Doctors said that they also repaired a bone defect stemming from one of the procedures the golf great has undergone since his initial operation on October 24 to remove a malignant brain tumor.

A hospital official declined to say if the latest surgery meant the 51-year-old Ballesteros had taken a turn for the worse in his recovery.

Ballesteros was first admitted on Oct 6 after fainting at Madrid's international airport.

Ballesteros, who won a record 50 tournaments on the European Tour, has called the situation the "hardest challenge of my life."
