I only wear sunglasses on the back of my hat so everybody knows I’m a big deal.

I never understood how that worked.  I place my sunglasses on the brim of my hat when I'm not wearing them.  I tried doing that backwards upside down thing and it just felt totally awkward.  I always felt I would lose them that way.

Wearing them on the back of your hat is the ultimate poser move. Only reason pros do it is to not block the logo of a sponsor.

Growing up I never wore sunglasses.  On the golf course, off the course, it didn't matter.  Never wore them.

Then I developed a pterygium.  Which sucks, is annoying and causes a lot of discomfort.  So now I ALWAYS wear sunglasses when outside.

I wear more of a wraparound sunglass on the golf course and while doing active stuff outside (biking, hiking, running, etc.).  I don't wear polarized on the golf course.  I did find a noticeable difference while reading greens.  I found myself constantly lifting the polarized glasses up to see the contours of the green.  You know when you look at greens and you can see the contours by seeing a part of green which looks lighter (white almost) than the another part?  You know that spot is downhill and the green is running that way.  Well with polarized lenses, you don't see any of that.  When looking at the greens, unless the breaks were obvious, everything looked kind of the same.  With unpolarized lenses, you still get the reflections of sun off the grass and you it helps differ.  For whatever it's worth, my eye doc was a huge golfer and he also recommended unpolarized lenses for golf.

Outside of golf, I only wear polarized lenses.

I've worn Oakley shades for a long time.  The current "prizm" lenses work well in the sunshine, with UV protection but not too dark to see the contours.  The enhanced colors make it slightly easier to read greens, but not significantly.  The main thing is being able to play a round of golf without squinting due to the bright light.  I think it lessens the tension around your face, and it pays off by the time you get to the finishing holes.  I think I'm on my third set of lenses in my Flak Jacket frames, which fit me well and don't fall oiff.

Started wearing Oakley's Golf PRIZM line last year, and now I never go on a course without them, even when it rains.

While they protect your eyes, they also do an incredible job at making your ball more conspicuous when you're in the rough (by darkening the grass, and enhancing the color of the ball); makes the ball much easier to find. The lenses also display many of the contours in a green you can't see with the naked eye.

I highly recommend them.

Here's a sample link to a pair: https://www.oakley.c...nt=888392332349

Iím digging the new style too. They fit a bit easier under the hat brim and also without the ear socks they slide under your hat and over the ear much smoother.

Just have to say, youíve got to be foolish to not wear good sunglasses at all times while playing.   You only get one pair of eyes and youíve got to protect them.  I didnít start wearing sunglasses early enough and now Iíve got issues with halos at night.  Totally avoidable if I had started wearing them early on.

Yep. Me too.

Also have pinguecula. Never thought ďwhite eyeball envyĒ was a thing, but I certainly do.

Totally avoidable with sunglasses and the sun is only getting brighter.

Use sunglasses folks.

I think good sunglasses are very important to protect your eyes. Think about how much you are looking up! I would recommend Oakleys with no rim along the bottom of the frame. Staple golfers glasses! My personal fav's Fast Jackets which are discontinued. I have three or four sets of lenses for all lighting conditions.

I too love the Fast jackets.  I wish they would bring them back!!

I do sometimes. However, I've noticed that I have to tee off the 1st hole with them on and leave them on, if I take them on and off it completely throws my depth perception off. I generally take them off to swing and put them back on between shots.

I play with them on. Helps save my eyes and I see better with them. You want to make sure you got the golf specific lense because standard sunglasses would mess with your depth of perception and cause you to hit too fat or thin it.

That's not true.

Golf specific lenses really help with the picking the ball up against the sky and grass.  I've never owned a pair of golf specific glasses/lenses and have never had an issue with depth perception.  Trouble tracking the ball when it's a bit overcast, sure, but no depth perception issues.

For me it depends on what glasses I am wearing.  If I am wearing my more curved, sportier glasses, I have this issue too.  If I take them off, I have to take them off after hitting the ball when I know I will have a couple minutes between shots as my eyes readjust.  I think this is because the curvature of the lenses.  If I wear more normal sunglasses which have flatter lenses and aren't necessarily made for sports, I don't have this adjustment.  I almost always wear my sport sunglasses and once they are on, they are on. I only take them off if it gets way too cloudy... and in Phoenix that happens... well... it doesn't happen.

Well that was my case I guess. My other golfing buddies had similar issues too. To me, ploarized lense made the ball appear closer to me at address and I typically end up hitting it fat. Golf specific lenses don't cause this problem for me

Polarized lenses effect the way light is reflected.  They reduce glare.  The common issue with this in golf is generally around reading greens because it makes it more difficult to pick up nuances on the greens which your eyes generally detect due to light being reflected a certain way off the grass.  I guess in theory this may make you perceive the ball different since light would be reflecting off the ball but idk.  I'm not a sunglass lens expert so who knows.  I don't use polarized lenses for golf because I did have trouble picking up subtle breaks on greens when I tried them.  But I've never seen, or really even hear of, people having depth perception issues due to wearing non golf specific or polarized lenses.

I live in Southern California where it’s bright and sunny 395 days of the year

But in all seriousness I always play golf wearing a hat and sunglasses, I can’t fathom how anyone plays without them.....

Maybe Monte just loves his hair that much lol

I wear sunglasses.

Hats do mess up my hair, but that’s not why I don’t wear them.  Feels like my head is cooking on a hot day Andre gives me a headache.  Cold and rainy days I can.

That’s a good point, I have a disproportionately large head (it’s like Sputnik) and if I’m not wearing a hat with some elasticity in the band I usually get a headache after 18 holes

I also usually keep some ice cold water in a thermos to pour on my head/shoulders every few holes to beat the heat, it’s barbaric but it works wonders
Life is good

I started wearing sunglasses golfing a few years ago. Was never a fan of wearing them until I ordered Peakvision glasses made for golf.
The lenses are progressive (I think thats what they are called) When you look up they are darker but when looking down like when to putt they are lighter if that makes sense.
I was thinking of starting to also wear yellow lens glasses during cloudy days but keep forgetting to put them in my golf bag.

When the company which was based in Stuart Fl went out of business I got a couple pairs of Jack Nicklaus Peakvision glasses for a great price. I guess Jack is still involved as I noticed he had Peakvision glasses around his neck at his Memorial tourney.
Recently I have been getting emails form Peakvision and they have a new owner. The prices are much more expensive also.

Ironically I don't really wear sunglasses any where else except for golf. Once and a while I will while driving.

I'm 59 and I have already had 2 cataracts removed. The sun is a major cause of these. Doctor says I will get more if I don't wear sunglasses. The sun is brutal on the eyes. It can also promote macular degeneration which causes blindness. Protect your eyes!!

Maui Jim's and Costas are very high quality, but I feel Costa Fantails stay on my face the best.
