Ballesteros was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2008 after losing consciousness at Madrid Airport.

The five-time major winner had four operations to remove the tumour as well as undergoing chemotherapy.

Did he have a brother who was also a golfer? Back in 1975 I think it was, we radio operators were loaned to Yorkshire TV to radio the scores back from each hole at the Dunlop Masters held at Ganton near Scarborough.

I remember Seve but he wasnt yet so well known then and I am sure he had a brother playing in the same event or am I just getting old?

He was a gent though. RIP.

Correct Helles, Googled

Ballesteros was born in Pedreña, Cantabria, Spain. He learned the game while playing on the beaches near his home, at the time while he was supposed to be in school, mainly using a 3-iron given to him by one of his older brothers. His uncle Ramón Sota was Spanish professional champion four times and finished sixth in The Masters in 1965.[1] Severiano's older brother Manuel finished in the top 100 on the European Tour order of merit every year from 1972 to 1983, and later became Severiano's manager. Brothers Vicente and Baldomero, and nephew Raúl are also professional golfers
