Nothing much, to be honest. Justin Thomas has been wearing a hat ever since he began playing golf and has been continuing that tradition. However, what tends to attract fan interest is the fact that Thomas sometimes likes to mix it up with his hat design. 

Justin Thomas wears a Titleist hat, and it is normal for golfers to wear the hats provided by sponsors. Furthermore, one can even find FootJoy’s logo on his regular hats, but JT recently upped his game by sporting a different hat design. 

In the aforementioned post, one could see that Thomas is not wearing his regular hat. Instead of the Titleist logo in front, it is JT’s personal logo that takes center stage, and to be honest, it looks good. 

Thomas does not wear this hat often on the PGA Tour. Too bad that fans don’t get to witness this design much when he’s competing. In fact, Thomas wore this hat during the 2021 Masters and that’s when it broke out on the internet.

What is the reason behind the logo design? 

The JT logo on Thomas’ hat is self-explanatory. Those are his initials that are brought together in an aesthetic way for the purpose of a logo. Moreover, his initials are also the official logo of the Justin Thomas foundation.
