The best golf hats

Hat are like candy, or, say, golf courses. Lots of options — hard to go wrong with any of them. But a good hat to wear on the golf course is essential. First off, you need to block out the sun. Not only for skin protection but to see that beautiful ball flight of yours. And then there’s that ever-important fashion impact. What goes well with your clothes? What looks good on you? What catches the eyes of your foursome? Or, on the other hand, what subtle-yet-effective hat flies under the radar? All good questions. Luckily, we got you covered.
