    A few weeks ago, Friday Dec. 1st I was playing with Josh aka Hotsauce which ended up being my last round of the year here in the 603… Got some good snow last week.. We’re having a great time and enjoying our day off from work… Around the 11th hole I hit a shot with my AP3 7 iron. I see dirt on my club and instead of using a brush and towel I decided to whack the club on the bottom of my DNA’s. Whacked once, twice and BAM! Third time missed the shoe and whacked my shin… OUCH! Definitely got me good but kept on playing..

    We get to the 19th hole and we’re sitting at the bar having a brew.. My leg was throbbing so I decided to give it a little rub… As I started rubbing, I felt like I was rubbing a pineapple.. My leg blew up.. What the heck did I just do… My whole shin area was just swollen.. I needed to get home.. Went home, showed the wife and she couldn’t stop laughing… Ice it, etc. you know the routine for something like this..

    Long story short, the DUMBEST golf injury I could ever imagine getting… The swelling has gone down some but b/c of gravity and all that crap, my ankle swelled up as well from the blood going down.. At the moment my ¾ of my foot is now black/blue/purple and god knows what other color has shown. Saw the doctor and he laughed.. It’s normal he said, stuck it up.. You can walk; no blood clots and it’ll be a few weeks before it’s finally healed…

    Anyways, anyone else care to share an injury like this? And then getting laughed at by friends… Oh yeah, my boys were brutal, rightful so b/c I was being ONE big baby….

    NO MORE WHACKING FOR ME! Brush and towel.. Brush and towel.. brush and towel….

    Hey Speedy, I had to chuckle myself. Only because I've cracked my ankle a couple times doing the same thing. Hope it feels better!
    Play Well,

    Oh man, at least it's the off-season. Hope it gets better soon. I feel your pain. Seems like I always have some pretty crazy ways to get hurt too. My worst was a broken left ring finger that took two years to heal and caused all kinds of problems with my swing. Broke it stopping a dog fight, pulling a dog by it's collar. Popped like the cork on a wine bottle. Speedy recovery! (yes, pun intended)

    Godspeed my friend. Take the time to mend, you have 2 pretty important events in the first half of 2018 that you need to be healthy for, TH40 and TP18.

    Ouch! Hate to hear about that, but I did get a laugh. haha! I have been known to bust my shin on the trailer hitch when getting my clubs out of the trunk. Not a fun thing, either.

    Can't help but laugh, Speedy. But you bet I have done the same thing! Hope it's better soon. I need my partner in tip top shape for 2018!
