The sooner you: The sooner you'll be able to return to your usual activities.
1-rest. Put your golf game or other repetitive activities on hold until the pain is gone.
2-ice the affected area.
3-take an over-the-counter pain reliever.(aleeve or advil).
4-reduce the load on your elbow.
6-return to your game.
