An Australian tiff between Allenby and Ogilvy
Olazabal said they were playing a fourballs match against Curtis Strange and Tom Kite. On the opening hole, Olazabal hit to the middle of the green, while Ballesteros went at the back left flag and missed the green. Olazabal ran his putt about 4 feet by the hole. Ballesteros asked Olazabal to putt first to get par, freeing him up for an aggressive chip.
Strange said Olazabal would be standing in his line if Strange were to knock his putt by the hole, so the Spanish rookie turned to Ballesteros and explained the situation. Ballesteros handled the situation as Ballesteros always seemed to do.
“He looked at me and said, `Don’t you worry, I’m going to make it anyway,’” Olazabal did. “He chipped it in.”
