with Seve Ballesteros
It was in 1976 that the young Ballesteros gave notice of what was in store for golf enthusiasts throughout the world when he came second to Johnny Miller in the British Open at Royal Birkdale.
Since that day two British Open wins, two US Masters and many wins all over the world have brought Ballesteros a long way from caddying at 25 pence a round in Spain to having his name engraved on winners' trophies.
He talks to Gordon Hewitt about the big game pressures, his need to relax and see his family in Spain.
