R.I.P. Seve Ballesteros

Seve Ballesteros
Originally uploaded by jbruntthailand.

You were a champion both on and off the course...and so dashingly handsome.

Seve never had an entourage of sycophants traipsing after him or bodyguards rushing him to exits and keeping the public at arm's length. Seve had time for everyone and anyone. He was a working class hero who was just as comfortable in the company of kings and golf fans. He was a sporting god who never lost his common touch.

Nobody, of course, is perfect. Seve could be feisty, confrontational, intimidating, bad-tempered and moody, but he never bore grudges. He was joyous, charming, charismatic, witty, approachable, and boy, he was cool. His aura simply oozed sex appeal. He was Elvis in slacks and that navy-blue Sunday sweater. It was a privilege to be around him. Seve made it easy. - Golf.com

There are very few people in the world, let alone in sport, who are known by one word, one name. Just the mention of Seve was enough. Everybody knew instantly about whom you were talking, what he did and what he stood for. That is special.- The Telegraph
