    Guy + visor = lame.

    Let the women worry about the hair.

    I prefer a visor, but I am reluctant to where them much due to the negative publicity they are receiving lately.

    I prefer a visor because my head gets hot. I mostly wear a bandana or headband for sweat but for really sunny days, I put on a visor.

    I don't really care how I look because I'm not trying to hook up with up with anyone on the tennis court.

    I agree! Under a hot sun, I think a cap will definitely be worse than a visor... it's not about keeping a hair style..

    I prefer a hat but wear a visor when it's hot with no problem. I have really short hair so I dont mind the look. Long hair in a visor doesnt look that great but who cares. If you like it wear it. It's really silly to worry that somebody else may not like the look. Now wearing a cap backwards while playing looks stupid but hey thats just me. What do you care what I think.

    Just wanted to add that I think it's interesting that wearing a visor playing golf seems to be acceptable for men. Whats the difference?

    I always thought so. Not there's anything wrong with it.:grin:

    I prefer a hat anyway as it performs other functions like sweatband and keeping the sun off the top of my head.

    you cant wear visor unless you are a 2002 roddick wanna-be... but then he was quite lame... so by transitive property - visor = lame

    no straight man should be even consider wearing a visor, nor he should worry what his hair look like when he plays. you hear that Roger?

    So your equating wearing a visor with homosexuality? I guess in your mind there must be a lot of gay golfers.

    I usually wear a visor because I have short hair that I spike up. I did this before I realized that Andy Roddick used to do the same. And then I watched a video where Brad Gilbert said that visors reminds him of women's doubles >_>

    I still stick to the visor because I look really dumb in a hat. I guess my headshape is weird or something because my girlfriend likes to taunt me when I wear a hat. She doesn't mind the visor look too much.

    I used to only use headbands and I still do occasionally.

    Visors are WEAK! and fabrically but they make you look soo weak. The first thing Brad Gilbert did after being Roddicks coach was switching that visor in to a HAT

    hmm this is very interesting... so apparently visors are associated to homosexuality. So i guess all golfers are gay, including poker players that wear visors. For the most part, I think that wearing a visor isnt really a hair issue, but comfort and letting your head breath, since hats dont give your head room to cool off.

    If I'm playing midday under the sun, gotta go with the hat. If I'm under the lights at night or indoor, headband is the way to go.

    I wear the visor when I'm inside my house with the blinds shut so none of you can point fingers, snicker, and judge me.

    I wear a hat. It seems to me that people that wore/wear visors want you to think that they are cool. I just think that people that wear visors are silly. I would prefer to wear nothing, but the sun is a beast.

    Yeah, LOL, and boys in a boy band. But are they getting 'boy band ass'?

    Not that I'm some Vince Vaughn fan, but visors remind me of the guy Vince's character made fun of at the Cub's game scene in the beginning of The Break-Up, which was a surprisingly dark, funny movie (for a chick flick you see on cable with your wife). Kind of a dorky, skinny white dude with his shirt tucked in and a visor atop his little head.

    I know about the rule regarding guys and visors, but every hat I have makes my head hotter when I play.

    Hot in a hat? ^Me too^, except when I wear the mesh ones. I've got some Pacific mesh caps and a few by diadora, and they are great.

    Does this mean that the father of raja wears a visor?
