BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Miguel Angel Jimenez wasn't about to change his evening plans even with a shot at winning his first senior major championship.

Jimenez shot a 6-under 66 on Saturday to take a three-stroke lead into the final round of the Regions Tradition and planned to relax with cocktails and a cigar.

"I think I'm going to do exactly the same thing I did (Friday) night," he said. "I'm going to have a margarita as an aperitif, and then I'm going to have a nice bottle of Rioja (wine) and smoke a big fat cigar."
