watching Mahan tee off, i'm reminded of how stupid these pros look wearing those damn flat billed caps...

 

 

 

 

why am i so annoyed by something so seemingly trivial??  when did this trend start??  better question... when will it end...??

I'm not a fan....and since I don't like people who make very short forum posts I'll ramble on for a bit to make it look like I have more to say on this issue but really what else is there to say. Either you like them or you don't so.....yea, you just wasted 20 seconds reading this!!!

Would have liked a third option, "don't care", but given that wasn't an option I went "yay".  I don't really care what someone wears as long as it conforms to the rules of the club.

Somehow, Hunter manages to accentuate the ughness factor by quite a bit. Must be the shape of his head, he looks like a bucket.

Not a fan of the flat bill.  To me, unless you are a skater punk or do freestyle motocross; you shouldnt be trying to rock the flat bill.

Flat brim hats come from baseball, they keep the sun out of your eyes while not obscuring your vision. Perfect for golf, if you can pull off the look.

No the flat brim hats is a So Cal thing. Ricky Fowler is responsible for the "Cali" look.

 

Jesse James was one of the first to have those flat brim hats.

 

Oh and I can't stand them, they look stupid as hell. Even Jesse James, who thinks he's the coolest dude ever. Which we all know, anyone who cheats on Sandra Bullock must be a dumbass.

MLB baseball players have been wearing them since the 50's

I don't have an issue with the look... It's definitely common here in Socal.

Trevino and Nicklaus' hats were pretty flat billed too, yes? Just throwing that out there.

^^^ What he said. Doesn't matter to me what people want to wear golfing as long as its appropriate attire for a club. I think the worst dressed golfer I've ever seen is a guy wearing a wifebeater and cargo shorts that were 4 sizes too big.

Was a time you had to bend it to your preferred shape with your own hands. My grandfather was a trucker, all his caps were flat. Wore one right up to the day he died at 91. I remember my dad helping me bend the brims on my little league hats back in the 70's. Definitely not a new thing, more of a retro look than anything. No doubt a doofus like Beiber doesn't understand this but it is what it is. I like it a little in between, typically straighten it out a bit or I feel like I am wearing blinders.

Who cares? Not a big deal to me either way...........I own a flat brim cap but I ended up bending the bril to fit my dome. Like the poster above stated, took me back to little league days. But to each his own, it's your money if you wanna rock the flat brim, be my guest.
