José María Olazábal was born on this day in 1966. He is a two-time-Masters-winning Spanish professional golfer who has enjoyed success on both the European Tour and the PGA Tour.
In 2012, he captained Europe's Ryder Cup team to a narrow victory over the USA, which seemed improbable at the start of the final day's play when the Europeans trailed 10–6. They came back to win 14½–13½. Olazábal was very emotional with the win, saying in an interview that that was the happiest moment of his golfing career.
