Kudos to the European Tour’s social media guru Jamie Kennedy, who is by far the best in the golf business, for getting Miguel Angel Jimenez to strap on a GoPro harness, so that we can get a glimpse of his warm-up stretching routine from a perspective that we never have before. The subtitles that were added came in handy, too.

Ben An, a rookie on the European Tour, fired an impressive bogey-free, seven-under 65, the low score on Sunday, to capture the BMW PGA Championship by six shots over Miguel Angel Jimenez and Thongchai Jaidee. He carded a 21-under total for the championship, the lowest in relation to par in the history of the tournament, beating the previous best of 19-under by Anders Hansen in 2002 and Scott Drummond in 2004.

God.

God.

There are many ways to qualify — excuse me, receive an invitation to the hallowed grounds of Augusta National to play in the Masters Tournament every April. Well, actually, there are 19 different ways, one of which is to finish in the top 50 in the Final Official World Golf Ranking for the previous calendar year.

Well, finally, there are no more golf tournaments with world ranking points this year — that list was published on Monday, and 14 players were added to the 2014 Masters field.

Jimenez knows how to live

Miguel Angel Jimenez enjoys a fine cigar and a glass or five of Rioja, and he has the best pre-warmup stretching routine on the planet. He’s also leading the Open at the halfway mark. Jimenez, who teed off in perhaps the toughest conditions of the day, survived two brutally difficult tests of golf, posting an even-par 71 after opening with three-under 68 at Muirfield.
