Seve: U.S. Open "worst of the majors"

Seve Ballesteros on the 2006 U.S. Open:

"I watched 45 minutes on Saturday [second round] and didn't see a single birdie, so I decided not to continue watching it," Ballesteros said yesterday. "For me, it was like watching basketball rather than golf. It is very sad to see real champions finishing plus-20, and I don't think that is the spirit of the game."

"I have never been in any favour of the U.S. Open in any way, and I think it is the worst of the majors," he added.
