Pic: This basic woolly hat on sale at the Ryder Cup will cost you over €100

It's a nice hat but c'mon...

That's the gear sorted but you also want to look the part out on the course so getting the right attire is important. A pair of golf shoes, pants and a smart jumper should sort you out but as we enter the colder months of the year you'll want a hat to keep you warm.

Newstalk's Nathan Murphy is at Gleneagles at the moment and earlier he tweeted his disbelief at the price of a pretty basic looking woolly hat for sale on the course. A crazy carry on...
