VIDEO: World's Most Interesting Golfer Turns 50
CIGARS WANT TO BE SMOKED BY HIM. Television networks interrupt their broadcasts to cover his stretching. Boaters tie up along golf courses just to watch him stroll the fairways.
He is the most interesting golfer in the world.
Lover of cigars, wine, cars and golf, Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez turned 50 on January 5. If you want to be like Miguel, you can start by imitating his warm-up routine, which he demonstrates in the above video.
Jimenez does not appear to be slowing down as he reaches the half century mark, at least not on the golf course. He has won 20 tournaments on the European Tour. Thirteen of those titles have come after turning 40. "The Mechanic" has eight top tens in the majors and has played on four Ryder Cup teams.
"It just gets better and better," Jimenez said after his most recent victory a month ago at the Hong Kong Open. "I love Hong Kong and this course."
