Get your Kentucky Derby on with these hats to wear on the golf course
Hats. Let’s discuss them.
The Kentucky Derby is good for a lot of things, but nothing—not even the race itself—is as important as Where's Waldo-ing through the throngs of people and identifying the best headwear.
It’s an art. You want to have fun with it and be as ridiculous as you can be, within reason of course. It harkens back to Halloween parades in elementary school: Show off, do a twirl, impress the fans. Picking the perfect hat for the Derby isn’t a want, it’s a need.
Unfortunately, unless you’re Wes Welker, you most likely will never go to the Kentucky Derby live. However, since you’re reading this on Golf Digest, there’s a very good chance that you’ll be going to a golf course this weekend. So, live a little. Wear a ridiculous/awe-inspiring hat and impress your friends and enemies alike.
Scottish See You Jimmy Hat ($12.50)
It worked for Prince Akeem. It will work for you too. This Scottish cap will be the hit of your day on the course. Hopefully, a few other hits go your way, but you know what we mean. It may not keep the sun out of your eyes, but it will surely keep the haters away. It may not be your weekly headwear, but for Kentucky Derby weekend, it’s a must-have.
