Miguel Angel Jimenez is a professional golfer from Spain. Aged 49 on January 5th 2013, he is among the most successful golfers ever. Miguel’s current estimated net worth stands at an impressive $14 Million.
One of his most impressive achievements is that, Miguel has managed to remain within the best 100 European golfers almost throughout his career. However he has seen some upswings and downswings in his playing career, which started in 1982, the year he became a professional. This is why spectators, critics and followers of the game are never quite sure how Miguel would end up performing in an event. This is one reason that makes his game very interesting. However he has been able to perform more consistently since 2004. Since then, he has been able to win many tournaments every year, because of the newfound consistency in his game.
Miguel started playing the European tour in 1988. Since then, he has had an impressive 22 professional wins. His results in major championships such as the Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, The Open Championship, and the PGA Championship have also been impressive. This has given him a lot of fame and boosted his wealth. The first Open tournament he won was in 1992. Miguel has won the Alfred Dunhill Cup and the prestigious Ryder Cup two times. He also achieved the “albatross”, which is considered very rare more than once. He has performed well in both individual and team events.
Jimenez is often referred to as “The Mechanic” as he loves driving and does not like to repair his red Ferrari.
