Miguel Angel Jimenez picked a nice time for his best round ever at Augusta National.

His 66 on Saturday was the round of the week and just the third time someone over the age of 50 had shot 66 in this tournament. The other two are Ben Hogan in 1967 and Fred Couples in 2010.

Jimenez rocketed up the leaderboard and will likely be in one of the final groups on Sunday as he sits at 3 under overall for the event.

The Spaniard is a fan favorite on Twitter so a Sunday showing for him on national television should be fun.

Plus, he's one of the two best players in the field, you could argue, without a major.

Only Jimenez (61) and Lee Westwood (63) have played in 60 or more majors in their careers without having taken one to the house.

The world's most interesting golfer had a decent first nine but then he just got silly on the second with five birdies in his first seven holes. Here's a look:

Win or lose, we know where the party's going to be on Sunday night.
