Greenville, NC – June 22, 2016 – The Web.com tour embarked on music city last weekend for the Inaugural Nashville Golf Open. James Driscoll laid claim on the tournament win, finishing 19-under after a total of four rounds. Protecting his Mohawk, and making him easy to spot outside the Leaderboard, was Driscoll’s Real Deal Brazil Original Tarp Hat.
“Last week I was amazed at how well I was able to manage my emotions / nerves and quiet my mind. I wouldn’t say I was particularly sharp with my ball striking but my short game was great and my ability to save those crucial shots during each round was clutch” Driscoll turned pro in 2001 and has since played in 240 events for the PGA tour and 93 for the web.com tour. “Golf is a constant lesson in humility. It’s also a constant challenge to maintain confidence when things don’t go as planned. I’m fascinated by the balance of the two. The people I look up to seem to have a great balance of the two and it’s something I think golf is helping me to work toward.”
“I plan on wearing the real deal Brazil hat through the summer.” Says Driscoll, who plans to play in all the Web.com tour
tournament’s this year, with the exception of California and Utah dates. “I’ve been on a search for hats that protect my ears and neck for a few months now. I’ve reluctantly spent more money than I’d like on different hats that are cool and do the trick but don’t travel well. When I read the inside of the hat I was immediately sold. I literally did a fist pump at the cash register.” Inside each Real Deal Brazil hat is the story of the collection and how it is made from upcycled Brazilian truck tarps. “The last thing I want to be doing is worrying if my hat is going to make it to the next event in one piece.”

Each piece has been handmade in Brazil, is unique, and has traveled all over South America before it reaches its new owner.
