Michael Block’s RAW hat? Here’s how to buy one before they sell out (again)

Here's how to pick up the RAW hat Michael Block wore at the PGA Championship.


Michael Block was “just a club pro from a public course in Cali,” as he put it, when one of his “last bucket-list dreams” came true after he qualified to play the PGA Championship at Oak Hill and became the only club professional to make the cut, eventually tying for 15th.

Block quickly became a media darling and folk hero during the tournament with his candid interviews and strong play, which resulted in the best finish by a club pro at the PGA Championship since 1986. Fans took note not only of Block’s stellar form but also of one his accessories: a white hat with RAW emblazoned across the front it, a promo for the “Raw Face Technology” in TaylorMade’s Milled Grind 2 wedges.

Block wasn’t wearing the RAW hat in the final round, but when his hole-in-one on Sunday set the internet ablaze, demand for the hat soared, suddenly making it a hard-to-find commodity. But if you’ve been in pursuit of one yourself, you’re in luck!

TaylorMade was quick to get this statement hat back in stock, and now you can pick up your very own today.

I’d recommend you snag one — this may be a valuable collector’s item one day with a super-cool back story. But, hurry, who knows how many are left!

Styled onto a low-crown performance snapback, the RAW embroidering is a shout-out to the Raw Face Technology that powers Milled Grind 3 wedges.

TaylorMade Raw and Milled Wedges

Want some matching wedges to go with your headwear? TaylorMade’s RAW line is especially cool because the wedges are un-plated and designed to rust, “giving them the worn, rustic look preferred by many of our top Tour athletes,” TaylorMade says.

You can customize your own set of TaylorMade Milled Grind 3 Custom Wedges at Fairway Jockey.

Several aspects of customization are available, including the colors of the club itself (black or chrome), lofts (56 to 60 degrees), custom shafts, grips and so much more.

Wedge technology has evolved. The new Milled Grind 3 features RAW Face Micro-Ribs, engineered for added face texture to deliver spin around the greens and added precision on partial shots.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a good deal and a great wedge, TaylorMade’s original Hi-Toe Raw Wedge is on sale for only $130 at TaylorMade.com right now.
