Do you wear sunglasses while playing?

I find they cloud my focus, but really wish I could....guess I don't see too many tour players wearing they either.

I don't take off my polarized Ray-Bans while playing during the summer.  I guess I just never thought about it.  It's so hot and sunny here I don't think I could go without them.

I wear polarized sunglasses with colored lenses. They help me see the ball better, and the contours of the greens better IMO. If it is sunny out, they stay on all day.

Plus, it's just a good idea to protect your eyes.

I always play with sunglasses on... this past week we were on vacation and I forgot them and had to play without them. I did not like that at all.

I started after an eye doctor highly recommended that I wear them. I got the Oakley G30 Golf-Specific lenses and they work well. I had tried cheap sunglasses before, but they always appeared to leave a valley between me and the ball when I addressed it. These don't do that, and they don't affect my putting, so I'm happy with them.

Between shots, yes. Not during my swing.

Sorta, I wear frameless prescription glasses that tint in sunlight.

I wear prescription sunglasses, distance vision only. Callaway 1201 frames, green tint lenses with UV protective coating.

My first version had a lower-lens section for close-up reading. This didn't work as the line was right where I was looking at the ball when addressing any club longer than a 5 iron. Fortunately, my eye doctor had a 30-day return policy if a prescription doesn't work right.

My normal glasses are blended lenses, and I would have inconsistent head position when I looked down at the ball.

Also, the sunglasses lessen the chances of cataract problems.

I go days where I will wear them. And days where I don't. I really like protecting my eyes from the sun and wind. But sometimes I just find that my lenses are too dark. So I take them off. I guess I should be more regimented with them, but I'm not.

I switch between putting them on and taking them off depending on how bright it is outside. Wearing prescription glasses for me is a different story.

I wear prescription glasses and will wear sunglasses all day when the sun is strong and out all the time, do not like to switch back and forth

I used to do this until I lost my pair of glasses which I left on my bag, cheapies, but my favourite non the less.  Now they sit in the bag whilst playing.

I can play with or without them. I wear sunglasses so much that I don't realize I have them on when I am playing golf.

I never used to.  Couldn't find any that didn't distract me with light leaking in from the sides.  Then a friend pointed my towards the Oakley Flak Jackets, G-30 lenses.  I've worn them for the last 2 years and absolutely love them.  My eyes are a LOT less fatigued at the end of the day.  They never leave my golf bag, so they're always there.   I don't care for polarized lenses for golf, though I wear them for everything else......just a personal preference.

This. They become second nature. I don't see many people at my club play with them on though...

Can't wear them while playing, but I'm trying harder to wear them more the rest of the time when I'm out in the sun.

Costco: Ray-bans, Spy, or Nike. They're comfortable, and $40 is cheap enough that I don't cry if I lose them.
