Anybody still do this?  I pretty much always do, pretty much always have...not sure why.  If I'm playing a casual round, I'd say it's about 1 outta 10 guys that will also take their hat off to shake hands.  I've played a lot of competitive golf, and in those cases it's higher but still probably no more that half of guys doing it, and it seems like fewer and fewer all the time.  I should say that it doesn't bother me in the least if someone doesn't take thier hat off...and I'm not all about tradition or anything like that either.  I'm pretty young, 28.

Dumb topic I know, just wondering if I'm the crazy one that keeps taking my hat off!! :D

I don't... traditional relic if you ask me.
I'm sure some will respond that it's a gentlemen's game; and you're showing the game some respect by taking off your chapeau... Is there a golf god somewhere keeping score on who does and does not remove their cap/hat after a round...? gimme a break.

I don't understand the idea of taking your hat off indoors either... Who or what does this offend?

I do as a respecting gesture to other player.

Whether other people do or not, that doesn't concern me at all.

I just do it because I feel that I can learn something from each and every player

I do it......   trust me, people notice the gesture.  Especially the old guys.  Younger guys could care less usually, but I can see the look in their eye when I do it and they don't (it says....crap, this guy has class.....and about 70% of the time they reach for their own hat before we shake hands).

I think it is a good topic and one worth posting on.....thanks.

i always take my cap (and sunglasses) off after a round to shake hands. whether or not my playing partners do is up to them, it doesnt bother me either way. i think it is more respect to my fellow competitors than it is respect for the game. i have noticed that more experienced golfers take their hat off while most casusal golfers dont. no science to this odservation, just an observation.

I do shake my playing partners' hands after a round. Just as I do after meeting someone pleasant in any other setting/situation. You shake hands upon departure...

Etiquette and respect say I should remove my hat to shake hands at the end of a round.  They also say that I should not relieve myself, when indoors, in the kitchen sink, or dining room corner.  They also say that I should open and hold the door for a lady.  Etc, etc, etc.

You take your hat off indoors due to respect of the owner and a good gentleman always untucks a ladies dress from her undies.

Do you still tip your hat to passing ladies as well?

Taking your hat off inside, after a round, etc... is a sign of respect and I was always told that if "you show respect then you will receive respect."

I do it.. it just sort of comes as second nature. It's a sign of respect and as far as taking off a hat indoors and especially in a dining area.. for some (like me) the military ingrains this.

I take my hat off due to the tradition of it, I don't think any less if someone doesn't do it.

I do see your point but at the same time we deal with social norm.

If I don't remove my hat inside of club house, someone will come to me and ask to remove the hat.

Some people are fine with eating off of paper plate and some just won't. Just matter of where you came from and what you are accustome to.

No right or wrong answer for this in my opinion.

I always take my hat off and shake hands with the group after a competitive round, but when I'm with my regular golf buddies we usually just go straight to the club house and relax for a while. I think its too formal to do with my friends, but I always do it to an apponent.

Back in the day........
people usually identified the social ettiquette and how to deport themselves in public. The same "I don't see a problem" ethic of today is usually why we have threads such as "I don't see a problem with tiger spitting on the green" or "I don't see a problem wearing jeans on the course" or "I don't see a problem using a cell phone on the course".
The main problem IS you don't see. Todays society is so wrapped up in their own personal bubble that they have no clue or respect for their surroundings or the people that come within it. They have no idea of what they may or may not be doing my cause harm or upset the feelings of others.
So the next time you park you car sideways between two parking spaces, kick the seat of the person in front of you on the plane, break wind in a restaurant, vomit over a waitress in a bar or just shoot somebody for cash, spare thought for the other people who may not share your opinion of "I don't see a problem with it". Are we clear - or do we really need to dumb it down further?
It's a mark of respect and etiquette - similar to not walking on a players line, talking during someones swing, not raking a bunker, not repairing your pitchmark, not replacing your divots. You get the picture. Problem?

I don't SEE... that's funny...

That litany of infractions you listed involve 'victims'. Those actions have an effect on someone else's end result

I understand etiquette and I am quite considerate. However, I don't see how not removing one's cap somehow 'hurts' someone else. Besides making someone I don't know think I'm classless.

I don't... traditional relic if you ask me.
I'm sure some will respond that it's a gentlemen's game; and you're showing the game some respect by taking off your chapeau... Is there a golf god somewhere keeping score on who does and does not remove their cap/hat after a round...? gimme a break.

I don't understand the idea of taking your hat off indoors either... Who or what does this offend?

If you have to ask, you will never understand.

Why do you agree? Don't gimme some silly "back in the day" story either.




Back in the day........
people usually identified the social ettiquette and how to deport themselves in public. The same "I don't see a problem" ethic of today is usually why we have threads such as "I don't see a problem with tiger spitting on the green" or "I don't see a problem wearing jeans on the course" or "I don't see a problem using a cell phone on the course".
The main problem IS you don't see. Todays society is so wrapped up in their own personal bubble that they have no clue or respect for their surroundings or the people that come within it. They have no idea of what they may or may not be doing my cause harm or upset the feelings of others.
So the next time you park you car sideways between two parking spaces, kick the seat of the person in front of you on the plane, break wind in a restaurant, vomit over a waitress in a bar or just shoot somebody for cash, spare thought for the other people who may not share your opinion of "I don't see a problem with it". Are we clear - or do we really need to dumb it down further?
It's a mark of respect and etiquette - similar to not walking on a players line, talking during someones swing, not raking a bunker, not repairing your pitchmark, not replacing your divots. You get the picture. Problem?

So if I don't start taking my hat off I'll eventually shoot someone? J/K :cheesy:

I shake hands after the round, but I don't take off my hat.

When and how did this start, it seems to me to be a relatively new thing started by the pros on television. I don't remember Jack taking his hat off after a round, but maybe he (and the others) did and I'm just not remembering.

For those who who think taking off your hat (indoors or outdoors) is an "antiquated custom", do you shake hands?  Isn't it also an antiquated custom of respect and good sportsmanship?  After all, these days hardly anyone needs to evidence that they don't have a weapon in their hand (although from some recent threads, some of you are carrying guns, if not a sword or dagger anymore).  And, after all, shaking hands could transmit germs!

I guess, better would be the classic, "Yo dude, whasup?" OK, like, what...ever.  Awesome.
