The truth is, nobody's really quite sure. Some dictionaries list the old Scottish word, gowf, meaning a blow with an open hand or used as a verb meaning to strike, but still, nobody's sure if that inspired the name of the game or vice versa. Still, it certainly didn't come from the acronym listed above.
