Ballesteros urges Woods to be patient but return

BY foxsports • February 17, 2010

Seve Ballesteros says Tiger Woods should be patient about returning to golf but urged him not to abandon the sport.

Ballesteros, who is recovering from a cancerous brain tumor, says golf is going through a dip without its No. 1 player and hopes ``Tiger returns to play because if he goes, golf will lose a lot.''

Ballesteros, looking healthy and cracking jokes as he reminisced in front of a crowd of fans about his past achievements, says Woods is still young so there is no rush for him to return.

Ballesteros says he was disappointed with how several of Woods' sponsors abandoned him during the ordeal, which culminated with the American golfer admitting to infidelities.
