What you may not realise is for the last 25 years he has been struggling with a hearing loss, wearing a hearing aid on both ears. Sound is such an important factor in Tony’s game, so that he knows how well the golf ball has been struck. He needs to be with the best care providers for his hearing health.

Speaking about his hearing loss he finds the most difficult aspect is that people will assume that you can hear and unless you explain prior to playing that you are hard of hearing people think you’re ignorant! He champions awareness campaigns and admires the work organisations like the independent hearing aid sector does to help change perception of hearing loss. So much so he is a proud patron of the English Deaf Golf Association.

‘I see the value in working with Independent Hearing Aid Audiologists as they are able to provide the best products suited to my hearing needs with access to the newest technology available from around the world.’

‘The service from independent’s is personal which when dealing with such an important sensory need is invaluable!’
