Best Golf Hat 🤠

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. 

The old adage "pay me now or pay me later" applies. You can buy and use sunscreen and UV protected clothing now or you can help pay for your dermatologist's boat later.

Squamous is a real thing, it will kill you graveyard dead.
I never heard of it until my Dad was diagnosed with it. Wasn’t a good time.

There is one person in each generation in my family that is redheaded, fair-skinned, and prone to burning.

My grandfather worked in the sun his whole life, and he got to make MONTHLY visits to the dermatologist as a result.

My mother was much more careful, but it still got her. She has now had two separate surgeries for a Squamous cell carcinoma that metastasized into her Parotid Gland (the largest of the Salivary glands) and a round of radiation. In the second surgery they had to take out the facial nerve, so she looks like she had a stoke. No control of right side of face.

Now I'm next, followed by my daughter. You better believe I'm wearing a good hat and using sunscreen, but that hasn't always been the case. I used to hate both, so I too will pay the price.

My daughter has watched all this and I hope she has learned something, but my co-workers have also seen all this happen and heard me talk about it and see the holes and scars on me and they still cook themselves.

Friends, I know you love this game as much as I do or you wouldn't be watching this forum and reading my drivel, but please please take care of yourselves. Hats on and sunscreen on.

I am also a Histologist: I am the guy that receives your skin cancers and cuts them up and preps them for the Pathologist to make his diagnosis. If you don'e take car of yourselves we will be happy to bill you for our services.

When my Dad was being moved from Yale New Haven Hospice the Docs rounded you our daughters and me and told us we have the same fair skin problem and take precautions.
Our daughters listened good and they make sure the Gkids are well protected.

I’ve never understood the open weave hats like some in this thread, but I’m trying to protect my head, ears, neck from the sun when I wear a hat.

I used to be a Tilley advocate, and any wide brimmed hat is good for golf when it’s calm. But when the wind is up, a floppy brim is a problem. I bought a Shelta Hat for boating, now it’s the only hat I wear for boating or golf - because of the no-flop brim. Comes in several styles and colors. Cheaper than a Tilley. https://www.sheltahats.com

I am a fan of the Shelta Seahawk, which is my go to golf/outdoors hat. very comfortable and provides good protection. also have two smaller hats for short trips outside. this is the one!

I got one of these. I put a Ping patch on it to give it a little more cred. And I cut off the dork cord. I like it a lot.

I have a full head of hair, so my only wish is that it had even more venting.

Black Clover hands down. Comfortable, can get in almost any color combo to match you attire.
Only con I've had is when ordering directly from them. Had to wait a bit. I've purchased many from Ebay.Screenshot_20200523-111235_Samsung%20Internet.jpegScreenshot_20200523-111206_Samsung%20Internet.jpegScreenshot_20200523-111151_Samsung%20Internet.jpegScreenshot_20200523-111133_Samsung%20Internet.jpegScreenshot_20200523-111114_Samsung%20Internet.jpeg

The cord on Shelta hats is removable (see graphic post #45), so you can take it off or on as needed. No need to cut it off.

I had ordered a second Melin brand hat, and there was a mix-up. Within two days I had the correct hat, and then yesterday I received a box from them. 2 new hats, a small bag, and a hand written note from their Marketing Manager, Cameron, apologizing, and offering 2 more hats just for the mess-up.
They didn’t have to do that. Cameron also sent me a 40% coupon code to my email for future use in a purchase.
When folks “get it”, it’s worthy of sharing!
Melin hats.

Digging my new PING Floater hat.

Floppy rope hat. Wife says I look like a hipster. My response was the international “you’re number one” sign, but over just one....

Whoops.

It’s the birthday hat from mom.

I will say Rick. I’m seriously considering a PING Greens Keeper hat.
