Miguel Angel Jimenez is known as golf's one of biggest characters. Whether it is smoking the best cigars, drinking the finest red wine or entertaining the crowds with his warm-up routine, the 58-year-old is certainly one of the biggest entertainers in golf.
Another aspect of Jimenez's game, is the regularity of producing hole-in-ones, with the Spaniard holding the record for the most aces on the European Tour with 10.
Now, at the Cologuard Classic on the PGA Champions Tour, the 58-year-old added yet another hole-in-one to his incredible professional career, with the Spaniard holing a 6-iron from 196-yards at Tucson National's 7th hole.

The hole-in-one was the 12th of Jimenez's career and was part of a six-under-par first round that sees the Spaniard share the lead with American, Jeff Sluman.
Jimenez, who the PGA Tour Champions' season-opening event at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship in Hawaii, simply stated after his round that the “ball never left the flag," with the ace being followed by the Spaniards trade-mark jig.
It is the first ace that Jimenez has recorded since his record breaking one at the 2015 BMW PGA Championship. Along with the ace, the 58-year-old also made an albatross at the first hole of the 2021 Senior Open Championship at Sunningdale.
