Golfers should wear a cap and not a cowboy hat
by Torsten Ritscher on May 25, 2020
Many golfers wear a flexfit cap, but some high profile professional golfers wear cowboy hats, which many see as headgear that should not be worn on the golf course.
The cowboy hat
Rory Sabbatini has played on the PGA tour for nearly 20 years and is sometimes ridiculed for his bad taste in clothes. In the summer of 2019, he was seen playing with a black and red cowboy hat. The hat was not loved by everyone, but that didn't stop it from winning trophies.
Shingo Katayama is a Japanese golfer who also wears cowboy hats, albeit in a more pleasant shade of white. John Daly has a reputation for being the worst-dressed golfer according to Golf365.com as he has been spotted playing golf in tropical Hawaiian pants and no hat.
Why the hat golfers wear matters
Golfers wear baseball hats to display their sponsor's logo, but that's not the only reason. Golfers spend long hours outside in the sun and therefore need protection. Flexfit caps have sweatbands that keep the head cool, dry and odorless. The visor keeps the face in shadow, making it the easiest to see the ball against a sunny sky.
A hat needs to fit snugly so that it doesn't fall off during the golf swing. Cowboy hats and other types of hats can stay on but are not necessarily comfortable. The advantage of the Flexfit snapback is that it adapts to the size of the golfer's head so that it is very comfortable to wear during a long game of golf. Golfers can forget about the cap they are wearing and concentrate on their game.
Flexfit caps for golf fans
Golfers at the top of the world rankings have many fans who closely follow their progress on the PGA Tour. The custom-made snapback caps that golfers wear with their sponsor's brand can be purchased by fans. You can play golf in them, but also proudly wear their caps off the golf course.
