    Tomorrow is always different. Just remember that you play for the love of the game, the companionship, and a great walk on a beautiful day.

    Welcome to THP! I feel your pain (and your stiffness & your frustration when your body reminds you that its true age is 57 (or 58 in my case) and not 21). Great posts!

    Great to see some fellow travelers. Tue I played and was even through 4 but had to abandon on 6 when my back locked up. The muscles around the ribs that were broken have started protesting. Went home, iced, did laps at the pool, jacuzzi, ice, repeat. At least I can get to the YMCA to swim. Went back into the bay today and hit for a half hour. Still not quite right but didn't have to hobble out to the car ;)

    At least there is plenty of hockey to watch tonight...

    Welcome to THP

    Tomorrow will be a crap drive and a brilliant recovery shot. With the Joy of the random 6 foot 3 putt sprinkled in. Which we will all be begging to get back out there again as soon as possible :)
