Small in­jury, big pain for Jim Herman

Today's Golfer (UK) - - FIRST TEE -

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.
