We're teaming up with the American Melanoma Association to bring attention to an important issue facing older golfers.

Did you know that more Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every year than ALL OTHER CANCERS COMBINED. By age 70, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer.

That's we why are encouraging golfers sixty and over who wear a baseball cap during a four or five hour round of golf to switch their headwear to a UV protective wide brim hat and also consider a lightweight UV protective long sleeve polo shirt. While wearing a baseball cap is better than going hatless, most are not made with a fabric that protects against the sun’s UV rays and do not protect prominent areas such as the neck, ears, nose, cheeks and chin that can be particularly susceptible to skin cancers.
