These Seve Ballesteros one-liners will make you miss the legend

A tribute to the genius. 

Seve shows you how to deal with photographers

Watching the likes of Bubba Watson deal with distraction is mind-numbing. I can understand that these guys are out earning a wedge and don’t have the time for pleasantries, but most of them have the charisma of a damp rag.

Seve could charm the pants off a snake.

His banter was on another level

Can you imagine translating a sense of humour into another language? People forget that Jack Nicklaus wasn’t actually that likeable, he earned respect by being the greatest golfer of his generation, not because he was a cool cat. Jack had prickly personality that didn’t appeal to the golf fan. It took someone like Seve to bring out the best in Jack.

Probably the greatest one-liner you will ever see on a golf course

Again, this sadly reminds us of the overgrown man-children who throw tantrums in the modern game. “I know you’re nervous, but so am I,” is comedy gold.

It’s true what they, everyone has a Seve Ballesteros story

A beer and a Sam Torrance monologue would be an awesome way to spend a Sunday evening. These anecdotes are further proof that Seve’s charm was present in everything he did.  It also reveals his feisty competitiveness that hid behind his confident demeanor.
