I'm pretty sure I've got bursitis.

Whatever I got, it seems to be healing okay. I'm making a concerted effort to follow through on my forehands and "starting the lawnmower" instead of using a snappier, hurky jerky motion. My accuracy is garbage now but I think the lack of a natural follow-through was a big part of what was aggravating it. I was able to throw all the forehands I needed to today w/o pain or soreness, they just hit way more trees than I'm used to.

Anybody got any tips or videos where I can bone up on my mechanics to encourage a more natural follow-through on the forehand? I feel like my weight transfer is leaving something to be desired. I'm trying to follow-through so that my right leg follows my throwing arm (right) around with it instead of colliding into my other leg or wrapping behind it. It's hard to do that and keep the front foot closed at the same time though.

Sidearm was very painfull for me, then someone gave me the advice to lower my hand so that it was kept at an angle under my elbow - and it worked!
Maybe it will do the trick for you as well!

Thanks. Yeah, it definitely hurts less when I do that also. Unfortunately it's really hard to throw an anhyzer or flex shot and keep your hand below your elbow.

I know one thing, the other day I did a turbo putt and it absolutely hated the heck out of that. Fortunately turbo putts are not a vital part of my game.

I found this worked to relieve my soreness. Got my elbow away from the body and pain is going away.
