Olazabal on 'battle of Brookline'
- From the section Golf
2012 European Ryder cup captain Jose Maria Olazabal discusses the 1999 event when Europe narrowly lost to the USA.
The American team won the 33rd Ryder Cup at the Country Club in Brookline Massachusetts by a margin of 14½ to 13½, the closest score possible except for a tie.
Olazabal famously had to watch massive American celebrations on the Brookline green before he got the chance to make his putt after Justin Leonard sank a monster to halve their match and all but seal the Cup for the United States.
