CRANS MONTANA, Switzerland, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez was back on top in the European Masters in Switzerland Saturday after shooting a 5-under-par 66.

Jimenez, at 15-under 198 for three rounds, held a one-stroke lead over fellow Spaniard Sergio Garcia and Englishman Luke Donald.

The 40-year-old Jimenez, seeking his fifth title this year, had led after the first round and Garcia after the second.

Defending champion Ernie Els shot a 66. Els was tied for fourth with Eduardo Romero, Craig Spence and Graeme McDowell, four strokes off the lead.

"My family is here and I am having a great time," Jimenez said. "It sounds like a holiday. When you are on holiday and you make a good profit as well; it is nice."
