Javier Ballesteros had incredibly been to St Andrews before, the scene of one of the most iconic celebrations in the game.
In 1984 Seve clinched his second Open Championship win with a putt for the ages that never looked like going in until the last moment.
“It was, as he said many times, the happiest moment of his career,” Seve’s eldest son said.
This week Javier played in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and the 31-year-old signed off his opening 74 around the Old Course with a birdie of his own. Better still he had his sister Carmenita on his bag.
“It was pretty emotional playing down 18 and it was fantastic to be able to play here,” Javier said. “I was pretty sure I was going to hit a good shot on 18, maybe not that good, but I was definitely happy to finish with a birdie.”
