Jimenez wins Spanish Open, 1st Tour winner over 50
GIRONA, Spain (AP) Miguel Angel Jimenez won the Spanish Open on Sunday after a three-way playoff to become the European Tour's first winner over the age of 50.
Jimenez extended his own record as the oldest European Tour winner at 50 years and 133 days old.
Jimenez beat Thomas Pieters of Belgium and Australia's Richard Green in a playoff after he was the only one to make par on the first extra hole. All three players finished on 4-under 284.
It was the Spaniard's 21st European Tour win and his second of the season after he won at Hong Kong also following a playoff.
Pieters led by two shots going into the round but only managed a 3-over 75 despite an eagle on 15. Jimenez shot a 73, while Green carded 72.
