Default Eagle McMahon's Shoulder impingement

Unfortunate to hear about eagle's injury. Anybody got the scoop. Seems to playing quite well with a diagnosed shoulder impingement condition.

Also, would like to know what he is doing to recover.

He played in a tournament the week after he hurt his shoulder so I wouldn't worry too much about him. He's also young and can bounce back fast.

Wasn't this how Will's long time injury was once described?

Well he's vegan so I doubt he'll recover fully.

Will was a hot commodity before I got into disc golf. Was he playing the week after his "injury"?

Injury in quotes because I don't know what happened with him.

I'm not doubting he'll make a full recovery but mashing os discs for extended amount of time can't be good for you imo. Yeah when you're young your body can bounce back quicker but throwing pd2s the way that he does will put a strain on your body.

Eagle said it's FH related. Same with Nate Sexton. I'm wondering if it's from "elbow in".

Is keeping your elbow in on forehands incorrect form?

I have an impingement as well. It only affects OH and FH throws, at least for me.

SW's tutorial certainly helped me correct the start of a sore elbow and much more on form.
