    After a best of 7 hard fought series, yes. After an 11pm shinny game, everyone does it and we're not all being rude and disrepectful to each other. Totally acceptable. Different sports, different levels, different customs.

    Usually (not always) the only physical contact between golfers are two handshakes and its strange when those handshakes contain a good exchange of hair oil/dandruff/other stuff. I guess its just a vanity thing that the offender doesn't even realize they're doing. "Must make my hair the way I like to show it off to the world before everyone sees my hathead" subconscious fail. And nobody cares what your hair looks like anyways.

      Must be a Millennial thing.

      To call it disrespectful is a bit over-the-top, but I play in a senior league and fist bumps are certainly not the norm. Probably 80% take off their glove and shake your hand.

        Millenial thing? Doubtful as our players range from 20 to 60 and its 100% not looked down upon.

        Anyhooo, this thread was meant to be about pro golfers on TV, not rec league hockey. I've put wayyyy too much time and thought into this. I'm out. Its very rare I actually see somebody do it on the course but I guess if its your thing and you like it, keep on tusslin' and shakin'. I'm sure your playing partners will love it, even if they don't say it

          I play as a single on most days, so I end up playing with all sorts of people. I don't ever remember this issue ever coming up. We always shake hands and I always take my hat off as well. It's a respect thing, isn't it?

            Anyone notice a certain Canadian golfer run his hand through his hair before shaking Spieth's hand yesterday?!
            If I had to describe myself in just one word....“doesn’t know how to follow directions.”

They've probably spit on their ball to clean it.. or a club. They probably took a piss or crap and didnt was thoroughly. They touched their golf bag, clubs etc that most likely havent been washed at all or recently.
              How do you feel about sex? because having sex with a person is pretty much having sex with everyone they had sex once you decide to forgo the protection. (hopefully after the right choices have been made)
              You need to stop having sex on the golf course! C'mon now !!
              Then again......there was this super hot cart girl once.
              TGn'rs bored over the coldest days of the year will talk about the stupidest stuff!!

                  This has definitely become a "thing" when I play with other TGN'rs!!

                    Phil does it all the time . . .
                    If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

                      I wonder if DJT runs his hand through that mop? Either way, it's going to be painful

                        It is extremely un Canadian to be derogatory to people with mental health issues.

                          Greasy sweaty hair is fine by me when you think that you are always handling your ball, and lord knows what they run through on fairways greens and rough... then you buy something off the cart girl and touch that and eat it.

                          Goose poop!! Dog Shite!!! Guys who urinate on the fairway (yes, I play with a couple of guys who do that). LUGENS!!! Saw a huge praerie oyster at Woodington legends fifth hole green and wondered just how often would the ball roll through that and then touch it and possibly eat something off the cart. I could go on I suppose....

                          Best to try and not think about it all if you suffer from OCD

                            What an ***hat.
                            One can only wonder what other world leaders really think of this guy. (ooops I mean the PPPP....PPPP....President.)
                            Next time you see officials/leaders meeting with Trump, take a look at their expressions as he speaks. What an embarrassment.
