Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 175
So the folks at Sportsmed Biologic must be doing something right, if one of their most high-profile clients, Marcus Fraser, and his results are anything to go by. After a horror 2014 season that was derailed by injury and saw Fraser manage only eight events and not play a tournament between February and mid-October, the Victorian contested 21 tournaments in 2015, recorded three top 10 finishes and missed just five cuts. Among those performances was a tie for 20th at The Open Championship and a tie for fifth at the British Masters, as well as a tie for 13th at the recent BMW Masters. Fraser’s strong run of form has him knocking on the door of the world’s top 100, but there have been times over the past five years when the 37-year-old wondered if he’d ever be able to pick up a club again. In 2011 he was picking up his young son when he suffered a prolapsed C5- C6 disc in his neck, which rendered him barely able to walk and at one point took away the use of his right arm. He had surgery to install a synthetic replacement disc and, incredibly, played at Doral just five weeks later. But injury gremlins again poked their heads up in 2013, when a nagging pain developed in Fraser’s hand during The Open, which quickly became debilitating and was diagnosed as carpal bossing – a small mass of bone that develops in the back of the wrist.
