This was the Open

when everything seemed to happen.

On the second day,

the boy Ballesteros was now six under par.

And led outright by two strokes.

But, inevitably, the power of world golf

had begun to close in.

Gary Player.

Johnny Miller.

Jack Nicklaus.

Severiano Ballesteros,

only nineteen.

Everyone enjoying him

and waiting for him to vanish

from the leaderboard.

I remember watching this 'boy'.

I watched the way that he did things

and it was a little bit unique.

Here was this young guy

ashing a ball,

playing great recoveries

and holing the putts

"This is a very special young man."

We all thought, who the devil

is this young matador of the links?

Straight in the middle.

And of course his story was

quite extraordinary.

My love was always playing golf.

Apart from golf, nothing existed for me.




There's the church, right here.

It's pretty old.

And the school is on the right.

Right here.

There's my school.

The golf course is right here.

Here is the sixth hole, down there.

There's bad roads here, eh.

That's where I lived.

The house is about 100 years old

and it was a quite solid house I think.

My father, he was a farmer.

My father really worked very hard

but my mother worked even harder.

She spent all her life for the family.





There's many ways to play golf.

You can build your own golf course

by using your imagination - wife all.

Well, because I was not allowed

lo play or practice on the golf course,

I used to play on the beach.

I used to practice seven,

eight hours per day.



Severiano Ballesteros,

only nineteen coming here this morning,

leading a field of world-class golfers.

Never before, in the history

of this great championship,

had a Spaniard

been leading the whole field.

Yes! It's right in the middle of the hole.

He's realty tweaking their noses.

What great stuff from this youngster.

Can Ballesteros possibly make it?

He's newborn into world-class golf

and some say this very innocence

makes him oblivious to pressure.

First, a' was hitting the bah'

ah' over the place

and started making double bogies

and triple bogies

Oh, oh, oh.

Wife. That's in trouble.

Ballesteros battling to get back

into second place

but he's got a long, long putt here

for an Eagle three.

Right in for an Eagle.

Quite astonishing,

this young Spanish player.

Miller actually congratulates him

on that monster putt.

No, he wants to get it in

two more from here

to tie with Nicklaus for second place.

I said he was about the only one that I

saw coming along that really impressed me.

He was tremendous around the green.

He had a lot of imagination.


Absolutely marvellous!

Straight in the middle!

What a prospect for the future and what

an exciting end to this championship.

That great chip-and-run

between the bunkers on eighteen,

man, that's a great shot.

I was very impressed with that.

Senoras y senores, muchas gracias...

He may have made a heart

throb among the girls of Southport...

In my mind,

I always dreamed and I always visualized

myself as becoming a champion.

Ballesteros is just about

to enter Leven's tigerish finish.

It's good. It's got the tail wind.

Oh yes! And the young matador

ls absolutely delighted!

Against all the odds he takes

the outright lead yer again

and can't wait to get to the next hole.

Strong breeze, so it's rather bold...

He ipped that one up.

He's running, he's jumping, he's hurling.

He really is charged up. This is what it

means by having your adrenaline owing.
