Sunday, October 12, 2008. (AP) -- Seve Ballesteros has a brain tumor and will undergo a biopsy Tuesday.
The five-time major winner announced the news Sunday in a statement issued by Madrid's La Paz hospital. It was unknown whether the tumor was benign or malignant.
The 51-year-old golfing great was admitted to a hospital for tests after briefly losing consciousness last week.
Ballesteros said doctors will decide how to proceed after the biopsy.
The former Ryder Cup star, who won a record 50 times on the European tour, also was admitted to a hospital last year and was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat.
