Miguel Ángel Jiménez makes history
At the Hong Kong Open
Miguel Ángel Jiménez has become the oldest player in the history of the European Tour to shoot a round of 63 or lower.
The 53 year old finished his 2017 UBS Hong Kong Open with the lowest round of the week – a 63 - 63 to finish in a tie for seventh place, at eight under par overall.
Miguel's 63 was only the third time someone over the age of 50 has shot 63 or lower. He did it at the 2014 Turkish Airlines Open, with Bernhard Langer being the other player to do so at the 2008 Hong Kong Open.
"I love to come here," Jiménez said. "This golf course always makes me feel good because you need to play the game here. It's not only about hitting it hard, you also need to control the ball. I was hitting the ball so well today and really enjoying myself out there."
