Jose Maria Olazabal, a two-time Masters champion and part of the “Spanish Armada” with Seve Ballesteros that became the most formidable team in the Ryder Cup, has been elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Olazabal was elected on the International ballot and will be inducted Nov. 2 at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Fla.

His election looked unlikely when Olazabal, 43, suffered a career-threatening foot injury in the mid-1990s that confined him to the couch for nearly two years. He recovered to win the Masters in 1999 for the second time.

Olazabal won 29 times around the world. He and Ballesteros combined to go 11-2-2 as teammates in the Ryder Cup.
