I was so pleased to see Paula Creamer win the 2010 U.S. Women's Open a few weeks ago
I know how much work she had to put in to get past the pain of surgery and rehab.
Early in 1984, 8 years after my back injury, I set about rebuilding my golf swing. What I learned during that period was so valuable I pass it along to any client who comes to me after suffering any type of injury. Namely, long after you are healed from an injury, your brain must be convinced there is no pain.
What is rarely addressed is the mental impact an injury long after it has healed, no matter how minor.
If you find yourself struggling with this problem, not only can you overcome it, you stand to improve your golf swing and hence your game of golf.
My suggestions, mundane as they may seem, are both real and realistic. I recommend you give them some consideration if a struggling with the aftermath of an injury, no matter how slight.
