Anything Miguel Angel Jimenez does these days turns to pure gold, from his stretching to his golf to his celebrations.

Jimenez, playing in the afternoon on Friday at Pinehurst No. 2, wasn't having his best day when he got to the par-3 fourth hole, but things changed after he found the greenside bunker.

Jimenez knocked his bunker shot out, watched it roll towards the hole and just catch enough of the lip to curl in for the unexpected birdie and a recreation of one of the best golf celebrations of all time.

Yes, that was a nod to Chi-Chi Rodriguez, the eight-time PGA Tour winner who made the sword move famous with his golf clubs. Check Jimenez above, and look at the famous move by Chi-Chi below.
