English term or phrase: Sleep with a Golf Ball
Sleep with a Golf Ball
Many men are positional snorers--they snore only when they sleep sunny-side up and their tongues droop back over their airways. To cure yourself of this, go to bed wearing a pocket T-shirt backward, with a golf ball sewn into the pocket. Every time you roll onto your back, you'll land on the ball. It's tough to get cozy on top of a Titleist.

睡在高尔夫球上
Explanation:
睡在高尔夫球上/带着高尔夫球入睡

真的长了见识,第一次听说这样可以治疗睡觉打鼾。不过高尔夫球厂家一定会为此而雀跃。

许多男性的打鼾是体位性的,即当他们仰面睡时,他们的舌根后垂从而堵塞气道,造成打鼾。

我的理解是,舌根及其悬雍垂才是造成打鼾的原因,而不是整个舌头。
