Top golfers honor Ballesteros at Wentworth pro-am

Several top European golfers have honored Seve Ballesteros by
playing a pro-am event at Wentworth to raise money for cancer
charities.

Two weeks after the Spanish great died at 54 following a brain
tumor, Jose Maria Olazabal, Colin Montgomerie, Paul Casey and
Justin Rose joined Ballesteros’ brother, Manuel, to play in the
”Ole Seve” event.

Ryder Cup captain Olazabal says he has ”lost a dear friend and
we’ve all lost an icon, but he will always be present.”

Ballesteros won seven times at Wentworth.

Ballesteros set up the Seve Ballesteros Foundation for cancer
research after his 2008 diagnosis. Monday’s event was in aid of its
partnership with the Cancer Research UK, which has raised about
$1.1 million.
