Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez added his name alongside some incredible company in the Masters record books on Saturday.

When Jimenez signed for a 6-under 66 in the third round -- the low round this week so far -- he tied Ben Hogan and Fred Couples for the low score by a player 50 or older in the Masters.

Jimenez, who turned 50 on January 5, had a remarkable seven birdies and a single bogey in the third round.

At 3 under for the tournament, Jimenez was just three shots behind 36-hole leader Bubba Watson, who was teeing off just as Jimenez's round ended.

The best finish for Jimenez at the Masters in 14 previous starts is a tie for eighth in 2008.
