Why Annika Sorenstam’s high-tech sunglasses are perfect for golf

Finding sunglasses that are both fashionable and functional for golf is one of life’s great sartorial difficulties.
Sporty frames with loads of helpful technical attributes don’t always look very flattering, while high-fashion sunglasses with bigger frames tend to have a hard time fitting under hat or visor bills, not to mention staying put on the bridge of your nose.
So when you find a pair that ticks both boxes, it tends to be love at first sight. Enter the Revo Relay Petite: The rose-gold aviator frame is perfectly on trend (and newly scaled down for petite faces — yay!), while the lenses incorporate Revo’s signature NASA-based polarized lens technology, which was initially derived from technology NASA developed as solar protection for satellites. The result? Protection from 100 percent of UVA, UVB, and UVC light to help reduce glare, provide crystal-clear clarity on the course, and prevent vision problems.
Recent U.S. Senior Women’s Open champion Annika Sorenstam just signed on as a Revo ambassador, and plans to collaborate with the brand to design new styles that will make their debut in the spring.
“I’ve always been diligent about protecting my eyes from the sun, especially while on the golf course,” Sorenstam said in a press release. “With Revo’s superior lenses, I can be functional and fashionable even on my busiest days.”
