Ryo Ishikawa's Rickie Fowler Look Makes Headlines

As you've probably heard, Ryo Ishikawa played his way into the OWGR top 50 last weekend, and in so doing secured a spot at Congressional for the 2011 US Open.

This week the stylish Japanese teenager is playing in the Diamond Cup... an annual tournament on the JGT... where he took an early lead and created quite a bit of buzz among followers of fairway fashion. 

You see, there's something a bit different about the way Mr. Ishikawa is accessorizing these days, and it has everything to do with his headwear.

It's different... but familiar.  The slightly oversized cap, with a flat bill and a touch of hip-hop styling... Ryo is clearly channeling Rickie Fowler with this look and Japan's golf fashion scribes are loving it.

Thank you Noriko for the "heads up" on Ryo's Rickie Look!
