Miguel A. Jimenez

One of seven brothers, Jimenez started playing golf at age 15 while picking up balls at the range and caddying. Inspired by watching the likes of Seve Ballesteros, Sandy Lyle, and Sam Torrance while serving as a caddie in the 1979 Spanish Open at Torrequebrada (Malaga), Jimenez decided to compete seriously. Has represented Spain 14 times in World Cups and has played in the Ryder Cup four times, 1999, 2004, 2008, and 2010. Is nicknamed "The Mechanic" for his preference for driving, rather than repairing, high-performance vehicles, especially his gleaming red Ferrari. He is also a lover of fine wines and Havana cigars. Jimenez first played on the European Tour in 1988 and improved steadily over the next few seasons. His first win on the Tour came at the Piaget Belgian Open in 1992. He has finished inside the top-100 on the European Tour Order of Merit every season since 1989.
In 1994, he finished 5th on the list. One highlight was scoring an exceptionally rare double eagle during the 1994 Volvo Masters at Valderrama when he holed his 3-iron second shot on the par-5 17th hole.
He bounced back in 1998 and 1999, finishing fourth on the Order of Merit in consecutive years and winning four tournaments, including the prestigious Volvo Masters.
In 1999, he finished runner-up to Tiger Woods at the WGC-American Express Championship and made his Ryder Cup debut. The next year, he again finished runner-up to Woods, this time at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.
In 2004, he emerged as the season's most prolific champion when he claimed four titles en route to finishing 4th on the European Tour Order of Merit. That mark matched his highest position.
The 2008 season was productive, too, with a pair of wins, including the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, where he defeated Oliver Wilson in a playoff. His performances earned a spot on the 2008 Ryder Cup team. He finished the season ranked 4th on the Order of Merit once more.
In February 2010, Jimenez won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, defeating Lee Westwood in a playoff, and in July, added the Alstom Open de France title, defeating Alejandro Canizares and Francesco Molinari on the first playoff hole. He won his third event of the year at the Omega European Masters, finishing three strokes ahead of Edoardo Molinari.
Jimenez became the oldest winner in European Tour history when he won the 2012 UBS Hong Kong Open at age 48 and 318 days. That was his 19th European Tour victory and first since the Omega European Masters in 2010.
2013 Notes: While skiing in southern Spain on Dec. 29, 2012, Jimenez fell and suffered a right tibial plateau fracture, which required surgery and kept him out of competition for several months. He played in the Open de Espana in April 2013, but missed the cut and returned to the European Tour in late May, finishing T-4th at the BMW PGA Championship. He was the second-round leader at the Open Championship before finishing T-13th.
2014 Notes: Turned 50 in January, then got married in April just after finishing fourth in the Masters. That performance placed him behind Sam Snead for the best finish of a player over 50. Snead finished T-3rd in 1963. A week after his Masters' finish, Jimenez played in his first PGA Tour Champions event, winning on his first try at the Greater Gwinnett Championship. A month later, won the Open de Espana and at the age of 50 years and 133 days, he became the oldest champion in European Tour history. At the Lyoness Open, he finished T-5th, and at his second Champions Tour event, the Senior Open Championship, he finished T-8th. On the European Tour, started the year by winning the Hong Kong Open.
