HEAT OF THE BAT­TLE SEVE BALLES­TEROS, 1995

Golf Australia - - A GOLFING LIFE -

Bat­tling a fail­ing long game, Seve was up against Tom Lehman in the open­ing match of the Ry­der Cup sin­gles. A suc­ces­sion of as­ton­ish­ing lob shots, in­clud­ing a hole-out at the 2nd, kept a match that could have been a de­mor­al­is­ing thrash­ing tight un­til the lat­ter stages. The match re­mains a great ex­am­ple of how a sharp short game can turn you into a re­doubtable match player.
