KAUPULEHU-KONA, Hawaii (AP) Miguel Angel Jimenez rallied to win the Champions Tour's season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship, birdieing six of the final nine holes Sunday for a one-stroke victory over Mark O'Meara.
The Spaniard closed with a 6-under 66 for his second victory in three career starts on the 50-and-over tour. He broke a tie with O'Meara with a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th.
"It was uphill against the grain and into the wind," said Jimenez, a 21-time winner on the European Tour. "I knew I had to hit it hard."
