After a one-hole playoff with Bernhard Langer and Olin Browne, Miguel Angel Jimenez came away as the 2019 Chubb Classic Champion.
Playing in the sixth-to-last group with Browne, Jimenez posted his fifth birdie of the day on No. 17 to get to 13-under. He posted the day’s only bogey-free round, a 5-under 66, and played the last 47 holes of the tournament bogey free.
Jimenez and Browne were the clubhouse leaders at 13-under after Browne double bogeyed the closing hole. It was the first time Jimenez had a share of the lead on Sunday.
In the playoff, Jimenez’s two-putt par from 30 feet secured the victory after Langer and Browne failed to get up-and-down for par on the par-4 18th, which was the second-hardest hole Sunday (4.325). Jimenez improved his playoff record to 2-2.
The win is Jimenez’s seventh on PGA TOUR Champions, and this is the sixth straight year he has won. Last year, he won his first two senior majors, the Regions Tradition and The Senior Open Championship. In the last three years, he has finished 5th (2018) and 6th (2017, 2016) in the Charles Schwab Cup.
In his other two starts at the Chubb Classic, he was runner-up in 2017 and ninth in 2018.
