About Gunner

Here’s my key stats:

reside - lagrange, ga; age - 59; married for 36 years to the same girl (mother teresa!); 3 grown married daughters (in atlanta, ga; york, pa; and london, uk) each with one child; self employed management consultant

ATR: 2/20/10 playing tennis at a fairly high level for the first time in 5 years (having switched to golf full time).  This was the first day of my planned “comeback” intending to switch to tennis for the next 5-10 years while I was young enough to still go after it and having accomplished all I set out to do in golf.  My comeback lasted exactly 55 minutes.  I was in the tail end of the second set, felt a tightness/soreness in the AT about 5 minutes before I sprung forward to get a short ball. POP! Just like everyone says - shot with a gun - down for the count.  An ortho surgeon in the next court came over and said, rather dryly, “get up limp to your car and get readyfor surgery on monday”.  The rest of the story is on my first post, I believe.

Background:  I have been a lifelong jock and competition junkie. Played basketball in hs and college and rec leagues until my back started hurting in mid 40’s.  Started running senior year of college (in Converse high tops) and ran right up to the same back problems began including probably 50 + 10 k’s, a dozen half marathons and probably 25,000+ miles.  Took up tennis when kids were born in 75 and played seriously until 2000 when I switched to golf.
