I really like the boonie hat that Kirk Triplett was wearing this past weekend at the open. I contacted Ping and they said it was "Tour" only and not available to the public. This was the same response they made a few years ago to someone on this forum so nothing has changed. I really don't get that kind of policy and what it accomplishes for them but I'm sure they don't care about my opinion.

It's got a great shape. has anyone seen something similar?

I have seen that style called "compass" hats. I got a nice one on sale for $27 from Outdoor Research. Also try REI. I see lots of caddies wearing them. They were selling them at the US Open as well. Check the USGA store.

Imperial Hat Co. Old Norse model is the best hat for sun protection. It has a wire in the brim that holds its shape in the wind.

I did not know they were called boonie hats. I wear one with the name of my second home course on it. I always called it a floppy hat or a Pukka hat which is the brand name
