Embrace Impact Hat Review at Phoenix City Championships

Golf Hat Review

This week in my golf hat review I road-tested my Embrace Impact – Flex Curved Trucker – Heather Grey/Black – Tan Leather Patch – 600 Series (Branded Bills HQ) Mesh Back Adjustable Fit hat at the Phoenix City Golf Championship 2021. This three-day event, each at a different course (GCU, Aguila, and Papago) was a real test as the pin positions were tough and the greens were hard and fast. When I had a tough hole I felt motivated to get back on track and make great connections on the next hole and give myself birdie chances. That’s the power of embracing impact.

With the weather hot and sunny in the mid to high 90s, it is important to wear sunscreen and keep hydrated as each course to walk is around 6 miles a day. Headwear is important as you don’t want a hat that is suffocating and creates more heat on your head. You want a hat that is breathable and blocks the sun’s rays from overheating you.

Studies have shown that your head releases about 10% of your body heat, but it also accounts for absorbing a lot of heat during a sunny day. Wearing the right hat in the summer will keep you cooler. Yes, it’s true. Hats that keep the hot rays off your head will keep you much cooler than if you let the sun directly blast your head and face. So combine these thoughts and have a hat that blocks the heat and releases body heat, right?

The hat felt light on my head the full three days, even when the heat peaked at 100 degrees and in the early morning round in the 70s. Walking increases your energy usage and body temperature, I have to say my head did not sweat profusely like some other hats made me sweat. It kept me feeling cool and protected me from the harsh sun’s rays. I could not be happier with our choices in the production of our Embrace Impact performance hats.

What Do You Use for Inspiration to Promote Better Impact?

Too many times I would hit a bad golf shot and say to myself “You forgot to do this or that” worse still was that I was doing that on the range and hitting it great. In school when our teacher gave us an assignment or a lesson in something that required homework to lock it in. If we turned up the next day and didn’t remember any of it, our score on our test would be only our fault. The same thing goes when you have a golf lesson, these PGA Pros don’t just give you throw-away tips and advice, they want you to lock in what they are teaching you so they can add to it and improve your game.

“Impact” is the most important part of your golf experience (Outside of the 19th hole that is) We all want to hit better shots and have a better impact with the golf ball. I use my phone to take notes and reminders of things that I am working on. I grind on them while on the range and try to limit them out on the course. The one I focus on reminding myself about is embracing impact. I started writing it on my glove and then I started buying custom items with the brand on them. Now I have no excuse about forgetting to focus on impact and yes, it has cut strokes off my game and earned me cash from my friends.
