    MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ IS THE NEW KING of longevity on the European Tour.

    The 56-year-old Spaniard is playing in his 707th event on tour this week, the Hero Open at the Forest of Arden in England. Jimenez, who joined the circuit in 1983, moved ahead of previous record-holder Sam Torrance.

    The player nicknamed "The Mechanic" celebrated by putting together an 8-under 64 on Thursday.

    "It's been a wonderful day," Jimenez said at BBC Sport. "Eight under par with a beautiful summer day and especially on the 18th with all my colleagues clapping for me, it's emotional."

    A standing ovation from fellow tour pros.
