I dislocated my shoulder April 12th. It popped back in itself. I walked home, poured myself a bourbon, and watched the rebroadcast of the 2019 Masters. Saw a doctor two weeks later, a surgeon a week after that, an MRI shortly after. Torn labrum, broken bone, and bruised my humerus so badly I actually flattened a portion of the rounded end.
Been playing the odd round with half swings (I can’t get my arm above parallel), seven clubs, and no driver because I don’t swing fast enough to compress it.
180 yards on my 7-iron is now 120, but still fun being out there. Haven’t gotten doctors opinion on playing, but relatively pain free if I clear my hips through impact (it was right shoulder). Stopping the body and flipping is when it hurts. Been doing rehab as instructed, going painfully slow, body is guarding the joint still. Learning a different game for now.
