Seriously, what do you do? Do you go work in a factory or something? There's almost nothing you could do that's more leisurely, unless you go into a coma or something.

I don't know why I find this so funny.

Seve Ballesteros Announces Retirement
Seve Ballesteros, a 5-time major winner and the all-time leader in European Tour victories with 50, on Monday announced his retirement from competitive golf:

He was torn between trying to keep playing and stepping away, and decided to give it one last chance at the Masters, where he won twice. But he finished last after rounds of 86-80, then tried one event on the Champions Tour.
"I don't have the desire," Ballesteros said at a news conference at Carnoustie, where he made his British Open debut in 1975.

He said he would continue to play golf with his children, and his focus would be spent on his family and his business, which includes golf course design. His announcement follows television reports from Spain that he tried to commit suicide, which Ballesteros said "were not even close to reality."

Ballesteros' final victory on the European Tour was in 1995. He turned 50 earlier this year and made his Champions Tour debut, but played poorly. He then withdrew from two other Champions Tour events, both senior majors.

I am sure he can get a job somewhere at a country club teaching saps like me how to play better.

Open a hardware store. Nothing more relaxing than selling hammers.

He could hang around the country club and get in an illegal golfing bet with a snobby judge and crass realestate tycoon.

He can start his illustrious Wheel-Of-Fortune-watching career.
