    Not meaning to be rude, I’m just very scacitpel. I’ve been a golf nut since the mid-80s, the biggest Ryder Cup (and Seve fan) for 25 years, and there hasn’t been one video, documentary or piece of footage that I haven’t seen in that regard. And yet I’ve never once seen the shot’ (& clearly I’d remember it!). Look how many Seve documentaries have been made, especially since he died. Every TV network in the world will have been scouring their archives for it, and yet no-one’s found it.
