Hårfint for Harrington

Det er ikke ufarlig å bevege seg rundt et treningsfelt med amatører og nybegynnere innen golf. Det er tross alt langt verre å bli truffet av en kølle enn en ball. Hør bare hva som skjedde med Padraig Harrington nylig.

Elbow Injury.

Yesterday I picked up an elbow injury at a golf outing in Washington DC.

Whilst coaching an amateur golfer on how to cure his hook, I stepped in close to demonstrate the action for a fade, but as I was stepping away he continued to swing and caught me flush on the elbow. My initial thought was that the elbow was shattered and it was the end to my competitive playing career. I nearly fainted with the pain and shock.

I applied ice to the elbow within seconds and also compressed it to minimise any inflammation. After an X-ray at the hospital I was delighted to learn that it wasn’t broken, but it still required 6 deep stiches. I have been advised to be cautious and it will need 10 – 12 days for the stiches to heal, so I have been forced to withdraw from this week’s FedEx St Jude Classic tournament in Memphis.

Talk soon,
Padraig.
