Spanish Golf Legend: Seve Ballesteros

...Spanish Golf Legend...

Seve Ballesteros

Since we were just checking out Tiger Woods earlier this week, I thought it would make sense to check out another Rolex Ambassador. Seve Ballesteros past away earlier this year in May. He was only 53 years old, but in his golf career he won a total of 87 titles which included three Open championships (1979, 1984 and 1988). He also won two Masters at Augusta in 1980 and 1983.

Seve Ballesteros is pictured above and below after winning the 1997 Ryders Cup

Seve Ballesteros is pictured below with fellow golfing legend, Tony Jacklin who is the winningest British golfer in history. Notice Tony Jacklin is wearing a yellow-gold Rolex Day-Date.
