Miguel Angel Jimenez returns from injury

April 23, 2013

Miguel Angel Jimenez, out all season because of a broken right shinbone sustained skiing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Spain over the Christmas holidays, made his return last week by playing in the Open de Espana for the 25th time.

Jimenez, who turned 49 in January, became the oldest winner in European Tour history when he captured the UBS Hong Kong Open last November. That came one week before he tied for 16th in the DP Dubai World Championship, his final event of 2012.

"My leg is improving daily," said Jimenez, a 19-time winner on the European Tour who fell 27 spots to 81st in the World Golf Rankings during his absence. "I work out every morning in the gym and I'm actually a little ahead of schedule on my rehab.

"I am not 100 percent fit, but I want to test myself and see how I feel. ... I'd hate to miss the chance of playing at El Saler."

The Spanish Open was the 599th event of his career on the Euro circuit and was played on Parador de El Saler Golf Course in Valencia, not far from his home in Malaga.

Jimenez, nicknamed "The Mechanic," shot 76-74 -- 150 and missed the cut by four strokes in his return.
