Famous Golfer gets $621 speeding ticket after Masters.

And we all thought professional golf was a game for poised and put together folks who never make mistakes.  Looks like we were wrong and even famous Masters champs make the same mistakes we all do.  Just like you or I, sometimes running late for an important meeting (or Royals game) causes our judgment to lapse and we get a speeding ticket.

You and I driving our Toyota from work to a baseball game is just the same as some famous golfer driving his Mercedes 97 miles per hour from million dollar golf game to another million dollar golf game... right?

The point is speeding tickets happen and when you get one you need to contact a speeding ticket lawyer to help keep them off your record.  If you need help fixing a speeding ticket call our office.

Olazabal pays $621 speeding ticket for driving 97 mph on Ga. highway after leaving Masters

 By: Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD, Ga. - Speeding between the Masters and his next tournament cost Jose Maria Olazabal $621 when a Georgia sheriff's deputy pulled him over for driving 97 mph on a rural highway.
Olazabal, the Ryder Cup captain for Europe, agreed to follow a deputy to the Effingham County Sheriff's Office and pay the speeding ticket in cash. The Spaniard was stopped Monday afternoon traveling from Augusta to Hilton Head, S.C., for the Heritage tournament, sheriff's spokesman David Ehsanipoor said.

Ehsanipoor said Tuesday that Olazabal "apologized, he was cooperative and after the paperwork was done he went on his way." He says the deputy clocked Olazabal's Mercedes exceeding the posted limit of 65 mph on the rural stretch of Ga. 21, a divided four-lane highway near the Georgia-South Carolina state line.  Olazabal's manager, Sergio Gomez, did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

The two-time Masters champion wasn't jailed, but his mug shot was taken. Ehsanipoor said the sheriff's department photographs everyone who is brought in on a criminal charge or citation.  Olazabal, inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2009, has won 29 times around the world and played on seven Ryder Cup teams. He won the Masters in 1994 and 1999.
