Miguel Ángel Jiménez

  • 13 Champions Tour wins
  • 21 European Tour victories
  • 2022 Champions Tour ranking : 5th

Miguel Ángel Jiménez is one of the most endearing players in professional golf. The Spaniard from Malaga is a fan of fast cars and cigars. At age 50, he was able to get the better of younger opponents and won the Spanish Open in a play-off. He, thus, became the oldest winner of the European Tour. Since he switched to the Champions Tour, “The Mechanic” as he is nicknamed, has been just as prolific. Already 13 victories including one major, the Senior Open Championship. The Spaniard is in great shape as he won three times in the United States last year.

José María Olazábal

  • 29 victories worldwide including the 1994 and 1999 Masters
  • 2022 Champions Tour ranking: 95th

Being a green keeper’s son and grandson, José María Olazábal hit his first balls at the age of 2. Severiano Ballesteros, then, spotted this Basque young prodigy. Both players have maintained a perfect bond that shows when they play the doubles in the Ryder Cup together: they make an almost unbeatable pair. In 2012, he was the captain of a team who made an unthinkable comeback to beat the Americans in Chicago. Individually, Chemma (that is his nickname) won 2 Masters of Augusta and 21 tournaments on the European Tour. At the Morocco Champions 2020, in Marrakech, he was the author of a hole-in-one during the 2nd round of the PGA Champions Tour tournament.
