Defending champion Miguel Angel Jimenez holed a birdie on the first extra play-off hole to take victory in the Hong Kong Open on Sunday, while Australian Wade Ormsby finished in a share of eighth position. Jimenez, Thailand&aposs Prom Meesawat and Welshman Stuart Manley all ended the final day&aposs play on 12 under par, forcing a three-way fight for the win in Fanling. But it was the Spaniard who emerged triumphant as he sunk an 18-foot put to seal his fourth Hong Kong Open crown, a record-equaling feat. Dutchman Robert-Jan Derksen finished tone shot back at 11 under for the fournament following his final round of 65. Spanish duo Javier Colomo and Jose Manuel Lara ended the event on eight under alongside Angelo Que of Thailand. A further stroke back were Andrea Pavan, Richard Finch, Joel Sjoholm and Ormsby, who carded a 72, that included three bogeys and a solitary birdie. Unho Park was the next-best performing Australian in the field, finishing five-under-par overall. Compatriots Marcus Fraser and Andrew Dodt (both one under for the tournament) earned a share of 47th, while Scott Hend was well off the pace at nine over.
