First golf swings since back injury

My back recovery is coming along, but much slower than usual.  This last tweak was very bad.  I’ve had numerous occasions where stabbing pains and spasms literally caused me to yell or groan.  Sitting is not fun.  I get very stiff and have to move around to loosen up after sitting for even 5-10 minutes.

While watching Tiger and the final round of the Buick, I’ve been going outside during commercials and making some light golf swings in my bare feet.  These are the first swings I’ve attempted since the 21st of July.

I feel okay but very scared to really go for one.  I’m going to just keep easing myself into the swings.

Tiger is now on the 18th fairway, with a three shot lead.  I’m thinking of strapping on my gear and heading to the range to hit some easy shots and see if I can do it.

    It’d be cool to see what your swing looked like on a golf swing analyzer, before your injury. Swing tempo, angle of attack, club head speed… all that.

    I’d want to compare your old swing swing against your new swing and see how they differ.

    It’s fine to be fired up and wanting to get back in the game, but be careful not to get too active to soon. Best of luck on your recovery.
