CROMWELL, Conn. -- Geoff Ogilvy’s left shoulder is getting closer to 100 percent after an injury to it caused him to miss about a month of action from mid-May to mid-June.
“Memphis I was semi worried about it,” Ogilvy said Wednesday at the Travelers Championship. “It’s getting better every week. Today I didn’t even think about it. My first three shots in the morning, maybe it’s just age, like a few different parts of my body hurt. But after about 10 it seems to go away and it’s business as usual.”
Ogilvy is back at the Travelers Championship for the first time in 10 years -- mostly because he missed a couple of starts due to the injury.
“The problem with injury, you don’t miss just tournaments, you miss golf altogether because I couldn’t really do anything,” Ogilvy said.
When Ogilvy did return, he tied for 66th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic then missed the cut at the U.S. Open.
“I didn’t really play that bad last week,” Ogilvy said. “It just didn’t turn out very well, so your expectations are getting back to where would have been before.”
