 04:59:27 PM »
Well at 6 weeks I was given the ok to golf, I intended to go then, but every time we were going to get together to play it either rained or my golf buddies could not go.

Today the weather was good (for Pgh is October) probably in the 50s at tee off and 60s when we finished.  I originally planned to play 9 holes, then chip and putt the last 9.  After the front I felt good so I continued on to the back. 

I had originally thought I would not use my driver, but it felt ok no matter what I used--- I can swing and make the hip turn fully now without any effort, most of the holes I beat my partner in distance.  I also made sure that I walked as much as possible as we used a cart but on some holes I walked it.

What a difference now that I can swing without pain and actually finish 18 holes strong--- btw I also beat my partner with a 91 (I am usually in the 80s) not too bad since I have not played since the end of July.  I won't say what my buddy played as I do not want to embarrass him   ;D

I can't wait to play next Monday.  My goal now is to get back to walking 18 by next year, I am too out of shape now, but by next May I plan to walk when I play.

It's not about whether or not you will be golfing in March, you WILL BE!

Good luck, hope you get a hole in one.

We had a great time and i played better then i expected. But the nicest thing about the whole trip was playing golf and having NO PAIN!!!  I'm now medication free and have a clear mind.

 PS Remember golfers out there..... Straight is long!
