When Curtis Strange comments, "He had a chance to have the world in the palm of his hands," Strange said, "and he didn't embrace it." -- it kind of makes me wonder if Seve was wise not embrace putting the world in the palm of his hand. Think of another star who recently embraced all that was in front of him. It can work against you. How did it work out for you know who?

Seve is a true world sportsman. We can only hope he is well enough to attend and play at St.Andrews. In this day of Tim F generated clones,cheetahs and the goofs at NIKE he remains a breath of fresh air. Watching him compete made us all winners.
This is real change

Curtis Strange is the last tour pro who should comment on the actions of a peer.

A man of intensity and style.

Erratic enough to get into trouble, good enough to get out of it - with an exclamation point.

If you're too young to remember Ballesteros, just know that he is worthy of this honor.
