One Hundred Bottles Of Red Wine For Jimenez Hole In One
Spaniard Miguel Jimenez was handed one hundred bottles of red wine on Sunday following a sublime hole-in-one at the Portugal Masters.
Jimenez hit the ace at the 186-yard par-three 8th at the Victoria Course in the Algarve. He was then rewarded for the effort with an ample selection of the finest red.
However, Jimenez could not overtake Englishman David Lynn, who won a long-overdue second Tour title at the event. Lynn, whose only previous win in almost 400 events came in the KLM Open in 2004, carded a superb closing 63 to finish 18 under par.
delighted Lynn later said: “It's your dream to win, that's what we are out here for. I have been patient, knocked on the door a lot of times, been quite consistent and to make the breakthrough again is very emotional and it's a great feeling to know I can do it again.
“I was really disappointed when I walked off the course on Saturday (after a 73). I just didn't hole any putts and made seven at 17 and thought maybe I had played myself out of it.
“Today was just a case of I've got to go out there and make as many birdies as I can. I must admit I was thinking of Scott Jamieson's 60 (in the third round). If I could do something like that who knows. The wind was up quite a bit today so eight under is a really good score.
“I really caught fire on the front nine, I was making everything I looked at, although I hit it to one foot at the first which got me off to a really good start. After that I made a couple of great putts for par to keep the momentum going and then I was making the birdie putts.”
