Does anyone know anything about the term "skins"?  I know what it means in
terms of golf (being a betting/scoring system) but can't find anything else
on it.

Dear Sir:

Could you please tell me the origin of the term "skins game"?  I hear this
term most often when referring to golf but there must be something more
substantial behind the term.
