   schema:reviewBody ""A golfing legend with five major championships to his credit, Severiano Ballesteros is one of the game's great heroes - charismatic, charming, fiery, unpredictable. Over the past 20 years, no other golf writer has enjoyed such regular contact with Seve as Robert Green - meetings, interviews, conversations and meals together, all of which led to a video and a golf instruction book. Later, there was to be an autobiography, a project from which Seve withdrew - twice. This book draws on the material and insights gathered during those collaborative years to capture the real Seve as never before. The book describes Seve's family and upbringing in Pedrena on Spain's north coast, his first tournaments and titles, leading on to the glory years. Green recalls the great wins in the Open and the Masters, and also those that slipped from Seve's grasp, and he details how Seve's skills and enormous popularity helped the European Tour and the Ryder Cup to flourish." "But he examines Seve's darker side, too: his controversial and very public spats with officialdom, his sometimes troublesome business affairs and his latterly tempestuous private life, which culminated in his divorce from Carmen, the daughter of one of Spain's wealthiest men, to whom he was married for seventeen years. Above all, though, it is Seve the golfer who takes centre stage, resulting in a portrait that does full justice to its colourful and mercurial subject."--BOOK JACKET." ;
