    Rather than "knickerbockers", the golfers are wearing "Plus Fours".

    Thanks jamied - we don't have any golf fashion experts in the archive unfortunately.

    This is the 1929 Ryder Cup held at Moortown Golf Club in Leeds. The 3 men "posing for the camera" are Sam Ryder (middle) with Walter Hagen (left) and George Duncan, the Captains of USA and GB respectively. GB won the match 7-5.
