hi. my younger brother has the condition in both arms. really good reading through all the posts. he's 46 and going see another specialist this weak. even if only to turn his left hand further round for less strain on shoulders. we are in the uk. by the way, he's playing off 6 handicap (has been down to 4 in the past). seems his hands are set in fairly good position for golf and always in close to correct position going through the ball (even though he can't putt s good as me ha ha- he's sittin here as i'm writing this ha ha- i only ever got as low as 13 handicap). bro has to strain shoulders and other joints more than other golfers and has had a few ops on different joints for wear and tear, but keeps himself strong and as supple as possible. sorry for waffling. bro won his golf club's 'club championships' last summer (no handicap) after years of trying and getting close. I don't have the same condition, however have some lower back problems and x-rays many years ago confused the doctors as there was something on x-ray that they said had something to do with the bone fusion before i was born- maybe not connected- who knows.View Thread
