In 2006, the BBC celebrated 20 years of Masters Coverage. The BBC's involvement with the Masters has coincided with the greatest run of success that European golf has ever enjoyed at a Major event.
This success has been coupled with extraordinary stories of golfing endeavour and it is these stories, plus much more, that are celebrated in this book. It is written in close cooperation with Seve Ballesteros, who achieved the breakthrough for European golf when he became the youngest player to win at Augusta in 1980.
Seve also tells of his epic battle with Jack Nicklaus in 1986, and the fateful shot at the 15th that not only finished his challenge, but also, he feels, ended his reign as one of the greatest players in the world.
Sandy Lyle offers his own perspective on '86. The Open Champion was playing partner to Nicklaus in the epic final round and two years later made history of his own as the first British player to win the title, clinching victory with a bunker shot at the 18th, which is still rated as one of the greatest shots the sport has ever seen.
