We live on the 5th hole of one of the courses in our community. Every day after I surgery I looked out my back windows and watched the golfers go by. I kept my putter by my bed so I could improve with practice. But. my doctor said NO golf for six weeks. I waited and on the 42nd day I played 18 holes of golf. I guess I always try to obey the rules, you learn that in golf.
I play three to four rounds a week. I would play more , but I have severe chronic back pain that requires me to rehab between rounds.
Don't push it if you do not feel well. I tried to swing easier than usual when I first started back and I noticed that my index scores were lower than they are now (two months later). Maybe I should learn something from that. lol
It's great to have something to look forward to.....
