British Open: Jimenez pays way

Miguel Angel Jimenez delivered a typically controlled 66 around Sandwich yesterday. Would he celebrate with a glass of his beloved Rioja? "No, I would have had a glass of Rioja whatever I scored. And I will have one tonight," he said.

Jimenez then went off to buy an official polo shirt. A professional in the merchandise tent is a rare sight.

"My sponsors, they give me this thing," he said, pointing to his shirt.

"But I want to buy one with the logo, the Open logo, no? And I have to pay for them. Like a human, no. I am fan of Open as well, you know."
