Result: Miguel Angel Jimenez wins Spanish Open in playoff

Miguel Angel Jimenez triumphs in a three-way playoff to win the Spanish Open, becoming the first over-50 player to win on the European Tour.

Miguel Angel Jimenez triumphed in a three-way playoff to win the Spanish Open this afternoon, becoming the first over-50 player to win on the European Tour.

The home favourite, who turned 50 earlier this year, beat Richard Green and Thomas Pieters with a par on the first playoff hole after a tough day of scoring.

Jimenez started the day two shots behind Belgian rookie Pieters, with Green a further shot back.

Green shot a level-par 72 to finish on four-under-par, level with Jimenez (73) and Pieters (75).

Jimenez needed just one hole to clinch victory as he tapped home for par after a chip that almost went in. Green and Pieters could both only manage bogeys.

Jimenez becomes the first player to win twice on The Race to Dubai this season.
