Flat bill hats look far more out of place on a golf course than a pair of jeans ever would. Where I grew up, flat bill hats were worn EXCLUSIVELY by thugs and wanna be gangsters. Is that the image that you would prefer on the golf course?
Some people call it young, fresh, trendy, whatever-catchy-title. I just cant get into that. They will always be the mark of a wanna be thug in my mind.
I highlighted the problem with your argument. Not everyone thinks what you think, not everyone grew up where you grew up, that is *your* association. It is an ignorant blanket opinion that makes you prejudice for no good reason at all. Where I grew up flat bill hats were worn by truckers and farmers, sports hats came with normal bills and everyone curved them on their own. It isn't "young", it isn't "fresh", it is a TREND. I'd rather have flat bill hats on my golf course than people who have no tolerance for what other people choose to wear, be that jeans, shorts or flat bill hats. As I said before all that I care about is that the clothes are: clean, in good shape, and not vulgar or overly inappropriate (a nightgown for instance).
On a related note, just our of curiosity, I googled the origin of the flat bill hat. The first page that came up, www.flatbillhats.net incidentally, had this little gem tucked in the statement on the first page:
"The origin of these hats can be traced to ghetto proliferation in America, when the social divide between the two in the streets of New York was obvious. As a matter of fact, curved bill hats are perceived to have more suburban look in it.".
So, back to my original point, of which you made a poor attempt to discredit, flat bill hats are for wanna be gangsters and thugs. If someone wants to wear one, by all means, have at it. If someone wants to wear a moomoo to the golf course, by all means, have at it. As long as the person displays proper etiquette on the course, and maintains a decent pace of play, I personally couldn't care less what they wear.
