I've never heard of those before. I'm going to have to look into these because the courses here in Colorado are getting way too hot, even in early afternoon.

Thanks for posting these pictures. As I have rounded the corner to age 50, I've become more sensitive to the potential of contracting skin cancer and I have been looking for a hat with a brim around it. While I haven't liked what I've seen in the market place, these hats look a bit better than those I've seen. I'll look them up.

You're right. It's a cool hat. But I prefer one without a logo. Also, Norman's hat is black, a color which absorbs heat, even though it is vented. I prefer a lighter color which reflects heat.

I just posted the first image I found. I know they make a natural color and probably white.

Also the new ones dont have a big colorful Shark logo. I think they are silver or something.

Well, that's good to know. Very eighties. Now, if only those hats will make me look as rugged, tall and handsome as Greg Norman, I'll buy a dozen!

Those became very popular around here for a while after the (now ex-) football coach started wearing them. I still see a few out on the golf courses from time to time.

His was a white/off-white with the school logo on it. Kind of decent:

When I think of a hat, Stetson is the first name that pops into my head. Arguably the finest hats made today.

I've worn them for most of my life, and I even have my great-grandfather's from the 30's (it's weird, but he and I have the same sized head, he passed a couple months before I was born)

They offer several golf and outdoor hats now if you're not up for getting in touch with your cowboy roots. I'm leaning toward a new Airway for golfing and around other outside activities (been wearing a ballcap on the golfcourse). I'll keep my beat up old straw hat for work.

Wow, I didn't know that Stetson made golf hats ..I always wanted a "cowboy" Stetson but just never have the occasion to wear one..they are one of the best examples of "cool".

Holy sh%t!! Who knew Stetson had a $5,000 cowboy hat? I didnt at least. Ya I guess they do make quality products. Those golf specific hats are nice.

I was in Perdido Key this week with the family. I played golf, ate some seafood ( and some see food ) and did a bit of shopping with my wife. We went into a store in Orange Beach and there, in the center of the store, was a nice display of Tilley Hats. I tried on several and liked the Airflo model the best. There are a variety of models. Most advertise that they float, can tie on, repel rain, block UV rays , won't shrink, and come with some insurance against loss as well as a lifetime guarantee. It is washable. It even comes with an instruction manual ( for those goofy goobers from Bikini Bottom who just do not have sufficient reading material for the bathroom ). I chose the Airflo because the brim was not overly large, yet large enough to provide adequate coverage, and there is a mesh ring just under the top which provides the airflow . I bought it on Friday afternoon, and wore it today after we returned home.

I played eighteen holes this afternoon in it and I must say that it more than met my expectations, which is to say that I forgot, for the most part, that I had it on. The brim did not interfere with my swing ( would that something might improve it, though ). I really did not notice the vent, perhaps because it was so hot and and humid. I removed the hat about three times during the round to mop my face and head. At this moment, it has replaced my baseball type, conventional golf hats.

    • That looks nifty, but… it's only really going to be an option for awhile in some high-end places, I'm wagering. If it's a full range, you can of course see your ball flight. So the tracer itself is probably not that important, right? The points and games are another thing, kinda TopGolf-like.
    • That looks awesome! I hope that sooner or later all driving ranges will have that technology built into them.  Was it more expensive than a regular bucket of balls?
    • I didn't take it that way. I know the HGG quote, and that it's a way of saying "goodbye." That's not exactly "cool" though either: Mike tells you he's mad at you, I demonstrate that your impact conditions and backswing are worse, and you say "okay, goodbye." But yeah, I took it this way: That fits quite well since you keep talking about how you have to know and understand the whole system just to implement a piece, and about how your brain works that way, and so on. How I took the fish quote is pretty clear from the response, is it not? All that said, I apologize. I took it the wrong way. I reacted more strongly than I would have had I taken it the HGG way, and I'm sorry for that. Disagreement isn't intolerable at all. But you're not really disagreeing with anything, either… you're choosing to ignore things, and you seem to think that you're not being helped. You're wasting our time. Disagreement? At least there's discourse there. Ignoring? That's just a (small) slap in the face… Mike and I - and others - have given you a boatload of free advice. I can't speak for others, but I don't expect you to pay for anything, ever. When all else fails, play the victim card again? Anyone who has met @mvmac will tell you he's not quick to anger. So if you pissed him off, well, then more than likely you did something, and are not just some passive victim. P.S. You're likely getting better because you're hitting balls. You're learning how to make the flaws in your swing at least time themselves up right. You're learning to time your flip just right so that you can pick the ball off the ground without fatting or thinning it. You're learning how to sway your hips and drop your head back/early extend on the downswing so you can hit out a little bit despite being super steep (and you need a really closed stance to help you with that). You're getting better at making a flawed swing because you're repeating it often. You're lowering the ceiling on how good you can get each time you visit the range and don't practice properly, or practice the proper things. Your swing may actually be worse now than a week or two ago. We tried to help you - free, and by giving you much of our most valuable asset (our time) - and you instead pissed off one of the calmest people around and ignored the advice of many others, including me, who knows what I'm talking about. Then you chose to play the victim after a vague reference to fish, and took the easy out of saying "oh, you just don't like people who disagree." No, I don't like people who waste my time, but the solution on my end is very easy: I simply choose to stop wasting my time on them. I don't care if you disagree. I prefer it, really, so long as you're a worthy adversary. You? You don't stack up. We can't talk about some intricate part of the golf swing. Nor should you at this point, or possibly ever, because you're a golfer, not a golf instructor. That's all fine. But I can choose to stop giving you free advice, and spending my time doing it.  So if your goal is to have me ignore you from here on out, you've succeeded! :-) I'll spend my time helping those who appreciate it.
    • Did anyone make it to this?  I had some things come up and couldn't make it. Also, we should get a spring round get together going...
    • You misunderstand. Yes, of course he is one of the ATGs on the current list. What I am saying is that can change, not that it will, but it can. Like I said it is an ever expanding/changing list.
