Low Weight Golf Visor with an Elastic Band
This golf visor tends to be my favorite since it messes up my hair less, is lightweight, and is often the least expensive. They often come in colorful designs and patterns. The downside of is that they are easily smashed out of shape and the white cushion fabric dirties easily.
Headband golf visors are more durable and often are sold by the makers of famous golf apparel and golf equipment like Titleist and Ping. The heavy headband can be tight on your head and often heavy. They are more durable than those with an elastic band, but the headband can crack if you place something like golf clubs on top of it. Colors also tend to be more muted.
Cap style Velcro closed golf visors have a Velcro cloth tab that fits through a loop and tightens to your head size. The upside of this style is it adjusts to your head size with ease and a few pulled hair strands that might catch and give you and ouch. The cloth often has a hole like a baseball cap where you can feed a ponytail through, allowing your hairdo to look neat. The downside is it can be difficult to fit perfectly and every time you put it on it has to be adjusted. Most men’s style golf visors are of this type.
Typically, this is a matter of buy the only type in stock at the pro shop because any visor is better than none at keeping the sun off of your face, helping to avoid skin cancer and aiding your concentration and ability to see.
- Choose the visor that matches the majority of your golf outfits.
- If you use a marker on your visor, the headband style and cap style tend to be more rigid.
- If you have long hair, the cap style may allow you to pull the heavy hair off of your neck.
- If you travel a lot, the elastic band style packs easiest.
P.S. Sunblock is still needed even if you where a golf visor to protect your eyes and face.
