Kirk Triplett Hat

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I like the PING logo hat Kirk has been sporting of late, but I'll be dang if I can find a source. The design of this hat is different than many soft wide brims and I think I could make it work.  I wish I could reach out to Kirk and ask him.  Perhaps they are specially made for him by PING?  I've seen him wear the white, tan, and black.

Maybe if we can get enough of us on here to request one, we could get PING to make some?!

Not sure if I would wear one, but I’ll cast a vote in favor for them to bring them to retail.

Did some searches,  seems to be a tour only item based on what they tell people when the contact Ping.   it is called a Boonie hat;   if you were more brand agnostic,  I found one with a Titleist logo.

One would think they would offer them to the open market.  I'm kind of surprised I cannot find it.  With growing emphasis on protecting our largest organ from the sun, it would seem a great market.  Almost as good would be this hat offered with the MGS logo 👍.

I've seen a couple "boonie" hats with other logos (even PING), but not the same shape.

Tilley makes a nice hat which serves this purpose. I have one. It is great. Packs well. Washable. Looks good.

Tilley are great hats and very similar but not the same as Triplets. I have 2 Tilleys original hats and 2 that are Tilley knockoffs.

Oddly enough I found the Tilley hats while looking for the “Triplett” hat. Still haven’t seen one in the wild.

I'm surprised that these hats aren't more popular in the US. My dermatologist says that the tops of the ears are a critical area since people often forget to put sunscreen on them. And since most golfers use baseball caps it makes for a common skin cancer area.

I never considered a hat of this style until we moved to FL and SWMBO kinda “suggested” I get one. Sun is on you 11 1/2 months of the year.

I use a a Tilley hemp hat. Love how it feels, but don’t like the floppy brim. Does anyone know it this one has a stiffer brim?

If you want a similar hat with a stiff brim, here’s your answer - brim is rock solid in front. I have one and it’s outstanding for golf, boating, and many other activities. Several styles, colors and sizes - I have a Sand Dune (light tan) Seahawk. Expensive but less than a Tilley.

I’ve seen them advertised and look good.

Interestingly I was watching the Bermuda Tour today and one of the caddies had a Kirk hat with a Valspar logo on it. Prior to this thread I didn't pay much attention to the different hats.

Joel Dahmen wear a similar hat.  He is a cancer survivor, and I believe he wears an Imperial hat.

Being somewhat, ahem, follicly challenged I almost always wear big hats. I had one from Columbia but it was too floppy and just looked messy. I use it for yard work now.

I ended up with one from Outdoor Research which works well, didn’t break the bank either.

Quick update on Kirk's hat.  While at a PING Demo yesterday, one of the fitters was sporting the black PING hat.  I asked if these were available for sale and he said no, just for employees and sponsored pros.  He said they get asked about them quite often and was not sure why they've not been offered to the public.  That seems kind of odd don't you think?  It's not often that a product, one that is already being made, is in demand and a company chooses not to offer them 🤔.
