Miguel Angel Jiménez’s bid to extend his own record as The European Tour’s oldest winner failed after a closing 1-over 37-36=73 at the True Thailand Classic.
The 51-year-old finished T7 but looked set for a memorable Sunday after kicking off his final round at Black Mountain with back-to-back par breakers. However, the birdies dried up after that and he slipped back from the eventual winning score of 16-under with bogeys at three, five and nine. Jiménez finished with nine straight pars to post 13-under 275. He cut a frustrated figure over the final few holes as he failed to cash in on some excellent driving, the stats showing he missed just a single fairway all day. The veteran Spaniard will stay in Asia to contest next week's Hero Indian Open. Feb 15 - 7:12 AM

A flu-hit Miguel Angel Jiménez returned a 6-under-par 33-33=66 on Friday to take the halfway lead at the True Thailand Classic on 11-under 133.

The 51-year-old Spaniard had felt under the weather during his opening 67 and said after today's lap of Black Mountain, "I have the flu and I’m very bunged up and slept terribly last night, but apart from that I’m fine." His golf was more than fine as he circled eight birdies. His only bogey came at the ninth, the scene of his holed second shot yesterday when he celebrated the eagle-2 with a jig in the fairway. Jiménez split just six (of 14) fairways but found 13 greens in regulation. His short game was sharp as he went 5-for-6 in scrambling. "I played very solid and made a lot of birdies," he said of his round. "I was hitting shots right at the flags today. You need to be in the right places on the greens to put the ball on the right side of the hole, because the putts are very fast - I like it."

Miguel Angel Jiménez was reportedly under the weather but dug deep to shoot an opening 5-under-par 33-34=67 at the True Thailand Classic.

Believed to be suffering a stomach complaint, the Spaniard was slowly into his stride at Black Mountain and followed four straight pars with a bogey at five. He got back into red figures with birdies at the next two holes and gave his day a huge lift by holing out for an eagle-2 at the 474-yard par-4 ninth. The 21-time European Tour winner made another gain at the 13th and signed off with a final birdie at 18 to finish just three off the pace. Jiménez found 14 greens in regulation and was 3-for-4 in scrambling.

After winning the Champions Tour's season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship in Hawaii, Miguel Angel Jiménez is back in more familiar company this week.

He lines up for just the second time at Kuala Lumpur G&CC to contest the Maybank Malaysian Open, his previous appearance producing a T46 in 2006. Jiménez is still only dipping his toes on the seniors tour, although with great success. He's lined up just three times with the roundbellies and won twice, the most recent win coming via a one-stroke win over Mark O'Meara at Hualalai Golf Club a fortnight ago. The veteran won't commit further to seniors golf as he's still a force on the European Tour. Last year he set a new record for the oldest winner when capturing his home Spanish Open at the age of 50 years, 133 days. His most recent European Tour outing was a T20 in elite company in Abu Dhabi three weeks ago.
Feb 2 - 4:20 PM

Miguel Angel Jiménez blew kisses to the cameras after making the second ace of the day at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship.

The popular Spaniard's tee-shot at the 177-yard par-3 15th took one hop on the green and vanished underground to spark joyous celebrations. It followed the hole-in-one made by England's Tom Lewis at the seventh hole earlier in the day. Jiménez had started his first round with a double bogey seven but birdies at 11, 12 and 13 and the '1' at 15 repaired the damage and then some. Only Colin Montgomerie (nine) has made more holes-in-one on the European Tour than Jiménez (eight). Expect MAJ to light up a celebratory cigar straight after his round.

Miguel Angel Jiménez will have a crack at Sheshan International at this week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

MAJ is leaking oil ahead of this week's WGC event. The Spaniard has finished 45th or worse in 10 of his last 11 starts, worldwide. At the age of 50, Jiménez still has the winning pedigree, still plays a carefree game, but doesn't contend on a weekly basis. Given the nature of a no-cut event, anything is possible this week, but gamers should look elsewhere if they want a reliable option.

Miguel Angel Jiménez will likely be a crowd favorite as he readies for The Open Championship at Hoylake.

