There are golfers, and there are golfers. And then there's Seve. Severiano Ballesteros is perhaps the most naturally gifted golfer ever to have walked a fairway. From the moment his brother Manuel gave him his first club acirc;euro;" a 3 iron acirc;euro;" he was unstoppable; he played shots others could only dream of. A few weeks before his 17th birthday he turned pro. Five years later he won the Open. A year after that he became the first European ever to win the Masters. A genius had arrived. For the best part of two decades Seve dominated the golfing landscape. With 94 wins to date as a professional (including 5 Majors), 6 European Order of Merit titles and the No. 1 position in the Official World Golf Rankings, he became a sporting phenomenon, an athlete who transcended acirc;euro;" and still transcends acirc;euro;" his sport. But Seve stands for more than simple excellence. Almost single-handedly, Seve gave European golf credibility; almost single-handedly, he made the Ryder Cup one of the greatest contests in world sport. And when, as captain, he finally lifted the trophy on home soil in 1997, a whole continent rejoiced. His pride and passion have inspired millions, and we have taken him to our hearts. Now, for the first time, Seve tells his story. From his humble beginnings right up to the present day, here at last is the man behind the magic in his own words.
