Gullane, United Kingdom: Spanish veteran Miguel Angel Jimenez leads the British Open by a stroke at the halfway stage, just seven months after breaking a leg in a skiing accident.

Many thought the leg break in December would spell the end of the colourful shot-maker's career, but he was back in action in April and is now in pole position to win his first major at the age of 49.

That would make him the oldest winner of a major in golf history, surpassing Julius Boros, who won the PGA Championship in 1968 at the age of 48.
