Kirk Triplett Hat


Recommended Posts

I never wore the floppy big hats until a friend of mine talked me into it a couple of years ago. The 2 that I have are Pukka brand which one came from my home course and the other one came from a neighboring course. Now I have seen the Triplett hats on TV and wanted one but I thought what the heck. I basically took one of mine and spray starched the brim and ironed the heck out of it. Works good until it gets hot and humid and then it flops again. But then again around here the floppy hat Stenson type shades and cigar have became a trademark for me

I've got a hat that is very similar to that Ping hat that Triplett is wearing.  The only difference is the Ping logo is red instead of black.  It's my go-to during the middle of the day in the summer.

... I have loved soft brimmed boonie style hats ever since my dad used them in Viet Nam when he did 2 tours with Special Forces. He was awarded a Silver Star and at the ceremony gave me one of his hats and as a 5th grader, I wore it everywhere and until I finally lost it. He passed away 10 years ago and would be happy to see I still wear that same floppy style but in lighter colors with a wider brim. I don't like stiff brims so these floppy boonies work great in the Phoenix sun as long as the wind is around 10mph or less. Any stronger and I have to go to a baseball cap. Pretty rare for the wind top be less back in Chicago but when it is I always wear my floppy.

My Pukka hats have a detachable chin strap or cord strap would be a better description. If it is windy here I cinch it up and carry on. The strap does not bother me one iota I know some folks it does. I was always more or less a visor man then I got educated on skin cancers by a couple of friends of mine. And one knows you learn from your elders if you pay attention and most of the guys down here that play everyday wear some sort of wide brimmed hats

... Mine has a chin strap that I don't mind using either. But since it has a floppy brim, the wind can blow it down and it covers my eyes. Not good in the middle of a swing, chip or putt LOL!

Looking good Rick.  That one dosen't look like it would be too floppy in a wind.

They do pretty well in wind, best hats I’ve ever owned. Also bulletproof, hard to destroy them. I’m rough on hats.

How are they in the heat?  Looks like the dome is mesh/ventilated?

The one I’m wearing in the pic vents pretty good. It does have a piece inside so it’s not wide open. Another Tilly I have is vented better than this one.

This is probably slightly different but if Ping is a must this may fit the bill...  https://www.carlsgolfland.com/ping-boonie-hat    The site list it as currently out of stock so it may be impossible to get.

If that hat had the PING logo, it would be the bomb (or skookum in old school lingo).

Man I thought you had a tough mental game!! In that case just imagine the club hitting the ball. In my case I imagine it hitting somewhere on the face. Seriously I have not had that happen yet. Since you mentioned it that will more than likely happen the next round I play more than likely a 3 foot putt and I fan it

I have 2 of these, both white, L/XL. One with red lettering and one with black.  I agree with the Tour only comment as these have tags with product info but no price.

That’s a nice hat. I saw them at a local Golf Store price set in the $30 range. Was considering one as they had plenty but then the Virus hit and everything closed.

I second that. You don't want the bad skin stuff and especially on the ears or nose. Very painful procedure.
