Ramon Sota, Spanish star and uncle who inspired nephew Seve Ballesteros to greatness, dies at 74 #pga

MADRID -- The Spanish golf federation says Ramon Sota, the uncle of Seve Ballesteros and inspirational player of the 1960s and 70s, has died. He was 74. At age 18, Sota won the first of four Spanish championships. He also won four tournaments in Portugal, France and Brazil during the 1960s. He finished sixth at the 1965 Masters in Augusta Natoinal, which was at the time the best result by a European player. Sota's best result at the British Open was seventh in 1963. Sota, who retired in 1972, inspired Ballesteros to go on to become Europe's top player with five major victories. Ballesteros died of a brain tumor last year. Sota's son Jose Antonio said his father's philosophy was ''work, fight, recover'' and ''he had a competitive spirit and knew how to recover from a bad day.''
