Blessed with perhaps the most natural talent for golf since Sam Snead, Seve Ballesteros burst onto the international scene when, aged 19, he led the 1978
British Open into the final round before eventually finishing runner-up.  Since then, his great achievements--winning five major championships and more than seventy tournaments worldwide--have been marked by a dazzling array of shot-making and crowd-pleasing skills.

As though not content to win the easy way, Seve's extraordinary exploits have thrilled spectators around the world.  If most golfers drive into the trees, they are happy to escape with a par. Seve looks for a birdie. If most golfers are trying to get down in two from around the green, Seve is thinking about holing out in one.

No golfer in the history of the game has demonstrated more imagination in his analysis of the options that each shot presents or more flair in executing the stroke. In this book, Seve explains his philosophy for "trouble-shooting" and how it can work for you--how to make the best of the difficult situations that you will, from time to time, find yourself in on the course, and then how to play your way out of them. From sloping lies to bunker shots, from deep in the rough to deep in the woods, from playing out of water to playing in the wind, Seve shows you how to do it.

Winner of more than seventy tournaments worldwide since 1976, including five major championships--three British Opens (1979, 1984, and 1988) and two U.S. Masters (1980 and 1983)--Seve Ballesteros was the chief reason for continental European golfers being admitted to the Ryder Cup in 1979 and the main inspiration behind Europe's subsequent successes.  He will be the Ryder Cup captain in Spain in 1997 and has topped the European Order of Merit six times. He is the author of Natural Golf.

Author of three previous golf books and script editor for Seve's video, The Short Game, Robert Green was editor of Golf World (UK) from 1988 to 1995 and is a contributing editor to Golf Digest in the United States.  He has been the recipient of three British Sports Journalism Awards. He has
played at more than 320 different courses on five continents, and to show for all that experience he once won a golf writers' tournament.

One of the world's foremost golf photographers, Dave Cannon joined Allsport in 1983 and became a director of the company in 1987.  Winner of several prestigious photographic awards, Dave is also a handy golfer. He currently plays with a six handicap, and in his early days he even played with Seve--in a
pro-am just a few weeks before Seve shot to stardom by finishing runner-up in the 1976 Open Championship.

Review:

Few golfers have played with the flair and creativity of Spain's torero of the links, Seve Ballesteros.
