Oakley's recommended glasses for golf are pinkish in tint.

 

Thanks Iacas.

Yes, I just got back from the Oakley store and got the Prizm lenses. Very happy with them. Can't wait until it greens up around here.

I have some polarized brown lenses that I wear exclusively for golf.   These allow me have better depth perception than my darker lenses.

I also LOVE the Oakley Prizm lenses.  I've used Oakleys for something like 7 years now.  Nothing else comes close.

I was playing in a local charity tournament several years ago. At one point there was a pretty good "heated conversation" between to guys about if a pair of sunglasses that were specific to golf were legal or not. One guy was wearing a pair that supposedly were "golf specific". They looked like regular sunglasses to me. 

I did not pay much attention to the issue at the time, because it did not have anything to do with me. What I was really thinking was why anyone would care at a charity event? I found out later there was a rule against wearing a certain type of sunglasses for golf.

I didn't realize any type of sunglasses were illegal.     After a Google search, I'm still uncertain.

I would think if the sunglasses violated rule 14-3 in some way they would be illegal. I wear glasses that darken when I am out side, so I never really thought much about sunglasses.

Based on my research and also clarified at Oakley yesterday, polarized glasses are not conducive to golf.

They might not be for everyone but my prescription polarized glasses are significantly better for me.   Without the polarized sunglasses, my eyes are burning and tired after a round when the sun is shining.    My polarized sunglasses make golf easier for me.

I don't know. Like I posted, that was several years ago, and I did not pay much attention to their dicussion.

Polarized are fine. They just reduce glare off wet surfaces.

    • I believe I heard Joe Rogan talk that some MMA fighters use it during training. Not heavy use, but a lower dosage, and there seems to be benefit. I can't remember his exact quote on it, but I believe it was about marijuana since he is big on its legalization.   
    • No idea. Guess we have to wait and see. It's probably my favorite comic of all time. Haven't read it in a while, though, probably going to do it again now with the show running. Every time I re-read it I catch something I missed the last time. There were subtle details and clues explaining the setting. I didn't catch everything and some stuff I felt might have been shown for a reason (like the picture in the chief's closet as he was getting into his uniform) I didn't understand the significance of. Honestly the only thing I didn't like was that weird comic book block lettering Oklahoma! quote they used as a transition in the opening scene. The network kind of ruined that show by making it run longer than the showrunners intended, didn't they? My memory on it is a little hazy, but I remember that being a factor, and I believe they were writing the show as they went along that made it the convoluted mess it ended up being. My guess is that it's a byproduct of the event created by Ozymandias. Maybe they'll explain it more during the season. He's a British actor known for being the voice of Scar in The Lion King (1994)  I've been trying to avoid reading spoilers about the show, but my best guess is he is playing Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias). There was a newspaper headline in one of the scenes that said "Veidt Confirmed Dead" or something to that effect, so I have no idea how it all goes together. Seems to me like he's the same character. He didn't get caught. The US won the Vietnam War in the Watchmen world and it won Nixon a lot of popularity. He was still president during the events of the comic in 1985. That's Dr. Manhattan. He's a central character in the Watchmen. Not sure what his role will be in the series, if any. That explains a lot.
    • Buckeye... will you be there to explain to my head pro why there's a chalkline on his practice putting green?  😊
    • I'd be curious to know what the performance enhancing benefits of marijuana are. I am absolutely stupid, anxious, and 100% athletically uncoordinated under the influence of marijuana, so I can't imagine playing golf in this state. Of course, this varies from person to person. Aside from coffee, I don't enjoy the effect of any mind altering substance, so I rarely partake. However I don't have anything against those who choose to use legally or illegally, and at my home course I see plenty of people puffing on joints, taking whiskey shots, and then some. I also don't have any confidence in the anti-doping agencies to regulate use of PED in any sports, but I believe professional athletes are responsible for understanding the rules of their organization and adhering to them, even if the rules are dumb.
