Javier Ballesteros wins Madrid Open

Like father, like son.
Javier Ballesteros, son of the late Seve Ballesteros, won the amateur Madrid Open Sunday. It's his biggest victory to date and he dedicated it to his dad.
"My father always told me that you have to play with what you got, and that's what I did," he said. "I thought about him a lot during the 18 holes and I dedicate this victory to him and my mother."We'll have to wait and see if Javier can follow in his father's footsteps and have a successful professional golf career (Seve won 50 European Tour victories including five majors). But, if the whole golf thing doesn't pan out, at least he has a pretty solid backup plan — a career in law.
