Seve Ballesteros: 1957 - 2011

Seve Ballesteros, member of the World Golf Hall of Fame and five time major winner, passed away Saturday due to brain cancer. Ballesteros was most known for his amazing short game, his creativity in getting out of trouble, and his fiery competitive spirit. He is regarded as the best Spanish golfer of all time and largely responsible for putting the European Tour on the map.

Before his death, he started the Seve Ballesteros Foundation with the goal of helping those with cancer fight the disease as well as cancer research.
