He was one of the most important players responsible for reviving the fortunes of the game of golf in Europe following years of domination by the American greats

He had some great Ryder Cup success and was a very competent commentator on the sport after his best playing days were over

He will go down in the annals of golf as a true legend and he will be sadly missed by everyone

I heard an extremely eloquent and heartfelt tribute to Seve on 5 Live this morning from the sportswriter Bill Elliot ...here he is writing about Seve in today's Guardian....

R.I.P Seve.....gone much too young ... Crying or Very sad ..but he left some wonderful memories for us to savour...
