Death, taxes and Miguel Angel Jimenez dancing at The Open Championship. Jimenez has missed the cut at The Open in each of the last two years, but that followed up two straight top-15 appearances. He opened this year with an even-par 71, which tied world No. 3 Jordan Spieth and was two strokes better than world No. 1 Jason Day. Have I mentioned that Jimenez is 52 years old?
Jimenez holed out for an eagle on the par-5 16th hole on Thursday before making a lengthy putt on the 17th hole for birdie to come home in that respectable 71. He did Miguel Angel Jimenez things after each shot. First it was the famous Jimenez jig. Then a sheathing of his favorite weapon.
Miguel Angel Jimenez, as always, remains the best.
