Oakley Sunglasses at The UK Open Golf
The professional golfing tour is at its busiest period with Oakley Sunglasses making another appearance at a big sporting event. With two of the four Major tournaments having already been played, the most anticipated one is finally here. The UK Open was the first ever Major to be played on the professional golfer’s tour and is the only Major tournament to be held outside of America. Originally won by Willie Park Senior in 1860 the UK Open has been played every single year since then making it the oldest golfing Major on the planet.
Consisting of four rounds around the weather beaten courses of Great Britain the best golfers currently playing in the world will play until someone crowns themselves the UK Open Champion and lift the unique Claret Jug. This year
The Open is being played at Royal Lytham and St. Anne’s based in Lancashire. The UK Open has been played here ten times previous to this weekend. The undulating greens and hard placed bunkers are a test for anyone not least the professionals who are trying to score under par. Shaping of the ball will be a necessity this weekend. Tiger Woods has quoted the following this week showing even the best in the business struggle:
“It’s just that you can’t get out of the rough. That bottom six inches, in some places is almost unplayable,”
“I’ve never seen the rough this high or thick and dense.”
Since 1860 there has been many different winners of the UK Open including this weekends favourite Tiger Woods who has previously won this tournament 3 times. Great Britain also has some hopeful’s looking to bag this weekend’s most prolific championship. World number one Luke Donald is currently in good form with a good finish at last weeks Scottish Open. He will be hoping to impress this weekend.
Other players flying the Flag for Great Britain are Oakley sponsors Ian Poulter and Rory McIlroy who have both been shouting about the new and updated Oakley Fast Jackets. The new Fast Jackets have the Switchlock technology integrated into them which most golfers will love for its easy lens changeability. Oakley Fast Jackets also come with the G30 lens, this lens is specifically designed for golfers giving them increased contrast and making their eyes work less.
All of Oakley’s Sports Performance range comes with many different lens options to choose from to help maximise overall performance and visibility. Other Oakley favourites for the UK Open will include the best in the range Flak Jacket, the entry level Half Jacket 2.0 and the newly released Radarlock which will also feature hugely at this years London Olympics.
