Summer Golf Hat


Recommended Posts

 

Summertime can be brutal on the skin, especially facial areas. I finally broke down and purchased a couple summer hats to play golf in to keep the sun off my head and out of my eyes. It is sort of strange, any hat besides the common golf hat just doesn't seem to be accepted well, or imo, look like it fits in well. Although, I got to the point where I don't care as much how it looks as much as I care about keeping the sun off my vulnerable areas and out of my eyes. The bucket shown below is a bit hot for the summer, but is great for early and late summer days to keep the sun out of my eyes. I feel a bit of a standout with it on but oh well. The hat below the bucket is an Aussie Breezer Light hat for the middle of the summer, as it is not as hot as the bucket but keeps the sun off my face/neck areas very well. I am wondering what others do for a hat in the summertime?

I have this Tilley. The LTM5 has a slightly less wide brim than the 6. They also have a gold specific hat too. Very well made.

Can't decide on a style? This is our best-selling AIRFLO® Hat so we figure we must be onto something.

This is the hat I purchased to go along with my two others. Main reason I purchased this one is that it fold up nicely and can be stored in a side pocket of my golf bag. Check out the video online:

I like hates that are not adjustable, and that are deeper. I just wear a normal hat. 

I have a few UA hats and like them.

No question, 'baseball style' golf hats look the best,  but are not very good at blocking out the sun from the face/neck area. I suppose those who have had bouts of skin cancer don't give to much concern about appearance compared to sun blockage.

Or, here’s a thought.  Sunblock.  🙂

Yes, great idea! I do use sunblock all the time , but I sure hate slopping it on getting it on your hands and sometimes in your eyes. I still use it all the time and will even though I have a larger hat on, but a hat also keeps the Sun off your skin to keep your cooler as well. It's like hiding under an umbrella in the midday Sun.

Spray sunblock.  SPF 50 stays in my bag.

No muss, no fuss.

This is what I used this last summer, and it does a nice job blocking the sun, but I still get burnt a bit, and also the sun's heat takes it's comfort toll as well. A large brim hat helps keep you cool and the sun out of your eyes. The combo of sun block and large brim hat work the best. What I find amazing is that more PGA golfers don't wear large brimmed hats, maybe because they are younger and feel invincible? Nothing like skin cancer to quickly change one's mind.

Maybe Jim Colbert made everyone realize how ridiculous you can look wearing one...?  😁

I don't see him as looking ridiculous, but I suppose many do. The word 'vanity' comes to mind.

    • FFS. You think scientists are all huddled in some town in North Dakota hiding evidence from the world. We have plenty of clues about the efficacy of the vaccines. And let’s face it, you wouldn’t believe this top secret study if it didn’t fit your narrative anyway.
    • Went with Tiger. In grand scheme of things would be the memorable. Now who are these 'Raiders' tho?? 😜
    • My 3 personal favorite arguments against being vaccinated are:   1 - (I saw this one just the other day) "I don't put anything in my body until I understand all of the long term effects." .... Takes a huge sip of Diet Coke.  2 - "I'm not getting vaccinated because I don't want to be told what to do." ... Okay, so you don't stop at red lights?  3 - "I think the government is using this whole thing as an excuse to plant a transmitter inside me. ... Oh shit, I gotta go charge my phone." 
    • Nice to hear some words from himself rather than someone else. He seems to have come out of a pretty bad accident relatively lucky, all things considered. When was the last time he played full time? 😛 The occasional major, his own tournaments and maybe some other special tournaments then, at best. With slim chances of the good old «double U».
    • Absolutely.   I agree that it doesn't follow modern styles as far as pacing, but I would argue that that is a good thing. People have become far to used to constant over-sensatory movies, where action is the only thing that matters. A good story is far more interesting to me. I am 70% through the first 6 Dune books according to my kindle (start of book 5), and I thought the movie should have been less fast. There are plenty of things that were added in (not in the book) that could have been replaced with even better story telling (things from the book). I am super excited that they green lit part 2, and hopefully we will get even more. Even more will probably just be Messiah, because after that things get unexplainable in movie form. My only complaint about the movie was the casting of Duncan (Mamoa), as he we just the "bro dude relatable comic relief". I thought taking away Gurney's good laughable moments and giving them to Idaho was a disservice to all Dune fans. I wasn't impressed with Mamoa, though he was just doing what was asked of him, but the switch of character roles was like nails on the chalkboard to me. I'd also give it an eagle, but it could have been an albatross by staying truer to the source material.
