Better sleep, better golf

Are you a golfer, and do you have sleep apnea?

If so, the news is quite encouraging. In a study presented at the 2009 annual meeting of CHEST in San Diego, it was shown that patients with sleep apnea who were treated with a continuous positive pressure device during sleep (a common treatment for sleep apnea), improved their golf scores significantly after several months of treatment.

This study only confirms what we already know about sleep, lack of sleep, and sleep apnea: Better quality sleep improves performance.

So, if you (or someone who observed you while you sleep) think that you have sleep apnea, be proactive, take the next logical step and seek medical advice.
