Sam: How is the rehab? I hit about 50 wedges today...which felt pretty good. I think I may be ready to at least donate in June, as long as you do as well!

That's great Chris, I been hitting for three weeks.  Up to 80 swings now
 Still fighting with some pain but it's getting better.  Maybe we can have our own match.

Sounds like a plan! Unfortunately, I still have some pain as well, but it is nowhere near as bad as prior to surgery. I suspeect we have to live with some of this for a while.

Heya Chris! yes, long time! I think we need to have "Hardware" division for LD...this way, all of us surgical recipients of some hardware can compete and not feel bad when we doink one off the tee! 

I am up to 10 screws now (8 in neck, 1 in each foot)...along with a disc replacement contraption straight out of the "Saw" movies!

Instead of the traditional First Aid kits with the standard issue ibuprofen and tylenol...our division will have real pain killers and there will be a Snap- On Tools truck there as well to replace or fix our hardware.  In order to compete, one must provide xrays to show the hardware, and/or medical device card issued in order to pass the "wand" test at TSA checkpoints. 
Oh, and one last thing...the Championships must be held in HOT climate so that there is a better chance of not hurting so much.

I am so game for this division! 
Winners receive a bubble to live in for a year!

Ha.

The road's been fun everyone...

Grunt 300- I keep running into an old friend of yours everytime I hit balls in FL. Sarah Trews....golf coach at Florida Gulf Coast...I let her hit my Krank driver....she loved it...and she misses competing against you and other top female LDers. It would be nice to see all of you top LDers get back in the mix. Good Luck.

Sam,  I'm planning on being there.  You have been a supporter of the older long drivers for some time and I appreciate you putting together this event every year.  I hope we can get a larger crowd this year because it's fun and if you get lucky maybe you can win a couple of bucks.

See you in June.

David

Sam is napping right now. We don't want to wake him before his big weekend. I think the SS (maybe 3) are going to hit in the GC. Don't worry, we're all handicapped in some way by surgery!

To Sam and Joanne, thank you very much for being the great hists that you are. It is always fun to see everyone in Decatur and hit some balls. To everyone that came, it was great seeing all of you again...you are an elite group of old boys that still can bring it! If you weren't there, you missed Big Al Dobson morph into Small Al Dobson...you look great Al!
