SEVE BALLESTEROS may miss the US PGA Championship next week at Bellerive Country Club, St Louis, the final 'major' tournament of the year, because of his recent poor form. The 35-year-old Spaniard, winner of three Open championships and two US Masters titles, has missed the cut in three of his last five events.
