I wear sunglasses every time I play golf. I have to.
In 2006, ironically on the golf course, I got a terrible eye infection -- which I won't get into, but you can ask me about on Twitter -- that ultimately left my left eye especially sensitive to sunlight. Sunglasses let me play without squinting throughout the round.
However, over the years, I've come to only play golf wearing sunglasses with lenses that help make the golf setting pop. I see the ball better, get putts online more often and feel I have an easier time picking out more precise spots for shorter shots.
That's why I was excited when I learned about Under Armour's 2016 line of sunglasses at the PGA Merchandise Show. Their Game Day lens works to pick up moving objects better, delivering more contrast, particularly with golf's color palette. This lens wasn't in another pair of UA sunglasses I had from a few years ago, and they're great for the beach or a sporting event, but not the best for golf. The Game Day lens is, well, a game changer for wearing UA sunglasses on the course. The golf course looks visually appealing with the lenses, and that means they'll benefit my game, even if subtly.
