Seve Ballesteros is hospitalised after 'fainting'
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

He's "gravely ill" now and suffering from an unspecified serious illness. Go Seve!

Would a shout of 'Get in the Hole!' be appropriate?

He's in the bunker alright...

I wonder if this 'illness' might be related to the remarkable slump in form he had
before he retired?

A bit more news here.

It does read a bit like an obituary...... :flame:

Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.

They may know now.
When you're younger, you can eat what you like, drink what you like and still climb into your 26 inch waist trousers and zip them closed. Then you reach that age, 24, 25, when your muscles give up, they wave a little white flag and then without any warning at all, you're suddenly a fat bastard.

Doctors still hacking around in the rough looking for the ball. Does the 5-minute rule apply?

It could be make or break for Seve as he undergoes all-day surgery after "suffering a brain haemorrhage". He has two tumours, one benign and one malignant, in a "very deep part" of the brain.

3rd time lucky for Seve and the surgeons, apparently.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Still, I expect he's still feeling a bit under par.

In this context, that familiar phrase looks even sillier than usual. Obviously it should be 'he's still feeling as if he's just signed for a 12 at the par 3 1st, having found the lake with his first 6 attempts to find the green'

Thing is, do we stick or twist.

It could be that the operation is a complete success and Seve recovers.
Or that it's a partial success and although he wont die inthe immediate future, he could be sucking food from a straw
for a bit.

Or it's delaying the enevitable... :rolleyes:

My sister had a huge brain tumour removed last year, over the course of two very long ops within a week, followed by radio and chemo. My opinion is that it's delaying the inevitable. I hope I'm wrong.

Whether it returns on not, he's unlikely to survive three full-on brain invasions without some lingering damage and a few cognitive problems. The seniors tour is almost certainly over for Seve.

In other words, it'll probably handicap his handicap.... :rolleyes:

I agree. My sister has been left with memory loss and a complete change in personality, for the worse.
