Something pretty special happened yesterday, the son of the late Seve Ballesteros – Javier Ballesteros won the Madrid Amateur Open.
The young 22 year old Spaniard won by four shots finishing six-under par and was quick to dedicate his victory to his amazing father who passed away in May 2011.
“My father always told me that you have to play with what you’ve got, and that’s what I did,” said Ballesteros.
“I thought about him a lot during the 18 holes and I dedicate this victory to him and my mother.”
Javier is currently studying law at the Complutense University and will not decide about turning professional until he has finished his degree in Madrid.
If this young man has anything like the flare and passion of his father then we are in for a real treat. You get the feeling there could be something special happening here. What do you think?
