The pilot stated that he was intending to do touch-and-go landings, but decided to make his landing a full-stop due to the glare from the sun. After he touched down, the glare from the sun was so intense he had to move up in the seat, slipping his feet off the rudder pedals. He couldn't stop the airplane and ran off the end of the runway into a light pole, which resulted in substantial damage to the wing.
