Sadly, the golf world lost one of its all-time best players during the Wells Fargo. Seve Ballesteros died Saturday following a three-year battle with brain cancer.
His passing was remembered with not only a black ribbon worn by all the competitors at the tournament, but also in countless stories from those who knew him personally.
Additionally, at 3:08 p.m. Sunday, a moment of silence fell upon Quail Hollow Club as all participants and spectators paused for a moment of silence to remember Ballesteros.
Ballesteros won 87 tournaments, including five majors, and was a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. His worldwide influence on the game of golf will never be forgotten.
When I picked up the game at 15 years old, he was my original favorite PGA Tour player and someone I looked up to. I was saddened to learn of the decline of his health several years ago, as well as his death this past weekend. Ballesteros was a mere 54 years old.
Buena suerte (Godspeed) Seve.
