Mickelson Thought Seve Tribute

Phil Mickelson planned  Spanish menu for Champions dinner menu in honor of the two-time champion Seve Ballesteros of Spain until the implementation was not healthy enough to travel. 
Mickelson said Tuesday during a meeting that had been in contact with Ballesteros, hoping that it would be able to return to Augusta National this year, despite its continuing struggle against brain cancer. 
"I just sent an e-mail telling him that if he could come and feel healthy enough to be able to make this tournament, I'd love to have dinner to be something that he would like - a plate of Spanish paella or what he thought was appropriate, "said Mickelson." I kind of wanted to honor him. " 
Mickelson said he had received some emails recently demonstrated that Ballesteros can not do. 
"Our thoughts and prayers are with him that evening," said Mickelson. 
Ballesteros has been diagnosed with brain cancer in the fall of 2008, a year after announcing his retirement from golf at a news conference at Carnoustie  during the British Open.
