Will Tiger Tim win Wimbledon?

It'll always be a subjective label.....but I cannot think of anyone else who virtually singlehandedly changed an entire sport, its perception and image. And he did it as an outsider....he made a closeted game popular, sexy even..... :shock: and he did it with style and humour. If you look at those early clips you realise how old fashioned and stuffy golf was in the late seventies.....all that changed when Seve hit the scene. Had more charisma than any sportsman before or since.....maybe only George Best was comparable.

Sad day for golf when a true ambassador, and one of the finest exponents of the game passes. RIP Seve, thanks for all you gave us

Aye all, well said....Got many messages today, he touched people who never played the game.
Unreal to think someone so captivating and passionate has gone. :-( Thanks for the memories.
RIP, Seve.

I'm currrently watching the CBS coverage of Quail Hollow, many many tributes flooding in, player interviews etc and all highlight videos from his career really are highlighting well just how influential and loved the man was.

years back at Wentworth my mate was following his round. Seve hit his drive into the rough right next to my mate and when Seve got to his ball my mate said ''come on Seve, magic time'' Seve looked at him and asked what club he would take and my mate said a 7. His caddie said it was a 8 shot, Seve said ''7 it is then'' and hit the ball to within 6 foot of the pin. The bloke was a pure golfing god and its a shame him and Tiger did not play at the same time 8)

I see that faldo and monty are pushing for the european tour to update their logo from an image of vardon to seve. Good idea I reckon.

Now that the curtain has closed on probably the most inspirational sportperson of his generation the stories come thick and fast.
Particularly liked the one by Ken Brown about the 83 Ryder Cup when a struggling European team complained about 4" Bermuda rough.
So Seve on the eve of the tournament takes them out for a lesson demonstrating how 'easy' it was to play from!
None of them got it though. :-).
