My husband loves playing golf, He and his business partners play at least once a month, depending on the weather. He has never taken formal lessons, so his swing must have been a little off, because he developed a bad case of golfer's elbow.
The entire inside of his right elbow was red and swollen. He also was complaining of pain, so he went to go see the doctor. They gave him some pain medication, and told him to lay off the course for about six weeks so his elbow could heal.
Hopefully, after going through all this, he swallows his pride and takes some lessons on how to properly swing his club. I would hate for him to re injure himself.
