It’s not looking like a happy new year is in store for everybody’s favourite Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez after he broke his leg while skiing in Spain.
Jimenez fractured his right tibia after a fall in the Sierra Nevada range of Andalucia yesterday. He was immediately brought down the mountain to a nearby hospital where he had surgery to nail the fracture. The expected recovery time is approximately eight weeks before the leg can bear weight again followed by a further three months of physiotherapy to achieve full recovery. This can also be subject to delays due to further surgeries to remove screws holding the tibial nail in place.
"I have been playing well but that's just the way it goes in life," Jimenez said.
