9. Catherine Lacoste
She was "Catherine the Great" in 1967 when she became the first foreigner and first amateur to win the U.S. Women's Open. She was also the youngest, at 22, and the most continental, being the daughter of French tennis star and sportswear magnate Rene "Crocodile" Lacoste. Excitable and sometimes overwrought, Catherine emoted over every shot and was an enigma to her peers, but she definitely had style. "Miss Lacoste blazed across women's golf," wrote Rhonda Glenn, "fiery as a meteor."
8. Patty Sheehan
She did a cartwheel across the 18th green when she won the last of her six majors, the 1996 Kraft Nabisco Championship ... and then she took the traditional plunge into the pond. So you didn't need to see Sheehan, left, in her colorful plus fours to peg her for an extrovert. Said Sheehan, "I just tell myself, 'Relax, Bozo. If you can't have fun, you shouldn't be out here.'"
