St. Andrews - Miguel Angel Jimenez won the Senior British Open on Sunday, edging defending champion Bernhard Langer by one shot.

Jimenez dropped only one stroke en route to a final round 3-under 69 and ended on 12-under 276 at the historic Old Course.

The Spaniard played the sort of round every professional golfer dreams of on the final day at St. Andrews, and often in unpleasant - occasionally vicious - weather conditions.

Langer shot a 68 to come second.

Americans Kirk Triplett (69) and Scott McCarron (68) tied for third alongside Canada's Stephen Ames (69).

All three finished on 10 under.
