Miguel Angel Jiménez


Miguel Angel Jiménez (birth: January 5, 1964) is a Spanish golfer.

Jiménez first played on the PGA 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. During a fairly up and down career he has so far had three main periods of success. In 1994 he finished fifth on the European Tour order of merit. After some weaker seasons 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 also came second in the WGC-American Express Championship, which is one of the elite World Golf Championships events, and made his Ryder Cup debut. In 2004 he once again bounced back from some modest seasons, notching up another fourth place finish on the order of merit, and winning four European Tour events, which was more than any other player. He maintained his form into 2005, winning the Omega Hong Kong Open, which is a PGA European Tour event, and the Celtic Manor Wales Open.
