Found out this morning I tore the cartilage in my wrist so they are putting a cast on me Monday. Don't know what I am going to do for the rest of the summer, maybe live vicariously through everyone on here.

What really sucks is that I have been in pain for a little over a month and I just shot a 78 on Monday, first time I ever broke 80! I was really looking forward to doing it again.

Anyone else every have this kind of wrist injury before? How did it end up?

You aren't alone. My dad had rotator-cuff surgery a month ago, and will be off the course till at least next year. His knees are starting to go bad on him as well.

Sorry to hear you won't be able to golf for a while...hope for a quick recovery for ya!

Really sorry to hear that I wish you a quick recovery.

Question: What did your wrist feel like before you found out?
I hurt my left wrist last Saturday either golfing or bike riding. I could barely move it sunday morning with pain shooting between it and my elbow, most of the pain was in the wrist on the outside by the knob (pinky side). It really hurt if I rotated my forearm. It has gotten better but there is still some pain in the wrist when I rotate my forearm.

Hope you get well soon B/G. I'm in the same boat but for a different reason.

That Sucks, I have played through some serious wrist pain and it's no fun at all. Never tore anything in the wrist but had a broken elbow for three months two summers ago. Worst three months and then 2 months of rehab. It sucked...Heal quickly...

Sorry to hear about your injury. I'm out for a while with a different injury so I just read over this forum 20+ times a day and daydream about when I can play again.

Hate to hear it, hope it heals nicely and you get back sooner than expected.

I was out for almost 3 weeks after I had a run in with a vegetable slicer with my hand. I was going stir crazy not being able to swing a club. On the bright side, my putting improved!

Sorry to hear that. I have not torn cartilage in my wrists, but I have done so in my knees. Usually just get them scoped and cleaned out, and am back to 100% in a couple of weeks at the most.

My high school golf coach had a cast on his left hand one season. He played one handed. Even with his right hand he was better than most of us!

Thanks for all the good wishes everyone, hopefully I can come back strong, might even be able to play some golf at the end of the season, until then it's THP or bust.

I could barely move it sunday morning with pain shooting between it and my elbow, most of the pain was in the wrist on the outside by the knob (pinky side). It really hurt if I rotated my forearm. It has gotten better but there is still some pain in the wrist when I rotate my forearm.
I is similar to that, rotating hurts it, especially counter clockwise, hitting the driver has hurt a lot

Just a momentary set back. Heal and do your physical training and you'll be back out!

Can't speak to the wrist, but I had reconstructive knee surgery last November. I was laid up for about a month before I could really walk around again, but at about 3 months I was able to go hit balls again. Try to get physical therapy to help with the healing process and take it slow! If you start feeling the pain again it's time to take a break. You'll be back in no time!

Look at it this way: That 78 is going to go a long way.

It sucks that you have to quit playing for a while, but having broken 80, you have a very positive thing to focus on and if you want a thought to get you through, think about how much better a player you've become and how much opportunity will be there when you get back. You will have some time to let those thoughts sink in and I think this whole situation has the potential of making you a better golfer in the long run!

I wish you a speedy recovery!
