Seve was probably my favorite golfer growing up and learning the game. He hit it all over the course but was able to make miracle recovery shots from anywhere. As kids whenever we hit the ball deep in the bush we would pretend to be just like him.

He was not much liked by the PGA when he was younger and a challenge to the American stars; in fact the rules were changed by the PGA because of him. Early in his career he played only the most lucrative tournaments on the PGA tour (3 or 4 a year) and instead played nearly all his golf in Europe that the PGA made a clause that players has to play (I think at the time it was 11?) tournaments on the PGA tour to be allowed to play any PGA tour events.

Sad, he was such a talent but injuries took its toll on his career and obviously illness.
