THE son of five-time major champion Seve Ballesteros is one step closer to following in his father’s legendary footsteps.
Javier Ballesteros, 23, has turned professional three years after his father died from brain cancer at the age of 54.
“Today my dad comes to my mind,” he said.
“He taught me almost everything I know about golf, and I would have loved him to see me turning pro. I am sure he would be very proud.”
Ballesteros Junior will begin his career by enrolling at the Alps Tour qualifying school.
Seve won 87 titles in his career, including the Open in 1979, 1984 and 1988 and the Masters in 1980 and 1983, and played in eight Ryder Cups.

Sporting hero Seve! although you’re right about the comments on this website. Not many positive ones about Spain or the Spanish. Bit sad really.
He looks so like him. Let’s hope he does well!
