The 2018 Ryder Cup venue will be announced Tuesday, with many players and fans hoping European golf officials seize an opportunity to honor Seve Ballesteros by sending the showpiece to Spain.
Emotions are high after the flamboyant five-time major winner died this month following a three-year struggle against the effects of a brain tumor. Ballesteros' family is among those to suggest Tres Cantos, north of Madrid, should win out over bids from France, Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal.
Ballesteros' brother, Baldomero, says "it would be the greatest tribute to him."
Forever linked with the Ryder Cup after leading Europe to victory as player and captain, Ballesteros made a rare public appearance in May 2010 to support Spain's bid.
