working on my truck Friday night, Drilling a hole and drill caught and twisted my left wrist counterclockwise, sprained real bad and hairline fracture on the end of the ulna! DOH! bummer! now I'm depressed! LOL!
I'm sure if you practiced a lot ... eventually you start getting use to right handed throws.. how long will it take?? no idea. Sorry to hear about the sprain and hairline fracture. I broke my ulna once boxing on a trampoline.
Just get out there and do it... you will be suprised who much better you will be playing after 18 holes with the wrong hand.
And its a lot of fun ... make sure you go out with someone and get them to throw with their wrong hand also. I ran a tourney back in Nov. which the second round was played completely with your wrong hand, everyone had a great time.
My practice includes 15 mins both putt/approach and driving with my wrong hand now.
That is a bummer!!! Yeah, it will seem wierd...At first it will have entertianment purposes...but you can do it!!!
We've had a couple of players have to switch hands for a healing timeline....Here and there. The most important thing is let it heal completely before throwing. What we did was work out a lefty handicap for a righty who couldn't throw with his right hand.
hey nibs, sorry to hear about the injury, looks like now i might have a chance to whip ya on the course !! LOL just kidding, i hope your right handed throwing efforts pan out for you, actually if you look at this positively, this could be a chance to learn how to throw opposite handed which is an idea i have toyed with myself lately, as my sidearm throw has been hurting my arm lately, so i have found myself lately thinking about trying to throw opposite handed, could be a useful tool in the ole bag of tricks, we have a couple players in our doubles league that are proficient throwing left and right handed, so its not out of reach or uncommon, good luck, i hope to here some positive updates as to how its working out for you - DC
we have a semi-local pro who taught himself to throw lefty while injured and now throws with either hand depending on the hole. he was already an experienced player when he got hurt and he says that learning with the other hand actually gave him a chance to learn with proper form instead of the collection of bad habits we all tend to collect when we first learn by trial and error.
