Guess I don't get the sunglasses problem with golf?
I play with sunglasses every round...I know the pro's like to take them off to help read the greens, but I don't seem to have an issue with it.
Granted, I don't play golf for a living.

Is depth perception such a problem when wearing sunglasses?
Do you not wear them when you drive? It doesn't affect you when you drive a car? just a golf ball???

Just curious...
-- P.J.

When driving on the road, the depth perception change is minuscule, I can't even tell. But when standing over a golf ball, there is a very noticeable difference. I consider myself a pretty good ball striker these days, but if I slip the sunglasses on I have issues. I bet if I were to play a round without taking them off I would be in the 90s easily when I'm usually mid to high 70s. Maybe this is because I've always bought cheap sunglasses and they affect it more than others. No clue.

Thanks, now I know why I usually shoot in the 90's which means if I don't wear my sunglasses I'll be in the 70's, not :laugh:
