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 spokesman 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.
