Gone, but certainly not forgotten - Seve Ballesteros is the greatest of all-time when it comes to short-game skills and bunker play.
That was the result of a survey carried out among PGA Tour players
by American magazine 'Golf Digest', with Graeme McDowell among those asked their opinion.
"From what I can tell it was just pure natural instinct," Northern Ireland's 2010 US Open champion said.
"My coach Pete Cowen talks a lot about Seve's feel. He spent a lot of time with Seve working on short game, in the bunkers, and his basics were instinctive.
"He just knew how to play every shot. He might not have known the technique, but he learned it in his head and he was just a pure natural."
Ballesteros died on May 7 last year after battling a brain tumour for over two years. He was 54.
The players polled were asked to name the best now and the best ever in six departments of golf - driving, putting, short game, bunker play, iron play and mental game.
Greg Norman was voted the sport's greatest driver with Dustin Johnson the best at the moment. In putting it was Steve Stricker now and Tiger Woods the all-time great, former Open champion Stewart Cink commenting: "Tiger Woods is the best clutch putter I've ever seen."
In short game Phil Mickelson came out top among the current stars, while Luke Donald was rated the best out of sand at present. No surprise there - he has led the statistics two of the last three seasons.
Ben Hogan was rated the best iron player of all time, but Rory McIlroy is tops now, with McDowell saying: "He's a great iron player because he's got that flight - it's long and they have a soft landing.
"He hits four-irons like I can only dream about."
In mental game Woods, even with only one victory on the circuit in over two and a half years, was still named number one now and joint best ever alongside Jack Nicklaus.
