Mr. Ballesteros

An X tour offical tells a telling story about Mr. Ballesteros. Seems that he and Mr. Hobday (who presented himself as somewhat of a free spirit) were paired together and hit flares off the teeing ground to the right near a cart path in the heavy rough. Mr. Hobday arrived at the cartpath first and in addressing a ball in the heavy rough took what (in the Rules vernacular) would clearly be considered an unnecessarily abnormal stance with his heels on the cartpath. As he approched, Seve shook his index finger and head from side to side while saying no, no, no. Simon quickly then adopted a different stance using an abnormal direction of play which again got his heels on the cartpath. Again Seve shook his finger and head and said no, no, no.

Thereupon, Simon said good, Seve that's your ball.

Mr. Ballesteros will be missed, but his creative spirit lives on every golf who has faced down a near impossible shot and made it work.
