Miguel Angel Jiménez wins Cologuard Classic (and makes 2 aces in 3 days!)
Of course golf’s most interesting man won in one of the most interesting ways possible.
Miguel Angel Jiménez claimed the Cologuard Classic on Sunday, cruising to a four-shot win over Woody Austin and Bernhard Langer. But it wasn’t just that he won, it was how he won.
Jimenez put an exclamation point on his round with a hole-in-one on the par-3 14th hole on Sunday, which got him to 18 under for the tournament and is where he stayed four holes later.
But what makes this hole-in-one even sweeter is that it wasn’t even his first one of the tournament. His first ace came in the opening round on Friday, when he holed out on the 208-yard par-3 7th.
It was his first time having multiple aces in an event.
“I have 13 aces in tournaments already, but first time I have two in the same tournament,” he said. “You never think about it. You want to hit a good shot and hit it as close as possible.”
More importantly, Jimenez has now won two of the first three PGA Tour Champions events of the season.
