Jose Maria Olazabal Won His Second Masters
In the final round of the 1999 Masters golf tournament, the lead went back and forth - with five players - including Georgia’s Davis Love III – tied for first place at one point. In the end, Spain’s Jose Maria Olazabal, who won the 1994 Masters, finished 8 under par to win his second green jacket. Love came in at 6 under, repeating his 1995 second-place finish at Augusta National.
