No golf today.  Woke up to a blanket of that cold evil white stuff today.  There were about four inches on the ground. It isn’t done either.  It is coming down hard.

Time to schedule trips south to visit friends in warm places…

The BBC reported this morning that Seve Ballesteros did in fact have his surgery today to remove a brain tumor.  They reported that he was conscious after the 12 hour operation.

Other reports I’ve read say that not all of the tumor was removed.

Once again, I send my best wishes to Seve and hope for a full recovery.

seve ballesterosArguably there hasn’t been a better golfer at getting out of trouble than Seve Ballesteros. Seve provided years of passion and entertainment on the golf course for millions of fans.

The latest news on Seve is that he has a brain tumor which was discovered after he passed out today. They’re doing a biopsy to determine what course of action to take next.

I sincerely hope Seve is able to perform another Houdini (or should I say Criss Angel these days) like escape from this possible life threatening hazard.
