Business as usual for Jimenez
Although Miguel Angel Jimenez can’t wait for next month’s Ryder Cup, he’ll not make any changes in his daily routine.
Although Miguel Angel Jimenez can’t wait to tee off in the Ryder Cup on October 1, he’ll not make any changes in his daily routine.
It will be business as usual for the eccentric, 46-year-old pony-tailed Spaniard who told Wales Online this week that he would “rest, exercise a little, eat well and keep doing the same things as always,”
This means, of course, that he will continue puffing his large Cuban cigars, drinking fine Rioja wine and cruising around Malaga and the Costa del Sol in one of his always gleaming red Ferraris.
To date this year he has earned more than enough to maintain his life style, much of the £1,375,661 total coming from his three wins at the Dubai Desert Classic, the French Open and the European Masters.
This week he has his eyes set on the Austrian Golf Open title as he readies himself for the Ryder Cup battle of Celtic Manor:
“I’m trying to win a fourth tournament in 2010 at the Austrian Open this week and then next week I’m resting for the Ryder Cup,” he said.
“You don’t need to change anything just because it’s the Ryder Cup.
“You are in the team because you are doing something well.
“I will have some nice red wine, maybe a special Rioja, and some good cigars because that’s what I always do. You have to be yourself.
“Golf is not only about doing one thing well, it’s about finding a good level for lots of different things.
“You need to enjoy your life. That’s very important.The golf part is pretty simple – hit the fairway, hit the green and hole the putt, easy!”
