VIDEO: Miguel Angel Jimenez makes Spanish Open ace, wins 288 beers

Miguel Angel Jimenez made his second hole-in-one of the year on the European Tour on Friday in the second round of the Open de Espana.

Playing the par-3 eighth hole at Real Club de Golf El Prat, Jimenez holed out on the 160-yard hole with a 6-iron. The Mechanic went into a delightful celebratory dance, mixing in some Chi-Chi Rodriguez with what appears to be a moonwalk.

On top of the 1 on the scorecard, Jimenez won 288 bottles of beer. We're not sure why that number, but sounds great, even if Jimenez is more of a vino guy.

Jimenez, the defending champion this week, also made an ace in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship in January. With this ace, he now ties Colin Montgomerie's European Tour hole-in-one record with nine in his career.
