Jiménez does Double in Portugal

Miguel Angel Jiménez became the first player on the European Tour to win two titles in 2004 when he recorded a 2 stroke victory over Terry Price at the Algarve Open de Portugal Caixa Geral de Depositos. His first win this year was at the Johnnie Walker Classic in January. His 5 under par final round of 67 brought his total for the week to 272, 16 under par.

Australian Terry Price started the day tied for 25th place, 5 shots off the pace but equalled the course record of 64 (set earlier in the day by Sweden's Robert Karlsson who finished T16) to vault himself into second spot with a 14 under total of 274. This is 43 year old Price's second year on the European Tour having played most of his career in his native Australia and Asia.
Third place was shared by Sweden's Klas Eriksson and Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell. They both had 5 under par final rounds of 67 to finish the tournament one shot back from Price, with minus 13, 275s.
