Seemed destined to become a golfer after his father named him after the great Seve Ballesteros. Notched four top ten finishes in 2013 to end the season inside the top 100 of The Race to Dubai for the first time. Kept his card comfortably in 2014, thanks largely to a tied third place finish at the Trophée Hassan II in Morocco. Hung on to his card by his fingertips in 2009, finishing 120th in The Race to Dubai – the final exempt spot – after coming joint 17th in the JBWere Masters. A back injury blighted much of 2010 and 2011, so he was back on the Challenge Tour in 2012 and made a fine start, winning the Barclays Kenya Open in his third event. Was steady, if unspectacular, for the rest of the season, until a tied fifth finish at the Grand Final moved him up to 20th in the Rankings, securing a return to The European Tour. Won his first Challenge Tour event at the Piemonte Open in Turin in May 2008 after carding a course record ten under par 62 in the third round despite being ill. Followed that up with his second victory at the inaugural Ypsilon Golf Challenge by Alex Cejka, where he triumphed after a three-man play-off. Like his close friend Ross Fisher he came through the Wentworth Club scholarship scheme, and was also a member of the Surrey team which won the English County Championship in 2004 at Worksop.
