A lot of golfers play golf with sunglasses, me being one of them. However, I don't think that most golfers give much thought to what kind of sunglasses they wear. Too many times I see golfers with sunglasses that are just way too small and barely cover their eyes. Because you look down at the ball, the rims of your sunglasses can obstruct a clear line of sight.
Protecting your eyes is a key element to longevity in golf. My eyes are very sensitive to sunlight, so I always carry a few different pairs of shades around. But, there's only one that I play golf with; I call them my "playing glasses." They have transition lenses and cover my eyes all the way down to my cheeks. There's absolutely no chance that they will block my vision.
Take a look at some PGA TOUR pros at the U.S. Open this week. There will no doubt be many who choose to wear sunglasses. But, I guarantee that each one who does wears a pair that has optimum coverage.
Get yourself a nice big pair of sunglasses and keep it vertical!
