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
 

1993 European Masters

Seve arrives at the 18th at Crans-sur-Sierre needing a birdie to have a chance at catching the leader Barry Lane. The famous final tee shot at Crans slopes viciously from left-to-right, and Seve had pushed his drive way right, up against a wall, and thus all but blowing the tournament.

Billy Foster, his caddie, advises Seve to chip out sideways but the Spaniard convinces himself that there is a gap to get the ball up towards the green. With half a backswing, Seve launches it through the tiny gap and the ball ends up a few yards short of the green. The very definition of a miracle shot.

Of course, Seve would chip it in for the most unlikely birdie. Agonisingly, Barry Lane holds on to win by a solitary shot.
