The Top 8 Golf Sunglasses of 2018

Golf Sunglasses have become more than just a tool to protect you from the sun, they have become performance enhancing equipment that will end up saving you some strokes. The technology in golf sunglasses such as Oakley PRIZM Golf will help you see the blades of grass with more clarity and even improve your green-reading skills. Follow along to learn about amazing golf sunglass technology and our Top 8 picks for 2018.

What to look for in Golf Sunglasses:

Sunglass Rob has come up with the 3 keys to golf sunglasses which he calls the "3 C's of Golf" including Coverage, Contrast, and Comfort.

Coverage: Having great coverage for golf is key because a full wrap-around frame will enhance your peripheral vision. On top of that, the greater the coverage, the more comfortable the view will be when you are addressing the ball. More coverage will mean that even when looking down at the ball, you are still looking through the lens.

Contrast: More contrast will help you see breaks on the greens better than anyone. We recommend contrasting lens colors such as rose, copper, amber, or brown. These golf lenses will provide the contrast needed to enhance depth perception, allowing you to see the ball better in the air and on the grass, and read the greens with optimal clarity.

Comfort: Last but not least, comfort is a key feature to look for in Golf Sunglasses because you will be wearing them for 4-6 hours. Thus, rubberized nose pads and temples will make sure the sunglasses will stay fit on your face. Adjustable nose pads are also great, as well as lighter frames which will, in turn, make the sunglasses sit better on your face than in your pocket.

At first glance the Targetline may not look like a golf sunglass, but a few hidden features make this one of our top picks. Many golfers prefer to wear hats so Oakley engineers designed the frame to be hat compatible. The brow area of the frame is tapered down on the outer edges to avoid crashing into the brim and the temple arms are slim enough to be tucked underneath a hat. An Unobtanium rubber nose saddle and lightweight O-matter frame make the Targetline an extremely comfortable pair of sunglasses. Like all Oakley golf sunglasses, the Targetline is available with PRIZM Golf lenses to take your game to the next level.

Unobtanium rubber temples and nose pads will allow these sunglasses to sit comfortably on your face through the whole round.
