In golf, honor is the right for a player to tee off first on a given hole. A player earns that honor by scoring the best on the previous hole. If two people tie on a hole, the person who had honor previously gets to go first again.

On the very first hole, the first tee is often determined by a coin toss. You can also flip a tee in the air and use whoever it points at when it lands. A third way is for a neutral party to hold a random number of tees in his hand and have a team call odd or even.
