    The Visor - acceptable headwear?

    Last night I came across my Callaway visor from my first THP event and it got me thinking that I rarely see people wearing visors on the course. It made me wonder, is the visor acceptable headwear on the course or is there a reason that they're hardly worn?

    I'm bald up top and sunburn easy so for me it's a no. I always think Bubba looks odd with his but it's a personal preference thing.

    I wore them when I first started playing like 15 years ago, because I hated hat head. Now I just associate them with Poulter, so big "no" for me.

    I'm guessing with more people concerned with sun and skin issues you dont see them as much. Also, not everyone can pull off a visor, whether regular or high crown. I myself love them and have a few i rotate for my rounds. it gets hot here in the summer so wearing a hat makes it worse at times.

    I used to a long time ago (6-8 years ago maybe), any liked how it looked. Ruins it somehow (probably got bent), and never bought another one. Would consider it again, but I have so many regular hats I don't feel the need to add another to my collection unless it's needed or given as a gift. I think my wife might start the rule that I need to lose one before I buy another one!

    I'm the same way right now. I just ordered a Travis Mathew hat and my wife gave me the old eye roll.
