THERE’S NOT MUCH SERGIO GARCIA can do for fellow Spaniard Seve Ballesteros, who lies in a Madrid hospital bed recovering from three brain operations in recent days.

But one can have a pretty good idea idea what Seve would tell him: Go out and play tournament golf. Play with abandon; play to win.

Garcia won the Castellos Masters on his home course on Sunday, his first European Tour title in three years. He shot a final-round 67 for a three-shot victory over Peter Hedblom. Garcia dedicated the win to Ballesteros.

“I couldn’t help but think about Seve,” Sergio told the AP. “I’m sending all my love to him and his family and hope he recovers soon. I hope this victory helps him to get a little better.”

Nice win. Nice gesture.
