From bringing a previously unknown creativity to shot making to inspiring the current European renaissance in the professional game, few have completely revolutionized their sport to the extent that Seve Ballesteros has for golf over the course of his illustrious career.
Seve is the definitive autobiography of a true golf icon and a must-own for any student of the game and its history. Ballesteros is an outstanding storyteller who gives readers the inside stories of classic moments ranging from his legendary victory at the 1979 Open at Royal Lytham to Europe?s 1997 Ryder Cup victory in Seve?s homeland of Spain.
Just as interesting as Seve?s recollections of his proudest moments in golf are his anecdotes about his relationships with his family, the media and his country, including a scathing analysis of Spain?s failure to capitalise on opportunities to grow the game for future generations in the aftermath of the 1997 Ryder Cup.
This all amounts to a fascinating autobiography, which is why we are giving away a copy of Seve to one lucky winner this week. Don?t forget that we?ll also have our exclusive profile of Seve?s life in golf in the newest issue of Golf Monthly. This is a true collectors item so don?t forget to pick up your copy which will be available at local newsstands from Friday.
