Craig Stadler Excited to Play in Dominican

Golf Pro Craig Stadler Excited to be Playing in Dominican Republic

Not just two weeks ago Golf Pro Craig Stadler was told that his hip was beyond all healing and he would be needing a hip replacement. The good news is that with cortisone injections Stadler has been told he can play this year, and as the hip is beyond repair he can swing as hard as he liked without doing any more damage.

The Hip replacement operation is scheduled for this November and Stadler still fully expects to maintain his current regime. He will just take it week by week and see how it is. He is looking to arrive in the Dominican Republic Punta Espada course game sharp, “There are a lot of difficult long-iron approaches, where par can be a real challenge, the sort of competitive action I seriously enjoy.”

Stadler has won in Japan and Australia but states that the Cap Cana Championship is his favourite tournament. “Last year I had a great chance to win. I was in the lead going into the final round but didn’t finish very strong. I hope this time I can play well because winning in the Dominican Republic is one of my ambitions. And there’s special a bonus in this for me – if I win, I get to say my thanks in Spanish!”
