We could literally list hundreds, but here are the best of the best in English and suitable for the web:

Cigar. Pink Shirt. Plaid Pants. Ponytail. Visor. Aviators. Big Belly. Miguel Angel Jimenez is everything that is right about The Masters.

Miguel Angel Jimenez 4 under through nine. I don't know how he does it. But he already has low ponytail and low cigar locked up.
