1979 Seve Ballesteros Wins The Open At Royal Lytham and St Annes


Three years after finishing runner-up as a dashing 19-year-old at Birkdale, Seve Ballesteros won the first of three Open titles, and of a pair of victories at Royal Lytham & St Annes, in 1979.

He defied those who thought he was too wild to win a major. His big-hitting could be wayward but his magical short game was more than capable of getting him out of his frequent scrapes.
