Seve Ballesteros

Relive Seve’s greatest shots

Seve Ballesteros was one of golf's most creative players and a pleasure to watch. This edition of Quick 9 celebrates the swashbuckling Spaniard best moments caught on camera
 

1983 Ryder Cup

Ballesteros’ bunker shot on the par-5 18th at the PGA National during the 1983 Ryder Cup is widely regarded as one of the greatest shots ever played.

It was a pressure moment for Ballesteros as well. The Ryder Cup veteran was all-square in his singles match with Fuzzy Zeller heading to the 18th.

Instead of hitting out of the bunker and laying up, Ballesteros fired a 3-wood 245 yards over water and onto the green.

US captain Jack Nicklaus proclaimed that it was “the finest shot I have ever seen”.

Ballesteros would go on to par the hole and halve the match.

Unfortunately, no video footage of the sensational shot exists but here’s Seve’s former caddy Nick de Paul recalling that amazing shot.
