62 E y e c a r e B u s i n e s s . c o m April 2017 Bubb tson Background. Pro golfer on the PGA Tour—a nine-time PGA Tour winner and a two-time Masters Tournament Champion (2012 and 2014). He is among the longest drivers on the tour, with an average drive of 305.9 yards—and is one of the few left-handed golfers. Spon- sored by Oakley. What do you love most about golf? I really love playing golf because of how fun it is and how challenging it can be. I always want to try and hit that shot they say can't be hit...and to try things that just seem a little crazy. What are your sport's unique visual needs? What makes golf unique F E A T U R E P R O V I S I O N EB [is that] many different visual fac- tors come into play. Not only are there so many colors to evaluate on a hole—greens, browns, blues, and more—but there's also shad- ing from the trees, maybe a slight overcast that day, or even a reflec- tion off the water. Favorite Oakley style? Right now, I'm loving the new Crossrange sunglasses with PRIZM Golf lenses. The style gives me optimal coverage and protection, and it has interchangeable nose pads and temples so I can easily switch between the course and off-course style. The PRIZM Golf accentuates greens and brown, helping me spot transitions between the fair- way, fringe, and rough, and gauge distance with accuracy. Favorite golfing locale? I love the Greenbrier Old White. They are doing a lot of great things to rebuild it right now so I'm excited to see the changes and updates. Best tip for the perfect shot? The one part of my game I'm always working on is my mental side. If I'm able to have a clear head and look to have fun on the round first and foremost, that'll help focus my mind, stay committed to shots, and set me up for success.
