As some claims, along with the golf club, the golfer’s vision is the most valuable asset while playing golf. So, selecting the right pair of sunglasses for golf to improve the vision is very important. Here we lists top picks from major brands such as Nike, Oakley and Tifosi.

In terms of sport and golf sunglasses, Oakley is one of the iconic brands. Using them, in fading light especially, is so much helpful in golfing. But that doesn’t mean other athletes active in sports like mountaineering, fishing and cycling couldn’t use these glasses.
To avoid sweat and rain building up on the eyewear’s lenses, the Flak Jacket uses a permanent lens coating, Hydrophobic. That helps to provide and maintain a clear and sharp vision to golfers. In addition, keeping these lenses clean is easy since they are also smudge resistant. And to prevent dust and dirt particles from clinging, they eliminate static electricity as well.
