Throwback Thursday: Jimenez hits hole-in-one on way to Wentworth title

The Scoop

Of course the Spaniard whipped out the dance...

The Background

Miguel Angel Jimenez was chasing the leaders on the final day of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

The Spaniard was four shots behind leader Robert Karlsson at the start of the final round.

The Scene

Jimenez soon turned his fortunes around on the par-3 5th hole. He hit a 4 iron into the green with the ball bouncing twice before it made it’s way to the bottom of the cup.

This brought the Spaniard right into contention and helped him match the clubhouse lead after 72 holes with Englishman Mark Oliver.

He then won the play-off with Oliver thanks to a two putt birdie on the second extra hole, the 18th.

The Legacy

We’ve seen the cigar smoking, the stretches on the driving range and soon after his Wentworth win Miguel’s magical hole-in-one dance became a regular occurrence.

Jimenez now holds the record for the most holes-in-one on the European Tour after he carded his 10th during the third round of the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
