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. Jan 15 - 7:00 AM

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.

Miguel Angel Jiménez enters the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship as the 10th seed in the Ben Hogan bracket.

MAJ squares off against Bill Haas in what should be a fairly even match. The Spaniard was unable to play in last year's edition at Dove Mountain, but made deep runs in his two previous trips. He lost in the third round in 2012 and made it all the way to the fourth round in 2011. We know two things. He will be well stretched, and he won't be intimidated by anything or anybody.

With a birdie on the first hole of a three-way playoff, Miguel Angel Jiménez successfully defended his title at the Hong Kong Open in Fanling.

It was just over 12 months ago that the Spaniard established the European Tour record for oldest champion in any event. Just under two months shy of his 49th birthday at the time, Jiménez recorded a one-stroke victory at Hong Kong Golf Club. That he emerged again today really isn't a surprise despite his age as it marks the fourth time he's claimed victory on this course, also hoisting the trophy in 2005 and 2008. "I love this place, I love this golf course, I love the tournament," he said. "I played so well and I holed some putts, and the one in the play-off gave me victory." Stuart Manley of Wales and Thailand's Prom Meesawat also completed regulation in 12-under 268. Jiménez buried an 18-footer for the title while both of his opponents failed to reach the green in regulation and couldn't hole out to extend. This is MAJ's 20th Euro Tour victory and first since last year's edition. He's likely to climb inside the top 40 of the Official World Golf Ranking.

Miguel Angel Jiménez will grace Sheshan International Golf Club with his presence at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

The most interesting golfer in the world was seen smoking his trademark cigar with chopsticks at last week's BMW Masters, where he finished 60th. We don't have to look very far back to find a runner-up finish at the KLM Open, so form shouldn't be a big issue. In two previous starts in this event, he owns a T38 and a T41.

Miguel Angel Jiménez concluded his week at the PGA Championship with a 3-under-par 35-32=67 to finish the tournament at 2-over 282.

It was a wild ride around Oak Hill for the Spaniard, circling seven birdies to two bogeys and a double bogey. He got on a roll with a birdie at the par-4 12th and didn't hop off until at par at the 17th. His round was the lowest of the early tee times.
