Playing Golf Bad for Your Hearing

>> January 5, 2009

Saw this interesting piece on BBC News “Playing golf can ‘damage hearing” that is most certainly partially hype.

That said, here is the advice…

Players who use a new generation of thin-faced titanium drivers to propel the ball further should consider wearing ear plugs, experts advise.

The sonic boom created by these clubs apparently can damage your hearing. The worst offender was the Ping G10 at over 130 decibels. If you have one of those bad boys, you might want to dig up some earplugs!

The article isn’t specific about how often you’d need to play with to affect your hearing which is why I’m a tad skeptical of how seriously to take this article.

im really disappointed because i was rejected to be a pilot because i have a 10% haering problem in the high frequency. Im a golf player and i use Ping G5 since a year and i think this is the main cause of this problem

gah! that's terrible but I'm not sure the research is valid. I wonder if it is!
