With so much equipment and apparel available to golfers nowadays, it’s easy to overlook a fairly essential component: sunglasses. Maui Jim, a leader in the sunglasses industry is working hard to change that. While all of their sunglasses feature frames for every lifestyle and patented Polarized Plus 2 lenses, their newest releases are tailor-made for the golf course and could help lower your scores in addition to improving your style.
The Stone Crushers (pictured above) are a durable, tough pair of shades but with a frame made from lightweight, grilamid material so that they don’t weigh you down throughout your round. The frames also feature a high-gloss finish for a smooth, sleek look and adjustable, non-slip nose pads making it possible to customize so they fit your head exactly the way you like.
Maui Jim’s best feature on the Stone Crushers, as it relates to your golf game, is their Maui HT lens technology which is designed to help the consumer better see things that sit on surfaces. When looking through the lenses you will see sharper contrast and more vibrant color, which heightens contrast and depth of field so that the low light being perceived is much more vibrant. In layman’s terms, the white golf ball will really pop against the darker, green grass, especially early in the morning and late afternoon. And I know I can’t be the only one who plays better when they can see.
Maui Jim's Stone Crushers come in matte black, matte root beer or white pearl, and are priced at $189.00.
Also recently released are the Maliko Gulch sunglasses (pictured above), which are perfect for just about any sport, particularly golf. What really stands out about the Maliko Gultch shades is how lightweight they are, and how well they seem to fit your face, from the first time you put them on. This is because of the exclusive, featherweight MauiFlex memory metal frame which 'remembers' fit and shape longer than traditional frames.
The Maliko Gultch frames also feature a high-gloss finish, anti-corrosive hinge and a double bridge with adjustable, non-slip nose pads. Neutral grey lenses are perfect for the (hopefully) bright and sunny conditions at your local course, because they offer rich color and contrast along with the highest available light production instead of ordinary grey lenses that flatten light evenly across the spectrum. Another lens option is the HCL Bronze which provides excellent contrast and a warm, subtle bronze tint.
The Maliko Gultch sunglasses come in gunmetal and metallic gloss copper and are priced at $339.00.
Both sets of shades come with a Maui Jim case and cleaning cloth and are available in prescription. For more information or to make a purchase, visit Maui Jim online.
