Seve: A Biography of Severiano Ballesteros : Seve is the most extrovert player Europe has ever produced. Playboy good looks along with a magnetism that attracted non-golfers to the game made him the biggest drawing card Europe has ever had. He emerged on the world scene with typical elan, hitting one of the most outrageous shots ever seen at the 1976 Open Championship. Three years later, he became the youngest Open Champion of the modern era when he won the first of his five major championships. Ballesteros started Europe's domination of the Majors throughout the 80s and 90s, paving the way for Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Ian Woosnam, Sandy Lyle and Jose Maria Olazabal. His play in the Ryder Cup, fuelled by an intense dislike for Americans, helped restore Europe's pride in the event. Driven by Basque pride and with a fiery Latin temperament, Seve has often let his heart rule his head. "Seve" is the remarkable story of one of the game's most fascinating characters.
