Title: Earliest return to playing golf after ACL reconstruction?
Post by: gizzardio on April 02, 2010, 05:43:10 PM
Hi

I had an ACL reconstruction on 13th Jan this year so am nearly 12 weeks in. Things are going well so far but itching to play golf. I had a hamstring graft put in on my left leg which would be my leading leg in golf.

Has anyone got any ideas or own experience of when they returned to the driving range and then actually out on a full course. I'd be happy with just going the range with a pitch wedge for now.

I got told 6 months by the surgeon but he said he didn't really know and put it down in the same catagory as any twisting sport and the physio said maybe at 4 months back to full golf.

Any input welcome..

Thanks

Rob
