A decade after his passing, Severiano Ballesteros Sota is still the all-time leading winner on the European Tour and a Spanish golf icon.
Ballesteros, the youngest of five sons, won 50 times on the Euro Tour and finished with five victories in majors — including the Masters twice (1980, 1983) and the Open Championship three times (1979, 1984, 1988).
His success and flair endeared him to fans in both his native Spain, across Europe and in the U.S. Ballesteros, 54, died in 2011 after battling a brain tumor.
Here’s a look at the life and times of one of the game’s greatest personalities.
