Seve Ballesteros is back in the hospital recovering from a fourth brain surgery, the BBC reports. The golf legend underwent a procedure in Madrid to drain fluid from his brain following the removal of a malignant tumor in October. The operation is an apparent medical setback for Ballesteros, 51, who had been allowed to return home last month. (More golf stories.)
