Jimenez makes winning debut
Just a week after finishing fourth at the Masters, Miguel Angel Jimenez kicked off life in the Champions Tour in style by winning the Greater Gwinnett Championship.
The Spaniard beat Germany’s Bernhard Langer by two shots in Georgia to become only the 18th player to claim a debut win on the senior American circuit and only the third with a wire-to-wire victory in his first start.
Jimenez, who won 20 times on the European Tour, started the day one shot ahead of Langer and he carded a flawless five-under-par 67 to finish at 14 under for the tournament.
The 50-year-old, the oldest player to win on the European Tour, has already set his sights on a fifth Ryder Cup.
“I’m playing very well and now you don’t know what to do, but I need to do my points for the Ryder Cup,” he told the Golf Channel.
Defending champion Langer carded a final round of 68 to finish two strokes ahead of American Jay Haas while Fred Couples was another shot adrift after a 70 on Sunday.
