RIP Seve Ballesteros

seve ballesterosThe world lost one of the greatest competitors to ever play the game.  Seve Ballesteros passed away yesterday after a nearly 3 year battle with brain cancer.  He was diagnosed in October of 2008 and underwent several surgeries to remove a cancerous tumor from his brain.  At 54 years aged, it’s a loss that came much too early.  I will always remember watching Seve play in the Masters back in the mid-80’s, when I was a young child.  I’ve come to appreciate how great of a short game he developed and his level of creativity to get up and down from the most insane places.  Seve will be missed.
