The best golf accessories

The mark of a well-prepared golfer isn’t their clubs or clothes, but rather their details. The real golfers are the ones that come stocked with the subtle accessories that may not be used for every round, but are ready to be called upon when they’re needed most. What are some items that fit this category? We’re glad you asked.

A well-fit pair of shades

Oakley Sylas

$116

If you want a pair of Oakley’s that look clean and fit great, the Sylas sunglasses have a streamlined look that fits well with any look or style. The frames are made of O Matter for added durability and comfort all day long and the three-point fit is designed to hold the lens in precise alignment. Best of all though, the Sylas sunglasses fit perfectly under a hat, helping you to add another layer of much-needed sun protection. Combining a hat with the Sylas shades will make you look like a celebrity not wanting to get noticed if, in fact, that’s what you’re going for.
