Restaurant & Accommodation JASON DAY CHRONIC WRIST AND THUMB INJURIES THERE was a time not so long ago when golf fans wondered whether Jason Day would ever fulfill his potential, such were the never-ending recurrences of the wrist and thumb injuries that had plagued his early career. No sooner would Day come within a whisker of winning a major than he'd be sidelined again, playing the frustrating rehab waiting game. And no sooner had he seemingly put those ailments behind him than he was struck down with a debilitating case of vertigo during the US Open. The Australian could barely stand at times during the third and fourth rounds, but he bravely soldiered on and was right in the hunt for his maiden major title right up until the final few holes. Incredibly, that elusive major victory came just weeks later at the PGA Championship, as did the world's No.1 ranking. LLOYD MANGRUM WAR-RELATED INJURIES MODERN day golfing injuries seem somewhat soft when you compare them to those that afflicted Hall of Famer Lloyd Mangrum during his early career. Like many golfers in the mid-20th century, World War II sliced right through the middle of Mangrum's playing days, and his time in the army well and truly took its toll. He broke his arm in two places when his jeep overturned during the battle of Normandy, and later he received shrapnel wounds in his chin and knee during the Battle of the Bulge. He returned home in 1945 with two Purple Hearts and four battle stars, then set about adding some golf tournament victories to his list of distinctions. A year later he won his only major title, the 1946 US Open, and he chalked up an incredible 16 top 10 results at the US Open and Masters between 1946 and 1956. OTG
