Straw Sun Hats that Make a Statement on the Golf Course

Play Golf In Comfort and Style Wearing a Straw Sun Hat 

The game of golf has come a long way from the days of hitting a pebble around a natural course of sand dunes, rabbit runs and tracks with a stick off the eastern coast of Scotland. In fact, it’s become an avenue for fashion in the U.S. with its popularity peaking in the 1920s as a spectator sport. Players, male and female, have sported their favoriter collared or polo-style shirts, lightweight pants or skorts, two-tone shoes, and most importantly, their sun protective headwear. Although the greens have seen everything from visors to athletic brand ball caps and cowboy hats there is one hat style that famous golfers Sam Snead, Greg “The Shark” Norman, and even Tiger Woods agree on. It’s the straw sun hat and there are plenty of reasons why!
