Miguel Angel Jimenez St Andrews

Miguel Angel Jiménez takes a two-stroke lead into today’s final round of the Senior Open after keeping his composure in testing conditions on Saturday at the Old Course.

The Spaniard, who started the third round in a share of the lead with Canada’s Stephen Ames, carded a level par round of 72 as blustery winds battered the Fife coast for most of the afternoon.

 “I like this tournament and, of course, I like St Andrews,” said Jimenez. “I would love to win. I hope I can hold the trophy, I would love to. Tomorrow is going to be a tough day. It’s going to be hard and there are some top players there, all playing very well. Whoever has the most patience in these conditions will win.”
