Expensive drive for Jose Maria Olazabal
April 11, 2012

Spanish golfer Jose Maria Olazabal , heading from Augusta after the Masters to his next tournament in South Carolina, was clocked speeding and fined $621, authorities said.

The incident occurred on Monday, when Olazabal , the European Ryder Cup captain, agreed to follow a deputy to the Effingham County Sheriff 's Office and pay the ticket in cash, sheriff's spokesman David Ehsanipoor said.

Ehsanipoor said Tuesday that Olazabal, who exceeded the posted 65 mph speed limit on the four-lane Georgia highway where he was stopped, apologized and was cooperative. Once the fine was paid he was sent on his way.

USA Today reported Olazabal was clocked at 97 mph.

Ehsanipoor said Olazabal wasn't put in jail, but the sheriff's department did photograph him as it does for anyone brought in on a citation.
