Ryo (pronounced Yo) had headcovers that looked like him complete with visors matching what he was wearing that day...

All his pants were 100% tailor made....not TM but made by a tailor...
He even used elastic stitching....

I am a huge  ishikawa fan

Possibly the most underappreciated American top player ever.  51 wins on the PGA Tour (nine on the senior tour), three majors, nearly all of them against Nicklaus, Palmer, Player, Trevino, et al.  There are young players coming up today who don't even know who he is.  (Because, you know, Tiger invented golf, and nothing matters before that.)

Hitting it left-handed during his match against Ernie Els at the 1994 World Matchplay.

Arguably one of the greatest shots ever.

The photo at the green everyone knows. But this photo is great. Seve at the 1984 Open Championship on the 72nd hole.

Yeah, if you post a photo of Seve doing pretty much anything, the reaction is going to be "oh, sure, he hit that shot / did that thing."

Taking a page out of Christosterone's book and started delving into Getty Images.  Found this picture of Sam Snead working the Pro Shop at Greenbrier, with his Ryder Cup bag beside him.  Hard to imagine any of today's pros having a "real job" so that they can support their pro golf career.  Also, it's no wonder players have gotten better over time, considering that they no longer have side jobs to attend to and can devote more time to their swings.  
Also, it makes the counter case for playing for pride at the Ryder Cup vs a performance bonus, but let's not litigate that here.  

Here is the photo, and the original caption:

"Sam Snead's Greenbrier Golf Shop
(Original Caption) Many of us have seen pictures of golf pros in action - that is, taking part in the big tournaments that capture the fancy of sports enthusiasts throughout the year. But what does a golf pro do when he's at his base of operations, the base usually being one of the nation's big country clubs? Typical example is Virginia-born Slammin' Sammy Snead, who's been winning championships and tournaments since 1936. He recently gained nationwide attention and a huge admiring gallery when he won the Masters in Augusta, Georgia. Snead is the pro at swank Greenbrier Golf Club in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, where Acme staff photographer Harry Leder took these photos to show a day in the life of a golf pro. Ed Thompson, of Palm Beach, Florida, drops into Sam Snead's Greenbrier golf shop to buy some new golf balls. Note Snead's U.S. Ryder Cup bag at left"

Jose Maria Olazabal.

Ollie was world no. 2 at one point before the injury took him out of the game for over a year. He came back to win the 1999 Masters.
