Golf was, and always will be, better because of Seve.
If you aren’t familiar with the magic of Seve Ballesteros or you’d like to rememeber what made him one of the most watchable golfers to ever play the game, here are a few videos of him in action.
1984 British Open
I would love to see more golfers celebrate like this. Sheer joy.
1983 US Masters
Here he plays the final hole at the 1983 US Masters, his second win at Augusta National. He won by four shots over Ben Crenshaw and so had plenty of shots in hand, but he still managed to make the final hole interesting. A wayward second shot meant he faced a tough chip shot which he didn’t play too well. Then he just went ahead and holed the next.
