I never hit the course without a hat. I usually wear pretty conventional hats but have recently gotten into the military styling.

My top three (in hand) would be...

  • Occidental College with Ghost Text (orange on grey).
  • Titleist (white and red on black).
  • Callaway (black and orange on white).
I also have a Kangol hat in the post. As seen here. Super excited to get this one!

Never, my head sweats too much and the hat is ruined after a few rounds, plus I don't think I suit hats

Always wear a hat and sunglasses. Have two Trilby hats and and two Ivy caps. Also a Tilley Outback hat for when the sun is really beating down.

I always wear a hat. I wear one of my fitted New Era baseball hats. I have a bunch but lately its been the blue LA Dodgers or the blue Milwaukee Brewers with the old ball glove logo. I'm an Orioles fan so as soon as I get a new O's hat I'll make another switch.

I've always wore a cap on the course and now that I'm older and wiser I wear a bucket style hat for best protection.

My hair is jet black, so I need a hat to keep from overheating. My standard is a plain old adjustable Redskins cap, but I'll frequently sport a Hogan-style flat cap or a Snead-style porkpie, depending on the season, my mood, and what else I'm wearing.

I have a couple "golf company" hats that I got as gifts. They don't get much use.

Always.

Love the Taylormade and Titleist unstructured hats. The Taylormade relaxed Radar R9 hats are the best golf hats I've ever worn.  My favorite, easily.

If only they made an identical flex-fit version.

For the record, I hate structured hats. Just thought I'd put that out there. Even in my baseball days, I couldn't stand wearing high fitting, boxy hats. Drove me nuts.

I have one hat I wear all the time its a Titleist Texace hat. You can't beat the Texace brand but they are so hard to find.

Other than that I have 2 visiors I wear and they both are Iliac.

I alternate between a UA ballcap from my alma mater, or, if the sun is especially cruel, one of UAs tactical bucket hats. Their stuff rocks.

My HS team played wearing Visors do I guess I just got used to them. When I first stared golfing it was always a hat. . . either my Lakers adjustable or fitted Cowboys. Now I have tons of visors; which one depends on what I'm wearing.

1. Red KZG visor
2. Black Nike (white swoosh)
3. White Nike (black swoosh)
4. White KZG Visor
5. Blue Adidas
6. Green/white HS visor

Unfortunately the assumption here is that everyone wears a baseball cap.  I have a nike cap I wear on REALLY sunny days here in Florida, but mostly I wear old school caps (think hogan) or military hats (I have a puma one I really like).

i have a handful of various fitted ones that I wear. My under armour is my favorite because of the awesome sweatband on the interior. ive found that having my hat to throw down on a poor hit keeps me from throwing anything more valuable...

I wear T.P. Mills Pukka hats and American Needle or Imperial.  I'm not a huge fan of Pukka hats, but I like sporting the Mills name.  American Needle and Imperial are two of the best hat companies out there.

If it's raining or really breezy I'll stick a cap on, but generally speaking the only thing on my head when I play is a jewfro.

When I do plonk something on my swede my usual headwear of choice is a Nike or Titleist cap. Low profile adjustable jobs, in black or white, and with a modestly-sized front logo. Unlike Ricky Fowler's mine are the correct size, and unlike Charley Hoffman's I don't go for the straight peaked look. I like a bit of a curve on the peak; albeit not a TWOCer-ish amount of curvature as per the uniform look of the local toerag population. Visors are off to a non-starter for me as I end up looking like Michael Letzig.

In winter I can occasionally be found sporting a grey flat cap. Slightly eccentric, I grant you, but I saw Sandy Lyle wearing one back in the late '80s, liked the look, and have had a couple of the things in my wardrobe, purely for golfing duty, ever since. Before anyone sniggers, or makes any whippet-related jokes, I was born in South Yorkshire and thus have an implied right by both birth and regional stereotyping to wear one.

I really don't care about brand. For me it's flex fit/fitted, or nothing at all. Every now and then I'll sport one of my Mizuno adjustable hats.

That's probably one of my greatest frustration with golf hats these days. There's very little choice when it comes to fitted/flex fit hats. I have a big head, and most adjustables are made for an average sized head.

Always wear a hat, adjustable and college. I have a Wisconsin Badgers baseball style cap that I wear for golf most of the time. Ive also got a few other baseball style caps that I rotate in and out from time to time.
Im a redhead and pretty fair-skinned, so sunblock and a hat are pretty much a must for me.

I don't usually wear hats, but today I got the infamous white Puma 'painter' hat inspired by Rickie Fowler from the Puma shop. It looks good on me though because I'm quite small and thus have a smaller head. I think it looks pretty good on me and will be wearing it next time I play lol.

I always wear a hat, but it varies as to if it's Flex Fit or Adjustable. I will roll Callaway, Titleist or TW.
