KLM Open 2013

Miguel Angel Jimenez tops leaderboard

September 13, 2013

Nearly two decades after winning this tournament, Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain shot a 6-under 64 Thursday for the first-round lead at the KLM Open.

Jimenez, the 1994 champion, is the oldest player in the field at 49 and would like to add another Spanish name to the trophy.

''Seve's first win on the European Tour was here in 1976, and Jose Maria (Olazabal) also won here in 1989,'' he said. ''So hopefully I can win here, too. That would be fantastic.''

Jimenez had two bogeys and eight birdies in a round in which he took advantage of good conditions. One of his birdies came when he holed a wedge from 40 yards at the 16th. Another on the 18th gave him the outright lead.

Robert Allenby of Australia and Gary Orr of Scotland were among a group of six players at 65 at Kennemer Golf and Country Club on the North Sea coast.

''Kennemer's special,'' Orr said. ''It's a real old-style golf course. You've got to put it in the right spots on the fairways and especially the greens. But I like the challenge. It's a pleasure to play courses like this.
