Justin Leonard FedEx 2005Justin Leonard dropped a 62 today at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. He’s averaging 294.0 with the driver which is good enough for T83. Yup…Justin is one of the short hitters.

Speaking of short hitters, John Daly appears to have a case of “golfer’s elbow.” After doing a ton of work on my basement last year I had a case of “tennis elbow” AND “golfer’s elbow” at the same time. The difference? The pain is on top of the elbow with tennis elbow. The pain is under the elbow when you have golfer’s elbow.

I was at the point last year where I couldn’t reach up to touch my nose. I couldn’t lift a glass of water or gallon of milk. It took an entire year before all the pain went away. The strange thing with this ailment is that taking time off doesn’t really seem to help. I took an entire month off from golfing, and within one driver strike the pain was back.

I still get small flareups, especially if I hit harder balls. I have to hit softer balls (like V1’s).

JD is my buddy
and I hope he doesn’t have tennis or golfer’s elbow. It is no fun at all.
