  • Tee Off with the Season's Hottest Golf Hats.

    Focus, practice, and your lucky golf hat.

     

    sunset-787826_640

    Golf is a magical game indeed. You round up a group of your friends, together meet out at a place verdant and meticulously manicured, and proceed to spend the rest of the day launching a little white ball into the blue vastness of a (hopefully) sunny sky. Now that the weather is warm and inviting, there is little excuse to stay away from your local country club. But fair warning before you hit the fairway, most courses require that you wear appropriate clothes, and the sport of golf has its own honored culture of cool. As a matter of decorum and practicality, no golf outfit is complete without a stylish headpiece to top it all off.

     

    Let’s take a look at some golf-sheik that’s trending:

    Mesh Golf Cap or Visor

    One of the most common hats to see out on the course is unsurprisingly a practical American classic. A cap is durable, keeps your eyes well shaded for your stroke, and comes in a variety of fashionable colors. Sometimes called  “trucker hats”, our golf caps are made of mesh in the back that allows your sweat to evaporate and keep you cool. Or, if you want to take a minimalist approach to fashion, a visor lets you catch every whiff of gentle summer breeze.

    Microfiber Hats

    Golf is more fun when you can do it in comfort, and our selection of golf hats can help you achieve a high level of that comfort. Microfiber is a wonderful synthetic material designed to absorb and dissipate sweat from off of the wearer’s skin. What could be better for a sweltering 18 wholes than a dry forehead? Ok, maybe a cold six-pack, but we can only help with the sweat part. There are a variety of different  hats made from this material, so you can stay cool without sacrificing your particular style.

    Bucket Hats

    Also called a 'fisherman's hat', these rugged and stylish pieces are usually made from heavier material such as cotton to provide increased protection from the elements. The bucket's 360 degrees of shade will help you escape the scorch of 18 holes, and are great for times you want to play through a random summer shower.

    UV block / Neck flap Hats

    If you are a fair skinned individual, it really pays to be completely protected from the sun's harmful UV rays. We have a selection of hats specifically designed to keep the sunburn to a minimum, while allowing you to enjoy your golf game in style and safety. These are the ultimate in practical protection from the heat!

    To play golf is to take time for yourself, to put aside all your cares and worries and instead spend the day savoring the sweetness of grass, sky and sun. So grab a cold beer and press the golf cart pedal down- but make sure to hold on to your hat as you fly from green to green!

    2014 World Cup Brackets

    88_WC_BRACKET2

    32 teams enter, and only one leaves as the World Champion. Legends are made while billions watch. The World Cup is the largest sporting event aside from the Olympics. I wish all 32 teams the best of luck in the coming weeks.

     

    2Home Sweet Home

    Home field advantage comes into play in every sport, from Football and Baseball, to Hockey, and Soccer. But does the home field advantage really come into play during the World Cup? Research has shown that the host country of the World Cup actually has a sizable advantage during the tournament. A recent report produced by Goldman Sachs found that the home field advantage added 0.4 goals per game. In a sport where scores hover around 1-0 and 2-1 that 0.4 can truly be the deciding factor. Did you know that the home team was 30% of all of the World Cups since 1930? Not only that, but the world's traditional football powerhouses like Brazil, Italy, Germany, Argentina, Uruguay, Spain, France ,and England have won over 50% of all the World Cups ever held. The is heading beyond just superstition almost into factual territory. There is no denying the effect that home field advantage has on the World Cup participants.

    The World Cup Trophy 

    The World Cup trophy is awarded to the winner of the FIFA World Cup tournament. In the tournament's history two trophies have been used. The first trophy was originally named "Victory" but was later changed to "Honour" after former FIFA president Jules Rimet. After several years of dominance Brazil won the original trophy outright in 1970. However, in 1983 the trophy was stolen from Brazil and was never recovered. The new trophy was called the "FIFA World Cup Trophy" and was made of 18 carat gold with a malachite base. The new trophy stood 36.8 centimeters tall and weighed in at 6.1 kilograms. The new trophy was designed by the Stabilimento Artistico Bertoni Company and depicted two human figures holding up the Earth. The current reigning trophy holder is Spain who won the trophy in 2010.
