I recently bought a pair of Oakley flak jacket 2.0 sunglasses with Oakley Prizm lenses. I have never liked playing with sunglasses on and recently have noticed that my eyesight seems to be declining a little. Having blue eyes, I decided it would probably be best to keep sunglasses on when I play and thus the Oakley Prizms came in. Great lenses who I would recommend to anyone for golf. Alright now to the part where it actually helped my game. When I first started hitting balls with these I noticed that I was looking out the bottom of the lenses to see my ball. I thought this a little strange and figured I would just return them and get another pair that didn't give me this same problem. For the rest of the day though, I was stuck with them so may as well make it work... To keep from annoying myself to death, I concentrated on keeping my head down and looking through the center of the glasses at the ball. The first swing I did this and boom, went dead straight and was smoked. I didn't think anything of it at first but kept hitting balls and sure enough, I was crushing everything(dead straight) as long as I concentrated on looking through the center of the lenses. I have always thought I did a good job keeping my head down throughout the swing and have never been corrected even when playing with the club pro. Apparently I wasn't doing a good enough job of it. The first two rounds after this small adjustment were 74, 72. These aren't super low scores for me by any means but they were a 74 and 72 with absolutely EMBARRASSING putting. If a tour pro had the putts I had then they probably shoot 65, 67. Putting aside, my point was that I struck it beautifully! All because of one tiny swing tweak that was brought on by a pair of sunglasses. I decided to keep the flak jacket 2.0s so that I would notice when I was lifting my head up again. The moral of this story is that basics and fundamentals are huge in golf! Make sure your grip is good and your head is down. Then hit it the hell up the fairway lol What is your General swing flaw that you fall into and how do you combat it? Post #1000!!!
