A good pair of sunglasses is one of the precious few accessories that can elevate your look on the golf course. But style aside, employing a pair of shades can help the substance of your game: They protecting your eyes from the sun’s rays, prevents squinting, and can even help you focus. The best news is that golfers have more options than ever. As a sunglass-wearer myself, here are a few options I like.
The best golf sunglasses

A pro-approved pair
Henrik Stenson has become iconic for his sunglasses, so it’s perhaps fitting that he launched his own brand for the rest of us. The Iceman 3.0 model is the major winner’s signature pair: Lightweight and flexible to avoid damage, they’re vented between the frame and the lens to allow airflow for maximum comfort.

A pair for wraparound protection
But for golfers looking for even more protection can should opt for the Oakley Encoder, an oversize pair that won’t just cover your eyes but the entire area around them, and they’re functional enough to employ beyond the golf course, be it on a run or post-round cycling session.
A pair to get laser-focused
OAKLEY’s golf line of lightweight shades are built for on-course performance. With a built-in nose pad grip, you don’t have to worry about the Oakley Mercenary sunglasses slid – ing mid-swing. The design features bottomless proprietary Prizm lenses, which improve vision in all light conditions and provide one less distraction when you’re lining up over a shot.

A Phil-inspired pair of shades
The exact brand Phil Mickelson wears remains something of a mystery, but if you’re looking for a Phil-inspired look, you can’t go wrong with the classics: Ray-Ban’s Aviators. You can wear them anywhere the sun shines, and the total-black version will give you a Phil Mickelson flair. You’ll look good — but we can’t guarantee you’ll win the PGA Championship at the end of it.

An affordable pair you can wear anywhere
The sign of a truly good pair of golf sunglasses are ones you can wear on and off the course. Warby Parker’s Barkley frame offer a timeless look you can wear anywhere, and come in four different style selections. And starting at $95, it’s a premium option that won’t break the bank, either.
