I had to do a double take when I saw a guy leaving the course last week wearing almost the exact same outfit (I think he had the orange pants too). He was at least younger than the fellow on the right, but no less ridiculous looking. Imagine how bad it would get if Ricky was in the hunt each week....

Where's their Monoline? Gotta have a Monoline if you're going to rock that. And it's gotta be the white with orange monoline and a white belt if you're gonna wear white shoes. If you're going all orange like that, you must wear the orange LE shoes.

Actually, this has two things going for it. 1. They are so rediculous that it is obvious meant to be funny, and more importantly, 2. They know how to wear a hat and have some standards that were not comprimised.

So people that wear flat billed hats have lower standards now? Where do people that wear bucket hats and old men that wear straw hats to the golf course fall? It may not be your style to wear a flat billed hat, but it's awfully judgmental to make the statement that they have lower standards. Do you even know where the flat bill originated?

Based on my experience in the Army where we had caps, and my opinion of those who wore made the effort to bend their caps and those that did not, I would say that yes, in my opinion those who wear flat, or even crooked billed caps so have lower standards than those who do not.

 

 

Where do people that wear bucket hats and old men that wear straw hats to the golf course fall?

Bucket hats and straw hats are different and were not included in the above statement, however I have a bucket hat, that I often wear, it is not really a bucket because it has a wider bill and shallower top, but I have it curled up on the sides like a cowboy hat. Another guy I play with wears one and he does not bend it at all, and I do not care. A third guy I play with has his bent up in the front, I have nicknamed him, Corporal Agarn, from F Troop. He has recently changed the style he bent it but the nickname seems to have stuck.

 

It may not be your style to wear a flat billed hat, but it's awfully judgmental to make the statement that they have lower standards.

Yes, it is, shame on me. I should find some place where I can voice my opinion.

 

Do you even know where the flat bill originated?

 

Well, several hundred years ago I would imagine. I know they came along before the modern shaped ball cap. But that was not what this thread was about, the origins of ball cap. It is my opinion that Rickie Fowler's cap and anyone else's who wears one looks stupid. Period.

 

If you wear one, well,.....my opinion still does not change.

Right, judgemental older person. Just like I thought. Glad you like to see the game not grow. Bucket hats are for the rain and straw hats are for the beach or the farm, and when the sides are knurled, they're for rednecks with straw in their mouth (see Kenny Chesney). They have no business on the golf course. See, someone else can be judgemental too.(Just common complaints I've seen about these types of hats, could care less personally). It's called fashion, and while it might not be your style, it's laughable to demean others choice in hats. I'd imagine you're that curmudgeon that gets mad when you see juniors on the course and range too and don't want the old boys club to be broken into by the next generation. And I have Monolines, and I bend the bills. Have several hats that were originally flat billed that I bent the bills on. I don't wear them flat, but I don't demean others choice in hats.

As a matter of fact, Saturday afternoon I played in the 1:00 group. They are called that because there is a 9:00 group and a 1:00 group every Saturday and Sunday. Often the same guys play at 9 and 1 o'clock, but the better players are definately in the afternoon group. In order to play, you must only be there and sign up. Also, be prepared to shoot less than a 85 or you will be a liablitiy to your team.

 

This week there were 15 of us and we had 5 people on three teams. The majority of the players were in their 30's and 40's but we had some in their 60's and four in their teens, and two women. The only concession made for age was that 60+ played from the men's member tees (white) (not the senior tees) the women played from the forward tees (women's tees), and everyone else played from the back tees.

 

This group does discriminate against hackers, which is why I do not played with them all the time. I have some friends that do not "qualify" to play with them, so I play with my "hacker" friends when they are there. This group divides into teams and instead of just you losing money for your poor play, your whole team loses money for your poor play. If you can not hold up your end, they do not want you.

 

And if you wear a hat we do not like, fine. But expect to hear a comment about it or two.

It truly amazes me how Fowler produces such hatred from the conservative types entirely based on his hair style and the types of clothes he wears. If you've ever heard the man talk, you should LOVE the guy. He's as well spoken and humble as any young player in the game of golf.

For the record I like Rickie Fowler. I just do not like the hats. I even like his clothes but I think twice before I wear a red shirt and black pants because I do not want people to think I am dressing like Tiger. While I go occasionally wear that it is almost never on Sunday anymore. I have a short that I see Steve Stricker wear a lot and I do wear it but no one has ever asked if I am dressed like him. :)

 

And I really do not care about hats. I was just messing with Rookie. Based on past exchanges with him I knew he would go ballistic if I took a hard stance against him.
