Re: Any regrets?

I avulsed all five of my nerves, so no function possible without the surgery. I had my surgery 26 years ago, one of the first intercostal into the bicep. Elbow bends, which means I get some function out of it on a daily basis, better than not having anything. Worth it? Yes. Would I do it again? Yes....

Go Team Winger!

We were really late signing up for this and I wasn't even planning on doing it this year as I spent so much time away from my family training for the golf world championships. But Chris and Fernando twisted my good arm so I agreed to join them and we are doing the Challenged Athletes Foundation, San...

Re: Single life and thoughts on dating

I haven't posted a reply to this because there was so much to comment on and it really is so much more than just dating. This thread goes to one of the core things I believe and talk to people about when I do my public speaking on "Overcoming Life's Challenges", not just bpi'ers. Your circumstances ...

Hi, I have no use of my arm, 26 years now, this has never be...

Re: World Open One Armed Golf Championship!

Did you pause and take a picture on the top of the bridge on 18 (like Nicklaus)?

Re: bent fingers uuugh

I was injured 26 years ago and I still have straight, flexible fingers. I avulsed all five of my nerves, so I have a complete loss of use as well. In my efforts to keep my fingers straight, I "work" my fingers all the time, bending them back and forth pretty hard. I do it subconciously all the time ...

Re: World Open One Armed Golf Championship!

Had to show the birdie put, you can see the ball just about to go in the cup. Wow! Even got a nice round of applause from the people surrounding the green.

The week in St Andrews was amazing, got to play eight rounds of golf in seven days, all of them on the different (there are five chamionship and one shorter courses) courses at...
