Miguel Angel Jiménez is known as “The Mechanic” for his preference for driving, rather than repairing, high-performance vehicles.

The 50-year-old from Spain held off a persistent Bernhard Langer to win the Greater Gwinnett Championship.

Jimenez, who has 31 pro wins, closed the final round with a 67 to finish at 14-under 202, two strokes ahead of Langer.

Jimenez, who mostly plays on the European Tour, finished the tournament with 32 straight holes without a bogey at the TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, Georgia, just outside Atlanta.

Langer, who was consistent during the tournament, shot a 68 for the third straight day.

Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker was never a great baseball player by any stretch of the imagination. But he is very popular with Brewers fans and baseball fans in general.

For that reason, the Brewers management unveiled a statue on Friday outside of Miller Park of the 77 year old icon.

The 7-foot bronze statue feature Uecker smiling with his hands in his pockets.

Uecker, who grew up in Milwaukee, affectionately dubbed “Mr. Baseball” by Tonight Show host Johnny Carson in the 1970′s, joins Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Robin Yount and Former Brewers owner and current MLB Commissioner Bud Selig as the fourth person to have a statue outside the main gates of Miller Park.

The 90-minute ceremony included members of  Uecker’s 80′s hit television show “Mr. Belvedere”, which ran for 117 episodes from 1980 to 1985. Other attending was former Milwaukee Braves teammate Joe Torre and former Brewers star reliever Rollie Fingers.

A righty all the way, Uecker’s claim to fame is that he hit a home run off of Hall of Fame lefty Sandy Koufax. His career totals include a .200 batting average with 14 homers, 74 RBI’s while playing for the Milwaukee Braves, St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia and Atlanta. He won a World Series championship in 1964 with the Cardinals and was awarded the Ford C. Frick Award in 2003 which puts him in the broadcast wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
