After hinting he might rejoin the PGA Tour as a card-carrying member, Seve Ballesteros has changed his mind. Ballesteros, the three-time British Open champion from Spain, said before the Open at Lytham & St. Annes that he was seriously considering playing the 15 official PGA events required of tour players. "I just can't play 15 tournaments here and 9 in Europe and 2 in Japan," Ballesteros said this week. "So I don't think I'll join the PGA Tour again."
