Here in England we generally deduct 10 pips from someones perceived IQ for a baseball cap (15 if they didn't even get it on straight). His hat is slightly worse as it does not even fit!!

rap, motorcross whatever ... not a fan.    When I played baseball, we took pride in forming a perfect curve in the brim ... it took time to get it right.     Pffffft on these flat brim hats ...

I like that hat and i think his style is great.I think the younger crowd likes it and the older guys usually dont like them. The game is getting younger and you will see it alot more.Dufner,Fowler,Marino,Barnes either wear the painter hats or the hats with the flat brim. I thought his green hat and green apperal he wore on sat at the Chevron was pretty sweet.I actually think a 40 year old on with that hat and colors would get laughed at anyways.The younger guys can getaway with it.I have always said if your going to wear those bright colors you better be hitting some good shots.

I think those hats are awesome.  I would wear a fitted on the golf course if i had some nice golf ones, and not just Blue Jays ones....side note, GO JAYS!

Lots of guys in the MLB keep their brims flat....and this is golf lol...where style is created.  And this is his style, there are way worse outfits out there.   Look at Sergio, he looks like he is the manager at Burger King, with his dark blue pants and orange shirts....ugly as Sh**

Says the guy golfing in bloomers - just kidding - golf created golf style by borrowing from hunting, then from cricket, lawn bowling, polo, and obviously lawn tennis. Then it borrowed from Mr. Furley then it appears a bit from the Doodle Bops and Popsicles, and now from baseball and hip hop. I'm all for bigger hats personally, since the little "doily with a brim" that guys like DLIII can pull of don't work for my coconut.

"more stupid"

I love Rickie's style. It makes him stand out and makes him original. It's not a bad look and is better than all the plain color shirts with khaki pants. That's just boring.

The younger audience loves it

If I could wear any clothing on Tour it would be Puma then Nike 2nd.

Matter of fact, I just ordered my 2nd Monoline (cyan/white) along with the Black/white i already have.

Also just ordered this shirt: http://www.budgetgolf.com/PUMA_Golf_Duo_Swing_Graphic_Polo.html

I wear baseball hats exclusively - because I think standard golf hats look stupid on me ( they don't fit properly ) - because my forehead resembles a full moon.

And if I wear one for an entire round - I get a crushing headache.

Touque head. When after a round of golf your hair hurts you might need a different style of hat.

I remembered another player who wear a shallow brimmed doily hat - Major Champion Stewart Cink. The slightest breeze and that think would be gone off my head - and good riddance!! Give me a Hunter Mahan style chapeau any day!!

I think his style is great, and I think he is great; a real breath of fresh air. (PS: It's a drag that so many older people routinely bash on the styles of younger people; can you say "creeping old fartism"?) (PPS: I'll be 60 years old this winter). !!!!Bravissimo Fowler!!!!!

Why even bring Tiger up in this thread?

It's okay not to like a player. I was just curious about your beef w/ the kid. I'm not even a constant on ST, and it's obvious to me.

I was only defending his stupid hat...........

I do like Rickie, I just think that he has been completely overrated and overexposed. There's plenty of other young golfers more deserving of the attention.

I'm also not sure why you think I have a "beef w/ the kid" and that it's obvious to you. I doubt I've posted about him more than 5 times on this forum.

    • Honestly, I am not worried about it.  I am not scarred of COVID.  I respect everyone's opinion. I work in hospitals from the smallest to the largest one's in the country.  I deal with infectious control to EVS.  From NYC to California during this pandemic.  I know how they feel about it from an internal point of view.   I was more concerned about my safety when I crossed the border in the 1990's to work in Tijuana then going into any hospital in this country today.  I have and still go into the most dangerous parts of any city in this country and have done so since the 1990's as well as foreign countries.  Nothing catches your attention faster then staring at an M60 Machine Gun pointed directly at the van you are in. COVID is a virus, it does not scare me.  I understand other people's fear of it and respect that.  There are a lot more deadly situations I can come into contact with that a mask and washing my hands frequently will not help. You seam to be a really nice guy.  Hopefully when this calms down and it will we can meet and play golf together.  I would really enjoy that.
    • This shaft seems pretty nice.  I took a flyer on it and got the SF505 (I swing 100-105MPH).  It came in last night and I took it to the range this morning.  I saw on a couple sites people mentioning there was a learning curve and it was true.  I tried using my same swing I put on my Hzrdus green and the ball just took off to the right.   10-20 swings later I was able to figure it out and was amazed at the results.  I realized I needed to just swing smoother and slower and it worked perfectly.  Feels so weird swinging this slow and the ball going farther.  I was on the range so no comparison other that was was visible to the naked eye.  The ball had so much more pop and was flying maybe 10 yards farther.  The consistency was the craziest part as they were ropes directly where I aimed.  Taking it on the course tomorrow so curious to see how accurate on the course it is as well as if I'm hitting from new areas because of the added length.
    • I made it up. But let's see… For me to contract COVID-19 by touching the handle of a gas pump twice: The handle would have had to have been touched by an infected person within the past few hours. There were 32 gas pumps and I was the only car at the station, at about 8:45am. That person would have basically had to slobber on the handle to get anywhere near enough viral load onto the handle. I'm unaware of a handle-of-gas-pump-licking fetish, but maybe it exists. I would have had to get virtually all of that viral load on my hand in a few seconds. I would have then had a HUGE failure of my sanitizer to do ANYTHING to remove the virus from my hands. I would have then had to lick my hand or something to get all of the virus that remained. 0.0001% was probably high. If you wanted to try to figure out the actual number, you'd have to start here: what % of the population currently has COVID-19 and is unaware and out and about? It's not like that number is even 5%.
    • I don't buy that there's only a 0.0001% risk.  Where did that number come from?  I leave my home a lot... groceries, outdoor cocktails (downwind and 10 feet from friends), golf course every day, walks, bicycle rides, a take out burrito today from Casa que Pasa and for gas.  All calculated risks.  It's sort of fun to know... that the next time you reach for the gas pump handle you'll think of good ol' DMM.
