Olazabal Will Be One Of The New Faces At The Legends Of Golf

RIDGEDALE, Mo--John Daly won't be the only rookie here at the Legends, two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal is one of ten newcomers to this unique team format. The Spanish golfer will team up with countryman Miguel Angel Jimenez.

"I'm used to playing with Miguel.  And we've played Ryder Cup which is a team event.  But I think what makes it really different is we're playing par threes," said Jose Maria Olazabal.  
Olazabal has heard about the par three Top of the Rock and cant wait to take his swing at the $232,500 first place check.

"You do have a lot of elevation changes but it's a wonderful layout.  The par threes are beautiful and quiet demanding actually.  You know six or seven irons, even a five iron for one of them.  The water features are very important to those par threes.  The scenery is second to none," said Olazabal.

Olazabal, Jimenez and the other 47 teams are most likely going to get wet this weekend. Rain is in the forecast for the first and second rounds. However, it should be sunny on champinship round on Sunday.
