Not my style... properly worn golf hats are for the golf course or range.

Wait, [i]properly [/i]worn[i]? [/i]See that's a whole different animal right there. That I do not do. I will only wear a golf hat to the grocery store improperly and I feel good about it.

Seriously? So there is concern about whether you should wear a golf logo hat when not playing golf? I thought we were supposed to be adults here. Wear the freaking hat!

I'll tell you whats an even bigger concern. Is it ok to get decked out in your golf gear..white belt included..for a trip to Golf Galaxy?

Ridiculous....

+1!

I prefer the mesh-backed, or "trucker" style hats. Do I have to be a truck driver to wear it? Do you have to play for the Yankees to wear a Yankees hat? Can I wear my Carnoustie hat in America?

Aren't these really BASEBALL-style hats, anyway? Are we really allowed to be wearing them for golf, even?

Wow.

I don't think it makes much sense for folks to wear a hockey jersey to a baseball game... But, companies put their logo on hats all the time. And the hats aren't golf-specific. So... Am I missing something here?

Who cares bro? I throw on my Titleist / FJ / ProV hat from time to time when I dont feel like doing my hair. I dont typically wear hats so thats what I have on hand

It's not that people are wrong or right about you man, it's that they are giving you crap in the first place.

If someone, as stated above, called me a hack for wearing a freaking golf hat off the course, I would laugh in their face and gladly challenge them to 18 holes as soon as possible.

I am a ping guy....so the only thing annoying about wearing ping apparel among the general public is when somone asks me where my pong hat is....I must hear that a few times a year. Other than that, golf hats are really all I ever wear (when I wear a hat).

I don't really care but the hat should come off in a restaurant, theater, some one's house or most obviously, a church.

I wear mine out daily and it isn't even tour issue. I promise the hat pictures will cease since it is becoming trite. No more, no more monoline, I promise.

The only people I see wearying their hats, gear and such off the course are typically hacks...

And someone who wears his hat in public would like to clean your wallet for you anytime... Since I'm such a hack you should have no trouble giving me 5 a side

If you dont have this-----> [attachment=1072157:brandel.jpg]







You can prevent from having to look like this-----> [attachment=1072159:furyk1.jpg]







And turn it into this------>[attachment=1072161:furyk2.jpg]





I actually live in a ball cap....C'mon its a ball cap that happens to have golf OEM name on it, wear it when its appropriate and for me thats 90% of the time.

This is why I only stop in here about every three months. I'm a walking fahion fauxpax. The golf police should be breaking down my door.

I pretty much only own golf hats and since I wear hats most of the time.. Well... You can guess the rest. The only time anyone has ever said anything to me is when I used to wear an old blue Cobra hat.. I've had a few guys ask me "do you own one?" Thinking it was an AC Cobra hat. I stopped wearing it just so I wouldn't have to explain that it's a golf hat.

I never even realized someone would notice or care that I have a golf hat on. I wonder what people think when I have my golf hat and golf pullover on. Even worse I'm usually wearing my most comfy shoes... White and blue Ecco tennies/golf.. Hopefully my cargo shorts balance it out so I don't look like a total poser. :blush:

Unfortunately...in my exp, it always plays out, weather you guys like it or not. I've never seen scratch/good players, at least the ones I've known...and that's quite a few, dressing like golfers off the course.

I'll give you 5 a side, no prob, assuming you're a double digit handicap, cause if you're not then why on earth you'd post a rebuttal in defense of hacks is beyond me, as my comment never pertained to you in the first place. If I loose, I'll pay up...shake your hand and congratulate you with a pitcher on me. I don't know where "next to heater" is, but if you're ever in San Diego PM me. Bring your "A" game brother....

I wear a golf hat off the course in the sense that I keep the New Era hat I wear during the round on until I get home, the only difference being that I turn the hat backwards.
Personally, I wouldn't wear a tour hat outside the course. This is not a knock on those who do, I generally don't wear a hat outside, and if I do, I'm wearing chill clothing and the New Era hats I own look/fit so much better.

Well, I think part of the disagreement here is semantics, you're saying "dressing like golfers off the course", while the thread is "tour hats off the course". I think there is a huge difference between those two scenarios. Just wearing a golf hat to me doesn't conotate dressing like a golfer. If I'm doing a project at home, wearing old shorts and a tee shirt and have to run out to the Home Depot, I'll probably throw on a cap, and since almost all my caps are golf ones....but I don't think that is dressing like a golfer.

I also know many good players, and the thing I've noticed is much like myself, if they're out around town and are wearing a hat, it's probably a golf hat, probably because that's what most of their hats are.

Titleist hats (the New Era mesh) are just about the only hats I ever buy (I have about 15 in all different colors) and therefore about the only ones I ever wear. I love the hat....it is very comfy and looks great imo.

I must be a super hack.

You bought 15 colors of the same hat?.....um....yah....

In my experience, it always plays out... Guys who associate tour hats off-the-course with hacks can't spell.

I've never seen 15 different color combinations of the New Era Titleist hats?!?
as long as you like it, it's all that matters. having 15 of these is no different to having 15 New Era hats in different colors with different team logos...
although it does make you a bit of a golf fanatic :P who isn't though...
