Miguel Angel Jimenez opens lead in Senior British Open

Miguel Angel Jimenez opened a four-stroke lead in the Senior British Open, shooting a 7-under 65 on Saturday in mild conditions to fall one short of matching the Carnoustie Golf Links record.

The 52-year-old Spaniard had a bogey-free round in wind at 6-12 mph on the mostly cloudy afternoon. He had an 11-under 205 total after opening 70-70, putting him in position for his first major title.

"Tonight, I'm going to do exactly the same thing I did the previous night," Jimenez said. "I go with my friends, we go to a nice diner with a nice bottle of Rioja and after that I'm going to have a bit, fat cigar with a nice malt whisky."
