Mon., Dec. 31, 2012

Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez has broken his right shinbone and will be sidelined for up to five months. Jimenez said in a statement released from Madrid on Sunday that he had surgery on his leg after injuring it while skiing Saturday. Jimenez says “I was playing well, but you have to take life as it comes.” Jimenez was a vice captain on Europe’s Ryder Cup-winning team in September. In November, the 48-year-old Jimenez became the oldest European Tour winner by capturing his third Hong Kong Open title. He has 19 career European Tour titles.
