Penina Championship
Sat, 1st May 2004
Miguel Angel Jimenez - (Spain) Algarve Open de Portugal Penina - Portimao - Algarve - Portugal - 1st to 4th April, 2004 April teed off with the 'Algarve Open de Portugal' at the Penina and was helped by the perfect spring weather making the tournament a great success. It has been a long time since the favorite won and Miguel Angel Jimenez did it in style by exploding from the sand and tapping in for birdie on the 72nd to take the title by two strokes over another 40-year-old player, Terry Price from Australia. Terry Price's last round 64 equaled the course record set about an hour before by Robert Karlsson, propelling the former up the leaderboard from 33rd to the runner-up spot. Miguel Angel Jimenez therefore made sure of his place in this year's Ryder Cup team with this victory.
