Why do amateur golfers wear brand name logo hats like compensated endorsed pro's?

I understand the Amish are coming out with an exceptionally plain line of golf clothing.

What is the difference between wearing a Titleist hat when playing golf to wearing an A's hat to a baseball game? If my favorite player is Tiger Woods, wouldn't you expect me to wear a Nike TW hat?

Possibly because they like them?  Golfers wear golf-ish stuff when they golf.  Where's the mystery in that?

I heard they even play golf every once and a while...



Charlie Sheen is Tiger Woods winning

LOL, that's a difference in age. When I grew up, "raised playing baseball" meant curved bills. In fact, most of the baseball guys I know (including HS kids, to be honest) wear curved-brim hats in baseball.

I cannot tell a lie...I tend to be a brand loyalty type of guy, LOL. I play a lot of softball and pretty much stick to Combat gear exclusively...mostly because I like the products and love the customer service.

Then take all of the brand names out of your signature. Just sayin...

Maybe it's just me but if i'm buying my own clubs/balls etc... then i'm not going to ***** myself out and wear some company logos.  In fact if anyone knows where I can get good quality hats that are blank and similar to the ones they sell with brand logos in pro-shops I might consider having a few made with stuff like 'not for sale' or 'read me' or 'corp golf hats suck' or something.  :)

The signatures here aren't for "promotion." They're so others know who's playing what because that information is helpful if, say, you have Club X and I'm interested in getting Club X but want to know what you think of it, for example.

Was just a joke. Maybe a smiley would have helped, lol.

Hahah you're right about that, i remember my dad used to get on me sometimes for straightening  out my brims, and he grew up playing baseball.  Guess its an age and location thing.

The same as if im wearing a branded baseball cap with funky colours that you like, but dont get chance to speak to me and find out what it is?, but if it has a nike logo on it, on quick google and BHAM! got your hat..........

Promotion to me, is an actualy advert, explaining it, showing what it does. a badge, sticker, logo is merely the makers trademark to identify who sold/designed it

This thread seems to have been started to get a certain hat mention out there... We all promote logo's, but I think there is a big difference in wearing a titleist hat and walking around with a banner that mentions all the titleist line of golf balls.

And sure some mention what clubs they play in their signature, but if you look real close you will see a trademark logo by the big fancy bold words. There is absolutely no difference in wearing a titleist hat and filling up your signature with logos... You can put what clubs you play without all the unnecessary flair.

Some people buy hats with a logo on it because it looks nice? When i buy a hat, i buy one that looks nice... i'm not trying to advertise and i'm not expecting to get paid for wearing a hat. lol

You could say the same thing about clubs, bags, clothing, everything. Though I don't see the point really, nor why this thread has gotten so large. :-\

I agree, I don't typically consider buying hats from golf companies that I don't game equipment from but I also don't buy hats just because I own gear from the company either.  If they look good, I buy them and don't consider it as advertising for them.

    • How? 🙂 Day 14 – Moving or Touching Loose Impediments or Touching Sand in a Bunker
    • If I am understanding this correctly, I've been able to, for over two and a half years now, move stones in bunkers, as long as doing so doesn't move my ball, same as I can do on the fairway or in the rough?   I either missed this entirely or forgot about it.   
    • It was explained to me that they wanted people to remove stones, but not to give them so much freedom that they  could just go messing about willy nilly and moving their ball. So, what they came up with did that.
    • Previously the LR caused a stone to be treated like a MO in all respects. Now the rule doesn't.  Why not?  Why shouldn't the Rule simply deem a stone in a bunker as either a LI or treat it by Rule as one? A safety conscious player could incur a penalty for being safe about a stone but not a walnut.
