Golf greats turn out to pay tribute to Seve

Some of the world's leading golfers donned their golf shoes to take part in the Old Seve! Pro-Am event at Wentworth on Monday.

Jose Maria Olazabal led the event which raised £618,168 for the Seve Ballesteros Foundation.

The 2012 Ryder Cup captain was overwhelmed by the turn out and delivered an emotional speech in honour of his friend and compatriot.

He noted that when Seve was diagnosed with cancer he had two goals – the first was never to give up and the second was to help as many people as possible.

"That's why he started up his foundation and is why this is a very important day. Seve can't be here but I am sure he would be proud of what everyone has achieved today," Olazabal added.

The event, which was attended by 24 top players, also included an auction of some very rare memorabilia.

Ballesteros' Rolex Daytona wrist watch sold for £65,000, believed to have been purchased by Paul Casey, and a gold Ping Putter, a replica of the iconic model wielded by the Spaniard during his Open triumph at St Andrews in 1984 was bought by Ian Poulter for £55,000.
