Miguel Ángel Jiménez makes European Tour history

Miguel Ángel Jiménez loves playing in Hong Kong. This time while visiting the country he became 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 in style by posting a low round of the week 63 to surge up the leader board and finish in a tie for seventh – eight under par overall.

Miguel’s 63 was also just the third time someone above the age of 50 has shot a 63 or lower, with the Spanish legend having already achieved the feat at the 2014 Turkish Airlines Open. Bernhard Langer was the only other player ever 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."

"I'm now going to sign some autographs," he added.

"Then I'm going to light my cigar and have a bottle of wine because the terrace here at Hong Kong Golf Club is a great place to be."
