I'm with you on that @mdl, I'm not crazy about sunglasses for golf and have always felt that my depth perception is off a little when wearing them.

I borrowed one by father-in-law's wide brimmed hat last time I played. I liked it, but my wife took one look at me, rolled her eyes and immediately walked away shaking her head. I must have looked pretty silly, but who cares? Maybe it was just the hat and I need a cooler, retro one. Can you post a pic of the hat you wear?

Lol. My wife absolutely abhors my golf hat:

 

I think it's the bomb.

Stetson - The Gambler.  Someday I will play a round wearing this and a semi-translucent off-white linen suit and a linen oxford style shirt (also off-white, maybe light colored?) buttoned up just above halfway.

 I am looking for a new pair os sunglasses to wear on my face/hat while I play.  The model I use now is real slippery when they get whet and it makes it hard to tell how far away things are when they are moving around on my nose from slickness.  I need some that are more sticky or rap all the way round.  I was playing last night and I went to put down my bag and I dropped down a crevasse and/or sinkwhole because I just couldn't get the distance.  Yeah I know ... Anyway, the experience made me thank a lot about death and being dead and how many people percieve it as the "ULTIMATE" sinkwhole.  I can't help but to thank that is how golf is going with those huge 14" holes.  I would "LOVE" to hear what golfers think about this direction with the new holes from good and serious golfers.  No noob opions please!

 

I think you are looking in the wrong place.

 

Tell the model ( who ever she is ) to remove her wet self from your face - as you probably won't find any sunglasses up 'there'

Matt, do you also know when to hold 'em, and when to fold 'em?

 

Do you know it all the time, or only when wearing the hat?  Just curious.

Seersucker pants white/brown not white/blue.  Linen button down shirt untucked.  FJ spiked sandals.  THAT hat.  Cart girl would lose traction on the path due to the abrupt discharge of... well, you get it.

Any goose that resides in Canada and has citizenship would be a Canadian Goose regardless of species. A Canada Goose however is a Canada Goose regardless of where he/she resides.

 

And regardless of where he/she defecates. Should be declared illegal aliens and deported, IMO.

 At the poker table?  A decent amount of the time.  In life?  More often not.  I wear the hat mostly on the course, so when wearing the hat?  Almost never.

Oh yeah.  Seersucker is an awesome alternate option.  I've always been a sucker for white/blue seersucker, but I could roll with white/brown too.  Love the untucked shirt addition as well.  Though that would hide my curveball of adding a large belt buckle, maybe of my initials?  On the course, large golf club head buckle could work too.

How about a flask buckle? It not only says "I mean business", but it also says "I'm here to party".

Not your best. But you can still dunk.

Speaking of sunglasses, I lost mine about a month ago.  I distinctly remember having it in my car and when I went looking for it a few days later, it was no where to be found.

 

I even checked top of my head to make sure I was not going senile (even though I am way too young for that).

 

For the life of me, I have no idea what happen to that pair of sunglasses.

post #34 of 37

I cant hit a ball or even putt with sunglasses on.

 

They go on between shots and that is it.

 

But at least i havent fallen into a *sinkwhole* while wearing them.

Lost a pair this morning.  Found them on the front of my shirt.

Golf head belt buckle?  Here's what you do.  Forget this $5 per hole stuff.  Bet your sand wedge against your friend's sand wedge on the round.  If you win, disassemble his sand wedge and wear the head of the club as a necklace (a chain, if you will).  Then use the shaft as an alignment aid and stretching stick.  Keep it in your bag.  Make sure he knows. He will never be the same.
