Severiano Ballesteros

Seve at the 1976 Open at Royal Birkdale
I was saddened yesterday by the news of the premature death of Severiano Ballesteros. He was to my golfing generation what Arnold Palmer was to my Dad's in the 50s and 60s. He played the game with style and panache and played as if he enjoyed every minute of it. Some of today's great players could learn a lot from Seve's joie de vivre.
