Jose Maria Olazabal Biography

Jose Maria Olazabal was born in Hondarribia, a town in the Basque Autonomous Region of Spain on 5th February 1966. He made a spectacular entry onto the golf scene in as a junior by winning The (British) Amateur Championship aged eighteen. He turned professional in 1985

In his rookie professional season of 1986, Olazbal finished second on the European Tour Order of Merit aged just twenty. In his first nine seasons, he finished in the top 10 every year except two, including another second place in 1989, and he was a regular member of the top ten of the Official World Golf Rankings (over 300 weeks). Had Olazabal beaten Ian Woosnam at The Masters in 1991 (he finished second) he would have become the World number one. He was unable to play in 1996 due to a foot injury but he recovered and recorded further top ten placings in the Order of Merit in 1997, 1999 and 2000. He has more than twenty career titles on this tour.

Both of Olazabal's majors have come in the United States, namely The Masters in 1994 and 1999. These wins make him the only winner of The Amateur Championship since World War II to have gone on to win a professional major. He has been highly placed in The Masters on a number of other occasions. Olazbal shares the record for the lowest round in the PGA Championship (63), which he accomplished in the third round at Valhalla Golf Club in 2000.

In 2001 Olazabal began to play on the PGA Tour, while also retaining his membership of the European Tour.

In 2002 he had a solid year on the PGA Tour when he won nearly two million dollars and came twenty-fourth on the money list. However, he has not duplicated the success he enjoyed in Europe in the 1980s and 1990s. He has six career PGA Tour titles, five of them won before he became a full member of the Tour. In 2006 he made a return to the top fifteen of the world rankings.

Olazabal was a member of the European Ryder Cup team in 1987, 1989, 1991, 1993, 1997, 1999 and 2006. He formed a famous partnership with fellow Spaniard Seve Ballesteros that spanned many years, and formed a similarly successful partnership with Sergio Garca in 2006.

Olazabal was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2009 with 56% of the vote on the international ballot.
