Miguel A. Jimenez posts 65 in debut
DULUTH, Ga. -- Miguel Angel Jimenez made a dramatic Champions Tour debut, setting a tournament record with a first-round 65 on Friday in the soggy Greater Gwinnett Championship.
Jimenez, coming off a fourth-place finish in the Masters, overcame constant rain and chilly temperatures at TPC Sugarloaf. He shot a 6-under 30 on his first nine holes, including an eagle on No. 18. He reached 7 under with a birdie on No. 2 and closed with seven straight pars.
Though light rain began soon after the round began and became more intense in the afternoon, there was no delay.
