    Golf is a dangerous sport

    I played in a golf scramble last Monday and did something funky to my hand... specifically my right index finger.

    Been in pain all week and finally went and to the doctor. Turns out I tore the tendon's and bone chipped an area of the joint. Now I may or may not need to see a hand surgeon, depends on how it heals.

    The good news is that I can still turn, I like holding the handle in my right hand, so the guide is still in the uninjured left.

    Now that is funny, I needed that more than I do the Vicodin.

    Broken at golf

    I play a lot of golf. Have a friend who some years ago broke a finger playing golf. Just as you his hand hurt for a few days he finally went to Dr. Had a clean break of a finger.

    Maybe both breaks were half done at some other activity and the impact of the golf swing just finished it off.

    Well, that's why I stay away from the dangerous sports like golf and rugby. Full-contact kick badminton is where it's at for me.

    Vaughn, I heard this will be an Olympic sport in 2012!

    Jon, I hope you heal fast. Good to know you can still turn, what about your scroll work?

    BTW I bet that bandage would work well for buffing, just don't go spring for the "Lanier Buffing Set" one wheel/finger at time...takes longer, but hurst less.

    Chuck, My Dad once said that he enjoyed playing Golf. I was suprised because I had never seen him do so, nor mention it. So naturaly I had to ask him about the comment. He replied, "I like watching all the temper tantrums"
