ABSTRACT
LEE WESTWOOD is not a man for the flowery phrase. He is a solid, sensible individual who chooses his words with earnest care. But yesterday, in the space of three tweeted sentences, Westwood conveyed what the world of sport was feeling after the death of Severiano Ballesteros. 'Lost an inspiration, genius, role model, hero and friend,' said Westwood. 'Seve made European golf what it is today. RIP Seve.' You could imagine Seve reading the words and being touched by their sincerity. Then reading them again and deciding that, on balance, Westwood had got it just about right.
