Ffs. My burgeoning golf career is under serious threat. Been told I have a high probability of needing a total joint replacement in my middle left finger (no doubt from over use on the roads and at the football), plus the possibility of both knees needing replacement as well.

If I can get back out there at all, do they have a Tour for old robots ????

Geez. Bit devo at the moment….seems the finger alone might be a big problem where gripping the club properly is concerned.

The finger problem is definitely a result of RSI by the sound of it. I suffered from the same thing awhile back, I fixed it by reverting to bras d'honneur ;):))

Heh heh heh. Not quite. It’s an old footy injury that has already undergone reconstructive surgery ie wires, hooks etc. It’s just about given up the ghost it seems.

Only the skill of the surgeon may be able to buy me some more time before a replacement, and that’ll still sideline me for a long time anyway based on previous experience. Otherwise, it ain’t looking good longer term.

Baseball grip ??? Happy Gilmour approach ?

Good luck with that. I can manage a degenerative spine with a lot of stretching, anti inflams on occasion, and knowing when to ease off. But the finger and knees appear to have got the better of me. See the first surgeon about the knees on Monday. Very painful locking up of them both at the moment. Feel like I’m shredding them actually. Totally out of action.

Sorry to hear that Redford.

You will get there with the knees, might need a swing adjustment if you put a lot of torque through the left one in your backswing turn but plenty of people get back to golf after replacements.

Fingers are bastards to repair. I haven't had much to do with joint replacements but I've heard they are pretty good, I think you'll find it will work just fine for a golf grip.

Thanks TBR. Hope you’re right. The first PIP volar plate reco about 14 years ago was an absolute *smile* to deal with after. Took 9 months before I could get the motion and strength back to grip the club. Very painful the first few months as well.

Whatever, looks like I’m out of action for a while. GH dealing with the finger and TW the knees.
