I've worked with many golfers who are keen to improve their game but have no understanding of the physical demands of the sport.

You don't know what you're missing. The old cliche is never more pertinent than when it's applied to your hearing. More often than not, you don't realise what you're not hearing until someone points it out to you. Have relatives remarked that you tend to have the volume of your TV turned up very loud?

It might sound strange but hearing loss isn't as easy to spot as you may think.
