…Play golf! – Golf can be frustrating, and that’s bad enough?but did you know that it’s one of the upscale pastimes that can make you deaf?

BBC News reports that frequent golfers in the UK have been going to their doctors for hearing loss, due to the sonic boom the metal head of the club makes when it strikes the ball. A 55-year-old golfer, who had been playing with his snazzy new King Cobra LD titanium club three times a week for 18 months, was told to wear ear plugs on the green. He mentioned that when the club hit the ball, it was “like a gun going off,” and when he received his diagnosis, he threw away the club.

Maybe golfers should take a pill before they go out on the greens.
