What is the most important piece of equipment in your golf bag?
Most folks will say it’s their putter. Others rely most on their driver, or even a favorite iron in their set. There’s also probably a weird guy you know who really likes his gap wedge. Like, to an unhealthy degree.
All of those answers are wrong. Without a doubt, the most important piece of “equipment” in your golf arsenal is your eyesight. (Threw you a curveball there, didn’t I?)
Take it from a guy who is as blind as a bat. Being able to play golf with 20/20 vision is more important to me than any fancy golf club, golf ball, or training aid. However, playing in glasses or contacts can be a pain in the neck (or eyes, for that matter). And don’t even get me started on prescription sunglasses.
The fine folks at SportRx have developed a method that eases the pain of finding high-quality performance eyewear, and they very well may have changed the face of the game in the process.
I had the chance to speak to Rob Tavakoli, head optician of SportRx, to learn more about his company’s product and how it can help eyesight-challenged golfers like me enjoy the game more. Within two minutes I could absolutely tell how passionate Rob was about his trade, the game of golf, and helping people see the world with more clarity.
SportRx partners with a number of high-end sunglass manufactures – like Under Armour, Nike, Oakley, and adidas – to provide incredible prescription sunglass solutions to athletes from all walks of life. Rob and his team work directly with every customer to get a comprehensive understanding of their eyesight prescription needs, resulting in a set of sunglass lenses that are engineered to heighten your ability to read greens, see shots more clearly and to improve your golf game.
For example, Rob fitted me with a new set of Nike wrap-around sunglass frames coupled with rose-colored lenses to combat glare and improve my eyesight during a round of golf. Plus, the lenses transition from light to dark depending on that day’s sunlight factor.
After playing one round of golf wearing my new sunglasses, I can proudly say that SportRx provided nothing less than the best sunglasses I have ever worn in my life. Period.
I write a lot of product reviews for the Back9Network. Each company I work with believes they have the “next big thing” when it comes to golf. I am telling you, hands down, you will not purchase or use a product that is more important to your game than what SportRx is offering to the visually-impaired.
