Here are some of the best golf caps

Best Golf Caps

Getting one of the best golf hats for you, your game, and the time of year is important and one of the most popular and versatile hat designs is the cap. Indeed there is a reason all the professionals wear them rather than bucket hats, trilby’s or anything else.

Besides offering protection from the sun, a cap offers you the chance to make a fashion statement and complement your look on the course. Most also offer technologies like moisture wicking fabric to keep you sweat free and comfortable.

Additionally, although many golfers prefer a classic golf cap, modern tour pros are mixing it up and making us question whether we should be more bold. Rickie Fowler and Brooks Koepka are two individuals who regularly choose the ‘stand out from the crowd’ design so why can’t you?

Bearing all of this mind, here are some of the best golf caps out there.

Additionally be sure to check out some of our other golf guides as well – such as the best golf beanies, best golf tops or best golf waterproofs.