MAJ is sure to draw a crowd for his stretching theatrics before his daily warm-up session, but there is a real chance his game could allow him to contend. He's made the cut in his last five Opens, with none worse than a T27 in 2010. In several of those journeys, he's hung around the top of the leaderboard until well into the weekend only to fade.

It took 27 tries, but Miguel Angel Jiménez is a winner of the Open de España for the first time.

The Spaniard is ageless. He turned 50 in January, contended at the Masters (placing fourth), won in his debut on the Champions Tour and got married. Today's title is his first in his national open and 21st on the European Tour. He's the first 50something to win on the circuit, in the process extending his own record as the tour's oldest champion. MAJ is also now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational this summer. "There's no words to describe what it means to me, you need to be into my skin but I'm not going to let you!" Jiménez quipped after eliminating Richard Green and 36- and 54-hole leader Thomas Pieters on the first playoff hole at PGA Catalunya Resort in Girona. The trio completed regulation in 4-under 284. "All the victories are special, all are unique, some of them give you more money, some less, but all of them are important. You play to win and when you make it you have to appreciate it."

Miguel Angel Jiménez is not included in the published field of next week's PLAYERS.

The 50-year-old stud hasn't teed it up at TPC Sawgrass since a T32 in 2008, so this isn't news. The week after finishing fourth at the Masters, he won in his debut on the Champions Tour.

Miguel Angel Jiménez carded a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in the final round of the Masters to take the clubhouse lead at 4-under 284.

The Spaniard squared three bogeys to just one birdie on his first five holes and was fading fast. He turned things around at Augusta National on the back nine, gathering four birdies to just one bogey on his return to the clubhouse. He had a chance to take it one deeper with a good look at birdie on 18, buthe settled for par and a top-five finish. He will have a invitation to the 2015 Masters by virtue of a top-12 finish.

Miguel Angel Jiménez blitzed Augusta National Golf Club for a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Masters and takes the clubhouse lead at 3-under 213.

Jiménez gathered seven birdies on his round, surrendering his lone bogey at the par-3 12th. Typically when a player goes low at Augusta, he makes quick work of the par 5s. That wasn't the case for the Spaniard, as he was a modest 1-under on the par 5s and an eye-popping 5-under on the par 4s. It seems unlikely that he will sit atop the leaderboard at day's end. The 36-hole leader, Bubba Watson, was just teeing off on the opening hole when Jiménez posted.

Miguel Angel Jiménez carded a 1-under-par 32-39=71 in his opening round of the Masters.

The Spaniard is making his debut as a senior in this event, but that didn't slow him down today, at least early. After a standard-issue birdie-4 at the second hole, he chipped in for birdie from in front of the green at the downhill, par-3 sixth. Birdies at 7 and 9 trailed to move him into the lead at the time. However, he opened Amen Corner bogey-double bogey and surrounded that slip with nothing but pars on the entire second nine. He collected 12 greens in regulation and finished three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Miguel Angel Jiménez makes his way back to Augusta National for his 15th Masters.

Jiménez missed last year due to injury, but made the cut in each of the eight previous editions immediately before that. Though he has three top 10s, his best finish was a tie for eighth in 2008. He flashed some form at Doral in the WGC-Cadillac Championship when he tied for 13th.

Miguel Angel Jiménez conjured a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

The most interesting golfer in the world traded a bogey for a birdie on his opening nine then went blemish-free with three bogeys on the inward nine to end his day. It's possible that his highlight of the day wasn't even a birdie, as he got up-and-down for par from 106 yards on the par-4 18th, holing a 16-foot putt to end his day. He reaches the 54-hole mark at even-par 216.

Miguel Angel Jiménez crafted a bogey-free, 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, finishing two strokes off the lead.

He went 6-for-6 in scrambling, circled two birdies, and was perfect from inside 13 feet, but all of his conversions sat inside the 10-foot radius. The 50-year-old Spaniard owns enough moxie for the entire field, so as long as the course remains challenging -- and it will thanks to the wind -- don't be surprised if he lurks all weekend.
