Miguel Angel Jimenez won the Chubb Classic on Sunday for his seventh PGA Tour Champions title, beating Bernhard Langer and Olin Browne with a 5-foot par putt on the first hole of a playoff.


Jimenez closed with a 5-under 66 at The Classics at Lely Resort to match Langer and Browne at 13-under 200.

”I’m working hard and I practice and go to the gym, apart from smoking and drinking,” Jimenez said. ”This is what I love to do. I love to play golf. To me, competing is my life. I go to any competition, I want to win. I working for that.”

Jimenez has won in each of his six seasons on the 50-and-over tour. The 55-year-old Spaniard won the major Regions Tradition and Senior British Open last season.

”It’s the beginning of the season,” Jimenez said. ”We are on the third tournament of the season and all the season in front of us. This is gives you the energy and the confidence coming up.”

Langer shot 68, and Browne had a double bogey on the par-4 18th in regulation for a 66.

”I didn’t hit a very good tee shot in regulation and I had a lot of club in,” Browne said. ”I was in between and I thought there was more wind, and frankly I hit a poor shot, but I ended up in a horrible situation.”

The 61-year-old Langer, the Oasis Championship winner last week near his home in Boca Raton, won the event in 2011, 2013 and 2016.

”Played some good golf, hung in there,” Langer said. ”It wasn’t meant to be.”


Kevin Sutherland and Woody Austin each shot 69 to finish a shot out of the playoff.

Stephen Ames, tied for the second-round lead with Ken Tanigawa and Glen Day, had a 71 to tie for sixth at 11 under with Tom Lehman (65), Sandy Lyle (68), Retief Goosen (69) and Colin Montgomerie (70).

Tanigawa and Day each shot 72 to finish at 10 under. Steve Stricker (70) also was at 10 under.
