And that surprised captain Jose Maria Olazabal.
“Do you think that was a surprise?” he said. “You don’t think Francesco is a steady player.”
The reporter said Molinari was an excellent player.
“All right then, no surprise to me,” Olazabal said. “It might surprise you, but when you look at Francesco’s game, he’s a steady player. He very rarely misses a shot. He’s straight off the tee. He hits good iron shots. And that’s pretty much what you look for when you are playing foursomes.”
The question to Jose Maria Olazabal was whether he would be as visible as his mentor, zipping around in a cart to cheer on his team.
“Well, I have to be careful how I drive the buggy,” Olazabal said. “I don’t want to get fined like I did when I was going from Augusta to Hilton Head.”
The room erupted in laughs.
On his way from the Masters this April, Olazabal was stopped for going 97 mph in a 65 mph speed zone. He paid a $621 fine in cash.
