Seve Ballesteros' eldest son, Javier, makes his professional golf debut today at the Alpes de Barcelona tournament being held at Sant Cugat, the same course where his father started out in 1974.

The 21-year-old, who is studying law in Madrid, competed in the Barcelona Amateurs last weekend and managed to secure an invitation to play at Sant Cugat this week. Ballesteros said: "When I registered for Sant Cugat, I didn't know that my father played his first professional tournament here; now that I know, it is double excitement."
