You have a tee time at your favorite course. You check the weather and it‘s going to be a beautiful sunny day.
This leaves you with one decision left to make. Which of your golf hats are you going to wear? There are plenty of options. A “baseball” hat, a bucket hat, or maybe a golf visor.
Golf visors started to show up on the PGA tour in the 70s and became popular again in the 90s. This style of golf hat disappeared for a little while but is now making a solid comeback. The golf visor has started to show up again at driving ranges, par 3 courses, and even around town. It might be the new flair your look needs. A relatively inexpensive piece of golf gear to add to your collection. Time to let your hair flow in the breeze!
Pros & Cons:
- A golf visor does a great job of protecting your face from the sun. A large-brim golf visor will provide more face protection than your standard golf hat.
- A golf visor is lighter than your standard golf hat. Since there are no tops, hot air can escape and you can feel the breeze.
- Show off your beautiful locks! With a golf visor, your hair won’t be smashed down. It can flow in the afternoon breeze.
- A burned scalp is no fun. If your hair is thin you need to apply sunscreen to your head or wearing a golf visor can become painful.
- You may not have the correct head shape for a golf visor. It’s not your fault! Golf visors look great on some golfers, but terrible on others. Try it on in front of the mirror to decide which category you are in. The visor may not be the best golf hat for you.
Choosing The Right One!
What do you need to consider when shopping for a golf visor?
Similar to your standard hat, golf visors can be made from various materials. The most common are Polyester, Nylon, Cotton, Wool, and Linen. You may even come across one that is made of plastic, but we don’t recommend you go this route.
Separating one golf visor from another often comes down to brim size. There are two factors you should consider. First, the larger the brim, the more sun protection the hat will provide for your face. Second, the size of the brim will drastically change how it looks when you wear it. Make sure you’re comfortable with both the sun protection level and how it looks on.
Most golf visors have adjustable clasps or Velcro's in the back, so the size of your head shouldn’t be too much of a problem. That doesn’t mean they all feel the same on your head. Wearing a golf visor will feel different than a normal golf hat.
Okay yes, you want a golf visor that’s functional, but let’s be honest, it’s all about the style! You want to look good on the course and the right golf visor can be the perfect touch for your favorite golf outfit.
