Miguel Angel Jimenez Makes Eagle, Sheaths His Sword

Miguel Angel Jimenez epitomizes what golf should be: fun. It’s hard to catch “the most interesting man in golf” without a smile on his face, regardless of his position on the leaderboard. Playing Pinehurst No. 2, one of the toughest courses on the planet (not for Martin Kaymer, apparently), Jimenez is still out there having a great time.

At the short par-4 third hole, Jimenez hit his tee shot into the greenside bunker. Jimenez magically holed the shot for an eagle to push him up to 3-over for the tournament.

The best part about the shot was his celebration:

Ah, the old Chi Chi Rodriguez sword-sheath celebration. It never gets old. Kaymer may be running away with it (for now), but that’s not stopping Jimenez from winning the Internet.
