Just because the frame size may be smaller, young golfers deserve the same performance features from their eyewear as adults. At SportRx, we make sure to give young athletes the same attention-to-detail treatment as the pros. Here are the frame and lens criteria required by our Sports Opticians when selecting the best youth golf sunglasses.
When teeing-up, full neck and head mobility is crucial to hitting your best shot. Slipping sunglasses can be a distraction, so all of the frames in our lineup include rubber grip to keep the frame securely in place. They're also lightweight and comfortable to wear, so your child can stay focused on the round.
For lenses, there are two main components to consider: lens height and contrast-enhancement.
Too-short lenses will leave them awkwardly peering below or above the lens when teeing-up. That's why we've selected tall lenses so they have maximum coverage and don't have to worry about frame alignment.
Contrast-enhancing lenses are the best choice for golf sunglasses. It makes details pop, helps to read the green, and track the ball. For a complete list of lens color recommendations, explore the Best Lens Colors for Golf Sunglasses.
