It is impossible to think about the Ryder Cup and what it is today without thinking of the late Seve Ballesteros.
Ballesteros, hands down, is one of the all-time greats. He was the leader of Europe’s re-emergence in the biennial matches and led his continent to five victories over the U.S. as a player and captain.
Simply put, the five-time major winner is sorely missed — by everyone.
