Small injury, big pain for Jim Herman
Jim Herman, remember him? The PGA Tour veteran hadn’t been seen since the Genesis Open, where he limped away and withdrew. But now we know why. His little ‘piggies’ stopped playing ball, which meant so did he. For six months. The story goes that the nails on his little toes kept falling off, with the pain becoming so bad that he struggled to even walk. “It got to the point where I couldn’t make a swing without pain,” he said. The American ended up having surgery on both toes, and then developed a chronic heel pain which placed him in a protective boot. Now pain-free, he’s back on the Web.com Tour and finished T6 at the aptly-named Health Challenge last month.
