As we head into Masters weekend, April 9 also marks the birthday of the great Seve Ballesteros, who would have been 59 today.

The two-time Masters winner played at Augusta National a total of 28 times, becoming the first European to win The Masters in 1980 before doing so again three years later. He also recorded six other top tens in his Masters career, including runner-up finishes in 1985 and 1987.

So, to mark his birthday and Masters weekend, we've compiled 14 of the best pictures of Seve in action at Augusta National.
