Why does golf continue to have a dress code?
Some days I just go to the range to hit some balls or chip and putt. Can be a pain to get 'dressed up' in the 90 degrees heat and humidity sometimes when I am just trying to get out of the house for a quick hour or so. Would be awesome if I could wear a T-shirt at least. My club is pretty low brow, yet still have to wear collared ****, etc.
What other sports does one get 'dressed up' to play where the clothes is not tied to functionality?
Swimming = you wear a bathing suit optimized for the task
Baseball / football / Basketball = uniforms that match the sports needs
Golf = all you need is to be as comfortable as possible and wear non restrictive clothes, yet a collar and $70 shorts/pants are required
I don't see it as a 'respect thing' - respect for what?
