Adbono - Yes, injuries are definitely part of the game, and how people deal with those set backs says a lot about them. I think EVERY college athlete goes through some kind of issue(s), it is just a matter of how serious it is and how quickly you can run away from the college-injury-grim-reaper.
I'm glad to see your son open a new academic door and discover his golf skills. Shooting under 80 after 3 months is ridiculously good. It is really amazing that he can play golf given his previous health condition and requirement of stretching and treatment. My oldest son grimaces in pain when he tries to throw a baseball, and he graduated 6 years ago. However, he is fine serving in tennis and his one handed backhand which puts a lot of pressure on his right arm throwing elbow...i haven't figured it out yet.
Glad to see your son open that new door, and go running through it at full speed! Best of luck!
