When you talk about golfers who have worn green, the list has to start with a man named Green. Ken Green, a five-time winner on the PGA TOUR, fully embraced his surname to create a unique look for himself in the 1980s and 90s by frequently sporting green pants, shirts, gloves and shoes covered in exotic skins.

Charley Hoffman is the current day Ken Green. Thanks to his passion for the environment and his sponsorship with Waste Management, Hoffman rocks a green glove, shoes, hat and belt with his TravisMathew threads to bring awareness to the 4 R’s — reduce, reuse, recycle and recover.

Whether you are looking for a bit of luck on the course or just looking to stand out this St. Patrick's Day, John Daly's outlandish shamrock pants from Loudmouth Golf will add a bit of flair to your game. If this is the direction you are going, though, pair these loud pants with a solid color shirt as JD did here.

Warning: Duck Crossing. Ben Crane played golf at the University of Oregon, but he seems to have pulled sartorial inspiration from the Ducks’ football team over the years by sporting variety of spirited green and yellow ensembles.

I'm usually down with Henrik Stenson's sartorial choices, but this green monochromatic kit had the big Swede looking like a 6-foot, 2-inch leprechaun. Monochromatic looks are in, but stick with traditional black, grey and navy this spring for best results.

Many players wear green at the Masters, but Jimmy Walker’s first round look in 2014 was definitely a sartorial highlight. His unique gingham ensemble was clean, crisp and well tailored. He also got extra points for the matching gingham belt, which created a seamless look.

The 2007 U.S. Walker Cup Team celebrated in these dark green blazers, but it was the GB&I Team that was left green with envy. Many of the PGA TOUR’s biggest style trendsetters teed it up for this Walker Cup Team. How many TOUR players do you see? Hint: there is one FedExCup champion, one U.S. Open champion and six PGA TOUR winners with a total of 21 PGA TOUR victories.

If it is a Sunday, you will likely find Matteo Manassero rockin’ his signature green pants from Ralph Lauren. The Italian has adopted the color as his final round go-to color in honor of his idol, Seve Ballesteros. He has also copied the Spaniard’s wizardry around the greens.

We can’t have a gallery of golfers who wear green without including a couple of nattily attired Irishmen, and none are more dapper than Graeme McDowell and Darren Clarke. Both are always on point with classically inspired looks, contemporary fits and modern details.

The one green article of clothing that every golfer covets the most is the Green Jacket. It also happens to be the most difficult green piece of clothing to add to a wardrobe. Here’s to Jack Nicklaus for slipping it on six times.
