Seve's Best Shot at the European Masters

By: Golfshake Editor | Tue 04 Sep 2018 | Comments

25 years ago, with a young Billy Foster by his side, the legendary Seve Ballesteros found himself in contention at Crans-sur-Sierre during the European Masters, a spectacular venue where he will always be remembered having won the event three times. Facing a seemingly impossible second shot after a wayward tee shot positioned him amongst the trees, the Spaniard ignored the advice of his bewildered English caddie to defy the odds and play through the narrowest of gaps. 

Naturally, he succeeded, somehow navigating the ball just short of the green in two. Foster was speechless, before the great man underlined his genius by chipping in for birdie, ultimately finishing one shot behind winner Barry Lane.
