Golf swing could cause tiny fracture in hand

Q. About six months ago I was golfing and hit the ground hard and hurt my right hand. It was sore but I was able to keep golfing. Since then, whenever I swing hard my right hand still hurts. I saw my primary doctor, who took X-rays. He did not see anything broken and gave me an anti-inflammatory medicine. I took Ibuprofen for a couple of weeks but it did not really help. Although I am still able to play, the injury has significantly affected my golf game and I wondered what else it could be and what I should do.
