The best sunglasses for on or off the golf course

As Phil Mickelson has proven in recent years, sunglasses can actually serve a dual purpose on the golf course. Not only can modern lenses provide visual protection that helps golfers see and play better, but they can boost your cool factor, too. While some high-tech sunglasses can look a bit too athletic, the styles we’ve chosen can seamlessly transfer from the course to a day party.  Below, we highlight eight pairs of shades that provide high-tech performance and don’t skimp on the cool factor.
