July 21, 2016 - By Emily Potter

Today we’re rounding up sports headwear, including golf hats and of course, baseball caps. We’ll also look at some crazy facts about promotional products.


Choosing Golf Apparel

Golf is a unique sport in that there is a dress code one must adhere to prior to stepping on the green. Today, golfers value materials that enhance performance as well as fashion.

Hats help golfers by blocking the sun without interfering with their game as sunglasses can. Additionally, performance fabric caps have wicking capabilities to minimize sweat and moisture and keep the wearer cool.
