RICHMOND, Va. (AP) --- Miguel Angel Jimenez tied the course record with a
9-under 63 on Monday to win the rain-delayed Dominion Energy Charity Classic,
the opening event of the PGA Tour Champions' three-tournament Charles Schwab
Jimenez made nine birdies on the County Club of Virginia's James River course
and beat second round co-leader Tommy Tolles by two shots. Tolles made an eagle
on the par-5 last hole to finish at 4 under and beat Colin Montgomerie by one
shot and earn a spot in the second event in the playoffs.
Woody Austin, Bernhard Langer and Scott Parel, the other co-leader after two
rounds, finished five shots back.
Austin was on his way to a possible second-place finish at 8 under after 16
holes, but he three-putted the final two holes.
