Club Cover Hand

The Hucks, as we are prone, were sitting on the back patio one Sunday afternoon after our round. Pedro and his wife, as they are prone, joined us.We were curious as to why Pedro did not play with us that day, and he began to explain. Instantly, his wife began to wince and tap him on the shoulder.Looking at him, she shook her head back and forth horizontally, indicating “no, don’t do this.”Pedro, though, was determined to embarrass himself.

Pedro explained that he had injured his hand while removing the head cover from his driver.Upon this announcement, several Hucks spewed beer from their mouths and broke out in laughter.The group was as sympathetic as always.“Wow, Pedro, going to the gym has really paid off for you; you’re stronger than ever.”“Pedro, you need to get that hand x-rayed.”“You should stretch and loosen up before you start taking off those head covers.”“I’ve got some Vicodin if you need it.”“What do you think – you’ll be out for three or four weeks?”The Hucks, as usual, were merciless. Only making the ridicule worse, Pedro began to rationalize, explaining that he had just purchased a new head cover and that it was very tight.

I originated the medical diagnosis.Pedro was suffering from “Club Cover Hand.”

Pedro’s wife, an avid golfer herself, knew what was coming. Immediately after he announced his injury, she simply got up and walked away for a while, leaving him there alone to reap the rewards of his honesty.
