The Players Championship of 2022 is quickly approaching, and fans of this favorite stop on the PGA Tour are no doubt starting to pack their bags. Not only is the legendary TPC Sawgrass course absolutely gorgeous and the competition unbeatable, but the energy of this tournament is always a highlight. If you’re planning on making the trip to Florida, there is so much to look forward to.

When many people think of The Players Championship, one of the first things that comes to mind is the TPC Sawgrass 17th hole. For those who are unfamiliar, the 17th hole is known as the “Island Green,” due to its intimidating placement in a lake. The hole is a wide green that narrows on the right side and is a short length par 3. Spectators love watching their favorite players tackle this hole, which is as challenging as it is beautiful.

When it comes to Tour gear, like The Players Championship t-shirt or hat, you can check out your options in the merchandise tent, also known as the Fan Shop, at the tournament. These items won’t be available online, so buying this swag at the tournament is going to be your only opportunity to pick up a cool golf hat from The Players Championship line of Imperial gear in 2022. 

For those of you who want to make sure you have an appropriate hat to take to Florida with you before you check out the merch tent, we’ve got you covered with ideas for customized golf hats that match the vibe of The Players Championship, the unofficial fifth major.

Design a Hat for The Players Championship

If you’ve been itching to add a new hat to your wardrobe, The Players Championship is the perfect opportunity to do that – Imperial has several options for customized golf hats that are totally unique and definitely you. Using the custom hat maker, all you need to do is select the style of hat, from men’s bucket hats to a golf visor or a custom golf rope hat, there are so many options to choose from.

Next, you can add your own words or logos to your cool golf hat, or you can pop one of Imperial’s icons on it to finish your look. The best part when you design your own hat? There’s no minimum for custom logo golf hats, so you can order just one if that’s all you want.

If you’re looking to design your own hat to fit the hot and sunny weather and you’re interested in taking a peek at Imperial’s icon options, we’ve narrowed down some of the best options for a hat befitting The Players Championship. See if any of these appeal and get going on creating your customized golf hats. 

Celebrate the TPC Sawgrass 17th Hole

Anyone going to The Players Championship is anxiously waiting to watch competitors at the 17th hole, also known as the island hole. Embrace the island theme with some Imperial icons that fit that tropical experience. When it’s five o’clock somewhere, put on a hat with a margarita or paloma icon from the Refreshments Collection

If customizing your own golf hat isn’t your speed, we’ve got a variety of hats already designed for you that are perfect for a tropical vacation look in our Vacation Time collection. There’s bound to be an option that speaks to you and will be perfect whether you’re sitting at the 17th hole or heading to the beach. 

Men’s Golf Hats for Florida Man

If you’re a local or just love visiting the Sunshine State, design a hat with a little bit of Florida on it with icons that are available in the Tailgate Collection. Show everyone in Ponte Vedra that you love the state you’re in with an outline of Florida

Another option for showing off some state pride? Put Florida’s state flower – orange blossoms, from the State Flowers Collection – on a customized golf hat. If you’re really looking for something that will keep your head cool, consider putting it on a mesh back hat or a Tour Visor®.

Cool Hats With Flamingos

Maybe this will be the year you see a flamingo in Florida! Especially if you spend some time in the Everglades during your trip, make sure you’re dressed appropriately for seeing these pink birds in a customized golf hat with the popular golfing flamingo from the Imperial Mascots Collection

One idea if you want to go for a tropical island look in recognition of the TPC Sawgrass 17th hole is to put a flamingo on one of our floral printed hats for the ultimate vacay golf hat look. The Aloha Rope Cap comes in a variety of colorful floral prints that would look great with the addition of a flamingo icon. 

Whether you’ve decided to design your own hat for The Players Championship (with or without some island vibes) or are looking forward to browsing the available Imperial merch at the Fan Shop, there’s no doubt this year’s tournament will be an exciting one. We’ll see you down in Florida, hopefully sporting an awesome new golf hat.
