KA'UPULEHU-KONA, Hawaii (AP) Miguel Angel Jimenez is off to another great start on the PGA Tour Champions in Hawaii.

Jimenez, the cigar-smoking, free-spirited Spaniard, birdied the par-4 18th hole in regulation for a 6-under 66 and then beat Steven Alker on the second playoff hole to win the season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai for the third time.

"It's a nice way to start a season. It's nice to be here, winning again in Hualalai," Jimenez said. "The golf course, I like it very much. The golf course is set up in beautiful condition this year. They make it very good here at Hualalai."
