What makes a golf legend?
Around the Academy:

What makes a golf legend like Jack Nicklaus or Seve Ballesteros?
Tiger Woods will one day be a legendary golfer, there is no doubt about that.

But until his career is over we won't know what heights he will reach.

So who are golf's legends? People often talk about Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros and Arnold Palmer but why?

Was it their ability to win again and again or an instinct to entertain the crowd?

Sporting legends leave their mark. They take their sport onto another level or produce moments which people never forget.

Sometimes a person's contribution is bigger than sport. They break down the barriers which stood in other people's way.

Sport Academy explains why some golf stars are simply legendary.
