I hated....I mean HATED visors until I recently tried on a new school T.P. Mills visor.  All I can say is that I am a convert!  I really love how light they feel on the head...can only imagine how comfy they'll be on a warmer day.  And the low pro look just fits my melon perfectly.

I am not going to stop wearing hats...I will likely wear them 75 percent of the time, perhaps more..but the new school visors have totally changed my attitude.

Low pro new school all the way.  

BTW, I am 40.  I don't think age has anything to do with it.

Gotta get a new Mizzy visor to match the new irons.  :)

From a health standpoint, a visor is useless.

I don't wear a visor much any more due to receding hair line and ever increasing thinning on top. But when I do, watch out for sunburned head, I prefer old school.

I have 3, a black Titleist, a blue 2000 US Open Pebble Beach, and a white Masters and these are getting almost impossible to find.

I like the old school visors a lot better for me.  I have never been a fan of the chopped off hat look of the lo-pro visors.  I tried to wear a couple of them and just felt like a dork.  Some people pull them off better than me, though. I just look better in the classic old school style visor.

On a side note, I thought the old school visor was making a bit of a comeback, according to this poll, I guess I was wrong.

Old school looks exactly like it sounds old!  New school and a fat belt buckle show old schoolers you can rock the links with a flashy vibe.

Why are they putting a different color material at the end of the brim on alot of new hats and visors? I am not picking on you gxgolfer. I just saw the picture and it reminded me of a gripe I have been having. I love picking up a new hat or visor at a course I play for the first time. But, more and more it seems that all the hats have a stripe at the end of the brim. I hate the way it looks. I guess I am just a plain jane type of guy, but I like a hat that is all one color.

Does anyon else feel the same way or am I the only one?

you're the only one!  :-)

seriously though, Im a hat person (b/c i dont have much hair) but I like the different color on hat or visor, it sets the brim off in an understated way.  


I think visors work GREAT for people like Poulter, Luke Donald, Freddie....that have hair that really looks good on them, or really defines them in a way.

Old school for sure.  The new "visors", if you can even call them that don't even look like true visors, but hats with their tops cut off.

I also think, with old school visors being harder and harder to find, the players recieving the visors will be impressed with your choice to go old school.

The visors I like are really "hybrids."  I have a big head, so the new school visor or a baseball cap just doesn't look right.  The old school visors have a tall "logo" section, which I don't like.

Just my opinion but I think visor's are terrible looking.  Now I have to be honest, I'm 'bout as bald as you can get up top but I still think they look bad even with a full crop of hair.  I'll stick to a ball hat, preferbly a hockey-related one.

You're not alone.  For me, it's not so much the way it looks but the way it feels.  The brim is heavy and stiff as a board.  Not comfortable at all IMO.

I think you will find the divide in preference is directly associated with age. Most of the guys that have been around awhile probably prefer the old school tour visor while most young guns prefer the the low profile.

For me.....old school no doubt.


I guess im an exception. I am 16 and prefer the old school. My dad found a couple a long time ago at Troon North.

Unless you want a dermatologist digging squamous cell carcinomas off your scalp, you should eschew the visor altogether - even if you have hair, it'll catch up with you sooner or later.

I wear both but prefer new school visors on hot days, much cooler.  I understand why you baldies would hate visors. Also, your heads probably don't get as hot under a hat on a hot humid day.

The imperial HX visors are the best I have found.  They are a performance fabric that wicks and never looks wet,  I hate the sweat band at the base of the brim that some hats and visors get.
