    None. I cant golf with them on. At best I put on my dark smoke gray Oakley between shots but I can't hit a ball with them on

      Same here. It messes with my depth perception or something. Putting is even worse. My eyes gotta go naked except between shots.

        With sunglasses, there is more going on than just colour / tinting these days. Oakley have their Prism technology, Smith have their Chromapop, and various brands have their own lens tech to provide certain highlighting or edge-enhancement.

        As a skier, the Prism and Chromapop tech really aid in various lighting conditions. "I'd pay anything" to improve low light / flat light conditions where you cannot see the snow surface below your feet because of flat lighting, and feel like you are skiing blind. I've been in situations where I think I am standing still, but actually moving -> freaky !

        My optometrist also carries a brand of sunglasses called "Costa del Sur", developed by guys who deep-sea fish, and have their own filtering tech. A couple years go I bought a pair on her recommendation, really liked them and they became my go to pair, lost them at end of this summer, but snagged a couple new pairs on the $cheap at Amazon over Black Friday ( one is grey tint, the other brown )

          I have some grey ones and when it is bright and sunny I generally need sunglasses as my eyes are very light sensitive. As for the best ones, I have no idea. I use sun dog, only because they are inexpensive and fit well.

              I personally use the Oakley shallow water prizm lenses on the course, sometimes the Black iridium polarized. If you get a wrap around sport style frame its not very distracting during the shot but with a regular lifestyle frame the light can come in through the sides and it can create a bit of a distraction when hitting your shots.

                Lens colour is just one factor.

                I am using Oakley Flak 2.0 , Prescription with brown lenses . I would not normally choose Oakley because they have some of the poorest quality lens available but I had the frames so lenses were only $400 , rather than close to $800 for a pair of glasses. I was able to sell the prizm lenses to offset the cost by 1/4.

                I do like the fit but unequivocally, Maui Jim makes the best and will be ordering a pair this year.

                  I've read polarized aren't good for golf. Something about not being able to read green contours. So one day I used a pair of non-polarized. It was so bright I couldn't see our elevated 16th green. Anyhow I use a standard brown or yellow.

                    Polarized has nothing to do with brightness.

                    I have 2 pairs of Oakley both same lens the dark smoke gray tint. One polarized one not. Both provide same sun cover. Polarized is a completely different tech that has to do with glares etc I believe

                      Me too. But for some reason I still always bring them along and they sit on top of my head or in my bag. I really should stop doing that as I know I'm destined to lose a pair on the course.

                        The Golf PRizm (Dark Pink) works wonder for me. Make sure to get non-polarized though since it is known to screwed up depth perception

                          I use the Oakley Prizm Golf lenses - they provide great colour contrast and work well in both low and bright light conditions.

                            Pinkish colour lenses are usually recommended for golf. For brands Maui Jim, Costa, and Smith were best lense quality during my deep search on this subject.

                              Maui Jim or Costa, just not too dark. I have a pair of Oakley Prizm but can’t read the green with them on, they have become a backup pair. I have two pair of Maui Jim’s that I use regularly
