It’s the second day of the PGA Championship and fans are enjoying a full day of incredible golf. But there’s one thing that seems to be really bothering fans: The hideous Nike hats.
Throughout the morning, fans have been trashing the hats, which feature the word “NIKE” sideways on the front, rather than the iconic Swoosh. The hat worn by Tony Finau was particularly panned, as it featured the sideways Nike logo with an orange and black color split.
One Twitter user wrote, “Why does Nike hate Tony Finau? Dude always gets the worst kits/gear. That shirt yesterday was so hurting.”

Yeah… it’s not exactly easy on the eyes.
But Finau isn’t the only golfer whose hat is getting raked over the coals.
Tournament leader Brooks Koepka got a lot of screen time on the first day and viewers did not respond kindly to it.
“Who at Nike designed these asstastic golf hats?”

“To think someone at Nike golf looked at Koepka’s hat and said “NO, having Nike written horizontally on this hat just doesn’t look right. Let me flip it vertically. Yeah that looks better!”

“These new Nike golf hats are straight garbage,” one person wrote.

Hopefully Nike takes the hint and goes back to a more traditional look with the Swoosh. It’s hard to wrong with one of the most iconic emblems in all of marketing.
The PGA Championship can be viewed on CBS this weekend.
