I just wanted to introduce myself. Getting back into golf after a long layoff. Had hip surgery 2.5 years ago which alleviated some of the pain I would experience playing golf. I starting hitting again about 5 months post op. Had screws taken out of my hip about a year ago which was causing bursitis in my hip which set me back some. Now I'm mostly pain free (or at least bearable) thanks to accupuncture. Used to be about a 15-16 HDCP but now that I am relearning things I have been actually striking the ball better (thinking more about my swing and playing within my limitations more). I've only been on the range since my initial surgery but I now feel pretty comfortable with my game and plan to play my first round in about 7 years next week.
I live in the San Diego region.
