Golf is a precision club and ball sport, where perfect vision is a must. Nothing blocks out the glaring rays of the sun without altering your vision or color perception like the brim of a hat. Golf hats serve double duty by keeping players cool on the open golf course. Today hats come in a variety of shapes, colors, and styles that fit the individual player. From traditional seagrass straw gamblers and fedoras to wacky plaid flat caps, hats are as much a fashion statement as a necessity on the golf course.
