    Golf is a gentleman's game. It's a sign of respect to remove one's hat when greeting an adversary in a game. Gentlemen in the old days were expected to have higher moral standards than the common folk. So they had to respect all people, friend and foe alike. This tradition carries through in the gentleman's game of golf.
