Golf Hat Help

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Problem: I live in Houston and needless to say it gets hot and humid. With the golf hats I have (standard issue Taylormade or similar) the bill gets so wet that it starts to drip as I am over a shot or putt. This is of course very distracting. The best I can do is take my hat off after every shot and wipe my head and then eventually start squeezing the bill in a towel to get the excess moisture out. Not exactly something I always remember to do and it can be a pain. (Maybe two hats is a better option)

 

Does anyone know of a hat that addresses this issue? I don't know exactly what I am looking for here as far as a solution but I was just wondering if anyone had come up with something. I've done searches but anything with "golf" and "hat" in it is just a barrage of resellers so I just thought I would cloud source a little.

 

Thanks!

Do you ride or carry?  

 

If you ride, I'd get a few extra towels and place them into a cooler with ice.  And then put them on your head in between shots - removing your hat - while you are driving to your next shot.  This will help cool your body - and reduce the amount that you are sweating.  

 

Then have a dry towel to wipe down with before you put your hat back on.  This should help reduce the amount of sweat that you are transferring into your hat!! 

 

 

If this tip doesn't work... Move.  Houston is too *#$&ing hot - AND HUMID to be playing golf!!! a3_biggrin.gif

Have you tried moisture wicking hats?  I use the Mizuno hat and I sweat a ton.

LOL. I can't argue with you on your last point. The plus side is year round golf f1_cool.gif

 

Your cooler idea is obviously the logical and smart route. The problem is I am lazy and don't want to do all that. Well maybe not lazy but its just on the course I am focused on other things and often forget even the most logical things (I've gone an entire round without drinking any water...in Houston...in the summer!) 

 

Maybe I could scotch guard all the bills of my hats. That might make it worse though. Two hats might be the best. Wear one until its soaked and then hang it on the cart to dry and wear the other one for a while.

I have not. I wonder if TaylorMade makes any (I'll go look). I have all TM stuff and while I am not advertising it would be nice to stay consistent (just in case they want to sign me b2_tongue.gif)

You might want to check this out: Halo Headbands. They are sweat bands that you wear under your hat.

I started wearing Under Armour golf hats and I have had zero sweat issues in fact they don't even get sweat lines.

I have the same problem.  I judge the temperature by how many hats I bring.  If it is a three hat day it is how and humid.  Buy unstructured hats, most of them can be washed.

I always bring a spare cap, few spare gloves, as well as spare golf shoes. Even keep s[pare pants and shirt in my locker at the club.

Not sure if TaylorMade has a similar hat but adidas does, I have a couple of them.  I also have some adidas hats that are actually made for the running crowd, they seem to be much better at wicking away moisture than a traditional cotton golf hat.  Nike also has some of these more high tech hats.
