Seve Ballesteros

Mick Mac

Recommended Posts

There is a tribute on BBC at the moment.

Seve was my golfing hero growing up (and everyone elses too). He was a special competitor and an entertainer. He could not control his golf or be controlled. He was exciting and entertaining.

It is sad to see him grow old too soon with his brain tumour. But some great flashbacks to a great career.

[He played the great shot out of the bunker at the Ryder Cup against Ray Floyd with a Tony Penna wood - I remember those - don't know if anyone else does - they were one of the best wooden clubs made prior to the metal clubs coming into popularity].

A great man and I hope he achieves his ambition of coming to the Open at St Andrews next year - that will draw a big crowd.

Its very nostalgic viewing.

I chased him round the clubhouse at the Irish Open at Royal Dublin in the early 1980s but he ran faster than me and all his other pursuers - he was the only autograph I did not get, but he was the biggest star in the golfing world then, it was good just to see him in the flesh.

    • Although at the beginning stages of the lino/woodblock relief printing journey , I find the beginners set of tools I have ( with the red plastic handle & individual cutting blades) cumbersome to use , so I am looking for a set ( or individual tools ) of the type used by professionals , with wooden handles . Hoping someone may have some which they are willing to part with  - We should be able to agree a fair price in exchange them.  Please PM me if you do .
