Hi all,

Just wanted some views on polarized vs normal sunglasses that you use during your golf game. I've been using some polarized eyewear for a while, but noticed that my green reading wasn't as good. I have to take the sunglasses off to get a better read. Anyone having similar issues? It could just be my eyes, but just wondering if there are others with the same problem.

Would welcome any recommendations for decent eyewear suitable for golf.

I am a big SUCKER for sunglasses. Have tried so many...
I have used yellow, blue, green and polorized lenses for my golf games and have not had any problems with green reading...
Most sunglasses are good as they cut-off UV rays and especially polorized lens, they cut off reflections completely and they are very good for fishings trips and finding your golf balls in the ponds.. Laughing Laughing
So I guess, its individual preferance, when comes to green reading... Razz
Should you or anyone out there, is able to find a certain type of sunglasses that are very good for reading greens, please do let me know..would very much appreciate it... my 2cts worth....

I found the Oakley Radar with G30 lens to be one of the best for golf. The Radar frame offers good fit. The vented lens minimises misting up and the G30 lens works for me. However, the G30 is quite hard to find in Malaysia. Some shops I asked had no idea what Oakley G30 is.

For info: http://www.oakley.com/products/4678/15284

For those who do not want to spend Oakley prices, NYX Golf is a good alternative with a full set of frame, case and 3 lenses for US$69.

Good luck.

Very interesting responses! thanks guys!

How I wish I could afford Oakleys...maybe one fine day. The other brands mentioned are new to me, but will look into them. Reliance Optical in Bangsar seem to carry the Rudy Projects sunglasses, so I'm gonna start there.

Hope to have a useful new pair by the next round

Oakley still makes the most ganas, stylo, gempak shades...tried some on last night. Haiya, stress man! It's just so hard to justify spending so much. My budget is around RM500.

I bought the yellow and black Lance Armstrong Livestrong one when I was in US. But if you're in Bangkok, Paragon golf deparment has all colours and designs but will cost over THB10k ~ RM1,000. I have seen one or 2 in a Midvalley optical shop for around RM900+ after 15% disc. Problem in KL is that I can't find the fancy colour frames like white and blue or red and white but Bangkok has them.

Cheers

im using those safety glasses that u can buy from hardware shops.
its uv protected but not polarised. i have orange colour lenses.
its way better to use when playing in cloudy days and also in the morning. our eyes need as much light as possible in order to look for our ball.
so upon teeing off, i can see clearly my direction and location where my ball lands much faster without having to squint.
advantage now is i can plan my next shot n feel confident to know what im doing.
since i wear this safety glasses, reading putts are a breeze as the whole green is emphasized becos of the orange lens.
so i gained better visual with the ball, i had cut down 5-8 strokes and it protects ur eyes. imagine u play muddy/soggy day, mud splashing to ur face. or maybe when u hear somebody shouting ball/fore and u have the safety glasses to protect ur eyes(LOL). anyways im just sharing for fun.

That's cool. Guess that price of these glasses will go up now that everyone's rushing to buy them to cut 5 strokes off! haha....
