MALAGA-BORN golf veteran Miguel Angel Jimenez has won the Hong Kong open – for the second year running – and for the fourth time in his career.
Jimenez took pole position, with a cash prize of over €150,000, after finishing 12 under par.
Jimenez said: “I love this place, I love this country and I love this tournament. I’ve played very well – I holed many putts on the first play-off victory.”
Jimenez previously won the event in 2005, 2008 and 2012.
And with 13 wins since he turned 40, the tournament veteran – who will be 50 in January – has now set his sights on joining the Ryder Cup team – which would make him the oldest player to participate in the tournament.
He said: “I think this win will help my chances a lot and you never know. I would love to join the team.”
Jimenez already holds the record of oldest winner on the European tour.
