The Armchair Golf blog is the work of Neil Sagebiel. Not only is he the founder and editor of the blog, but he’s also the renowned author of two highly acclaimed books on golf. The Longest Shot is an examination of the 1955 US Open upset by Jack Fleck over Ben Hogan and his most recent book, titled A Draw in the Dunes, takes a look at the 1969 Ryder Cup which most notably featured Jack Nicklaus’s 18th hole birdie-putt concession to Tony Jacklin to ensure an overall tie. Both NPR and Golf Digest found it quite interesting.
I reached out to Neil with a kind offer of making him some golf eyewear because we’re always glad to have some of the finest golf authors wearing our work. We made him a pair of casual glasses, slightly less curved than our specialty, 8-base lens work but with the advantage of being versatile enough for the office and the course. Neil opted for a Transition Brown lens, which offers slightly better contrast than a Transition Grey lens, and we put an Anti-Reflective coating on it to reduce glare. We sent Neil a few frames to try on, like we do for all of our customers, and the finished product was a stylish, casual piece of eyewear versatile enough for whatever Neil gets up to.
He was kind enough to make a blog post about his new glasses, and we’re very pleased to be part of the Armchair Golf Blog. He tagged me in the label, which I assure him will do very little for search traffic.
