Augusta - European Ryder Cup captain Jose Maria Olazabal was arrested for speeding shortly after leaving Augusta National, Georgia police said on Tuesday.
The Spaniard, the 1994 and 1999 Masters champion, was clocked driving 97 miles an hour in a 65 mph zone when stopped by an Effingham County Sheriff's deputy on Monday, sheriff's spokesperson David Ehsanipoor told Reuters.
Olazabal, who missed the cut in last weekend's Masters tournament, posted a $621 cash bond and was released.
"He was very cooperative and apologetic," Ehsanipoor said.
Olazabal will skipper holders Europe in the Ryder Cup in Illinois in September.
