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.

Evil cold wet white stuff falls out of the sky

snow golfI was not too happy when I looked out my window this morning. There was this very strange white stuff on the ground. It was very cold and wet. There was more of it falling from the sky. It is called snow.

Yes, snow on October 12th. Today marks the first post of my yearly, winter long whining about the weather. The forecast high for today is 39.

Yes I could move to a warmer area. I will some day, when my world allows me to do so.

Unhappily yours,

Two cool trucks

I shot the two photos within five minutes of each other while stuck in traffic.  Photo one the guy not only has a golf hole airbrushed on to the back of his truck, his licence plate cover says “no putts.”  Photo two is obviously a “HOG” (Hooked On Golf Blog) fanatic.

Not too late to get me a birthday present

Yes today is my birthday. Every year now I lose some distance off the tee, I get a few more gray hairs, my eyebrows get bushier (thanks pop), and I lose a few billion more brain cells.

Below is my list of eligible gifts I’d be willing to accept. This is the SAME list I posted on my birthday last year, and the year before and so on… For some reason none of these modest, easy to obtain and inexpensive items ever arrived last year.

1. 2009 Masters tickets. Isn’t there someone out there with an extra ticket to a practice round for me? I know you’re out there.
2. Golf at Augusta National.
3. A Porsche 911 Turbo, 911 GT 3 or Cayman.  I prefer silver similar to picture below
4. A golf trip to St. Andrews (better include the airfare, spending money and hotels too).
5. Golf at Pinehurst #2.
6. Golf at Pebble Beach.
7. Golf at Bandon Dunes.
8. Golf at Shadow Creek (better include some Vegas gambling money and an evening at the Olympic Garden).
9. Golf at Pine Valley.
10. Golf at TPC Sawgrass.
11. A round of golf, including the 19th hole with Anna Rawson.

That’s a pretty good list. More than one submission of each selection will gladly be accepted.
