We couldn’t let Ollie down, says Colsaerts
NICOLAS COLSAERTS has revealed the whole of Europe’s successful Ryder Cup team knew exactly what retaining the trophy would mean to their captain Jose Maria Olazabal.
The 46-year-old Spaniard masterminded the biggest fightback in Ryder Cup history as Europe recovered from 10-6 down against the United States to win at Medinah.
Belgian Colsaerts, 29, said: “Jose is a very passionate man and has an unbelievable size of heart.
“He has lived for this game all of his life – and more than anything this competition.
“He made clear to us that this thing was going to be very, very, very special to him – so everybody looked at each other and understood the importance of this cup in this man’s life.”
