Golf Damages Hearing
According to this article from BBC News, playing golf can damage your hearing. The culprit is apparently thin faced titanium drivers. And that's probably the only time I'll talk about golf equipment like I know what I'm saying. Doctors recommend using earplugs, but many golfers use the sound of the driver to judge how well they hit the ball. Just think, in a few years, Kevin Hall could have a definite advantage over many of his competitors. But at least those pesky grooves will have been dealt with by Golf's ruling bodies.
