obviously none of you have watched any moto (motocross or supercross)
Rickie is an ex-dirtbiker and im guessing this is where he gets his ideas for gear
99% of the dudes that race look like a rainbow of somesort

IMO - i like it ( and his hats)
this sport needs it - im tired of sein the same ol green shirts and khaki pants and everybody dressing like they are 70
Poulter wears some pretty flashy gear too (not a fan of him though)

on RF's hats - you ever wer one of them before? They are SUPER comfy
I personally have 3 of them and one FLEXFIT puma hat as well
u know you've made it, when a company re-designs their brand around you (kinda like Ryan Moore's simple dress code etc.. and Scratch)

I am about as traditional as they come, and I wear assault hats (or painter caps, railroad conductor hats, etc., whatever you want to call them) and have for several years. The reason is comfort, but they still stay on like a golf or baseball hat in normal winds as well. The round tops give a little more room for air without looking like those "truckstop poke-up front" hats. I like them.

No, not a striped muffin top, but I've been told my white ones look like a train hat, or painter's cap. My Khaki ones are labelled as "assault caps" and I guess they are used in some military groups somewhere in the world. Mine are solid colors. Still like them, and they go through the dishwasher to clean up fairly often.

Is that his get up on day 4 now? That orange suit outfit? Its original but terrible. Poulter and Villegas dress out there but have class to it.

And yeah he is quarter japanese.

Too bad he didn't win, I was going for him.

One of the commentators today said he looked like a traffic cone with hair.

Hahaha, I heard that one. Made me laugh... I don't like any of his ridiculous outfits, but I guess thats what you get when you're sponsored by Puma, right? His orange get-up is really dumb looking, but I think he likes it with his spray tan. I saw him in person at an autograph signing here in CA, and his tan was so fake it was terrible.... I like Ricki Fowler though. I think he has a real future ahead of him, as long as he learns how to finish (which I don't know how to do either). His swing is so fast and his flexibility is amazing! I wish I was able to swing like that!

Why bash his style? He's being unique and there's nothing wrong with that. Puma doesn't pay him to dress in bright orange outfits, he dresses like that because that's his style. They pay him to wear the puma hat just like all the others on tour. I'm sure it wasn't PUMA's idea to be the first on tour to rock the flatbill hats, it was Rickie's.

Like I said, he's unique. Plus hes a socal dude...what do you expect?

On an unrelated note, has anyone ever heard that your swing tempo has a lot to do with your tempermant, personality and lifestyle?

Rickie has the fastest tempo on tour and I bet it's because of all that fast paced moto.

Rickie is a great golfer with loads of potential but his hat is just plain stupid. I'm glad he likes it because I'm pretty sure he's the only one. He just looks like clown with that flat bill, over sized thing on his head.

My mom decided to make a quip about him looking like an inmate today lol. I don't deny he's bringing something "fresh" to the tour, but IMO Poulter and Villegas bring more style/flair/class in terms of "fresh". That and someone like Ryan Moore who (until recently) chose to take no sponsors and just wore what he wanted :P

Rickie wears bright orange to represent Oklahoma State University (OSU) Orange Cowboys, it's on his bag as well

IMO he can wear whatever he wants, the kids got game

The title of this thread pretty much sums up my thoughts on his hat.

Rickie's wardrobe: Day 1: Day 2: Day 3: Day 4:

My father and uncle were with me today, and they said the same thing.

They are supposed to be "military style" hats. I'm not a fan.

The hat Rickie is wearing in the first pic is the millitary style cap like Ricky Barnes wears (Yohan Edfors has been wearing this style for at least a year on the European Tour) Ryna moor used to waer one of these when sponsored by Ping.

The second pic is the Hip Hop/motorcross/skate style big peaked cap, Ryan Moore now wears this style with the Scratch logo, he was the first to sport this on tour but a few youngsters are wearing these now, Dustin Johnson has a kinda normal cap with a hybrid bigger peak. IMO the caps are going backwards, as in they no longer have the curved peak but getting larger & flatter, just like Lee Travino et al...

I have no problem with the hat. Actually, if you don't mind the colors, what do you see?

Barely any advertising if you look past the Puma outline.

If you look at the old pictures of Nicklaus, Seve, there's barely any logos.

Most golfers now look like the Indy and Nascar vehicles.

At least Fowler's logos are a bit more subtle.

    • I looked it up. Sounds interesting.
    • The First Tee in your area may take them. Locations - First Tee  
    • Day 54: Set up a chipping/pitching area in my basement because we are having a F-ing Nor’Easter! Worked off a mat and off my putting mat which is a tighter lie.   I also think I’ve solved the temperature issue with club assembly. My basement is 55F,  so I set up a lamp to get the temp around 80 where the club heads are. I used my BBQ thermometer to measure the temp. I am such an enginerd! I had to re-epoxy my Titleist heads because they were starting to get loose.
    • HRV points toward recovery more than sleep from what I have seen. My sleep is always high but my recovery may or may not be. 101, nice! I was talking to a friend of mine and his is always high. He showed me a screenshot from yesterday and it was 115.  I made it a point to look at my strain this morning when I woke up but before I got moving around much. It was 0.0 as well so I believe you’re correct on hitting the heart rate threshold. I have just never looked at it that quickly. 
    • If you are 'old' you will surely be familiar with the pre 2019 definition of 'Lost Ball'. The new version says  Lost/1 – Ball May Not Be Declared Lost A player may not make a ball lost by a declaration. A ball is lost only when it has not been found within three minutes after the player or his or her caddie or partner begins to search for it. For example, a player searches for his or her ball for two minutes, declares it lost and walks back to play another ball. Before the player puts another ball in play, the original ball is found within the three-minute search time. Since the player may not declare his or her ball lost, the original ball remains in play.
