..... you play too soon after the implant. It is normal practice to wait 8 to 12 weeks before doing a full swing and then all should be OK  ( I played today as it happens )

There is slack built into the leads to allow for activities like swinging a golf club

After the initial wait period for all to heal you should be good to go.   I've had a PM or ICD since 2009 and play golf and hockey multimple times a week.  

You know you're wired when...

You can feel your fingers and toes again.
