Bucket hats trending at the U.S. Amateur
Wednesday, August 24, 2011
ERIN, Wis. – A popular item this week at the U.S. Amateur is the Erin Hills bucket hat. In fact, it was so popular, it sold out by Wednesday.
It’s been a while since a hat was this popular at a U.S. Amateur – you might have to go all the way back to Pumpkin Ridge in 1996, when Tiger Woods was shown on a local TV live shot wearing a black U.S. Amateur hat that he continued to wear every day as he mowed through the field and won his third U.S. Am title.
Woods turned pro the following week, but even today you can buy that hat at the Pumpkin Ridge pro shop.
