I usually like a ball cap but I really need to start wearing something with better sun protection.

I have a few straw fedoras that I prefer to wear.  My home course is always windy so I have been forced to wear a ball cap (less likely to fly off).  For this I have gone to runners caps.  They are light weight, breathable, washable and made to stuff in a pocket as the brim is flexible.  Leave one in my bag and pull out when needed.

Although I buy several new hats each season,  I still have a souvenir straw golf hat from the early 90's... Quick Silver Classic

Aussie Chiller for me.  This one is made to be dunked in water then back on your head for cooling during those real hot days.

Actually yes, I had one of these or similar a few years ago. The soaker part is great in hot weather.

Melin makes a great golf hat. Expensive, but if you live in the sweltering heat, it’s worth a look!

I've had numerous skin cancers removed (Squamous Cell Carcinoma - thankfully not Melanoma),

and gave up on baseball caps long ago. Over the last several years I have tried many hats, and have found a few that I really like:

The Shelta Seahawk it great. I also like the Mineola Hat Store bucket hat (Amazon). I have a Stetson bucket hat being delivered today.

I still use a 50 SPF sun screen (Ocean Potion) on the neck, face, ears, and arms, and sometimes wear the long sleeve SPF 30 fishing shirts. 

I will not give up golf.

Careful w that skin cancer. The brim hat is my choice over the ball cap for that reason.

Picked up this hat last year to use while fly fishing and may have to re-purpose it and use on the golf course, too. Mine is a slightly different style and the one online appears different than what is in the store this year. Just providing a source for those interested.

I got this one from Amazon last month for working in the yard.  The brim is a little large for golf, but great doing yard work.

Amen.  People always say that they dont like bucket hats because they dont look cool.  You know what else isnt cool?  Skin cancer.  Im 40 years old now, so Im past the point in my life where I worry about what other people think is cool.

As someone who is a redhead, who used to pretty much live in tank tops and shorts (and has the sun damage marks on his shoulders to prove it) and who hasnt been very good to his skin sometimes over the past 40 years; Im probably more aware of it than most.

Welcome to getting older. I never knew how common skin cancers were and the type - from Basel to Melanoma. Between my wife and myself, after numerous procedures we're now authorities. I just shake my head when I see the people sitting around the pool getting 'tanned' if they only knew what was in their future!

I am constantly riding my young female coworkers about the way they let themselves cook in the sun. I call one girl “ ms. Melanoma”. Doesn’t scare her. Know what does? When I come in after seeing my dermatologist and I pull the dressings off. I grew up in Florida and ignored the warnings to wear sunscreen, hate, etc. and now I’m paying for it. I have at least 5 places my dermatologist needs to check but I cant get in to see her due to covid-19. She gets so excited when she sees me  

I don’t care if I look silly, the bucket hats are the way to go for me.
