Malaga’s Miguel Jimenez makes golf history

MALAGA golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez has become the first man over the age of 50 to win on the European Tour after victory at the Spanish Open.

The 50-year-old won a three-man play-off after finishing tied on four-under-par with Richard Green and Thomas Pieters.

“There’s no words to describe what it means to me,” said Jimenez. “You need to be into my skin but I’m not going to let you. It’s amazing.”

Jimenez now lies just outside the automatic qualification places for the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in September.

If he qualifies or is selected by captain Paul McGinley, Jimenez will become Europe’s oldest-ever player.
