MADRID (AP) Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez has broken his right shinbone and will be sidelined for up to five months.

Jimenez said in a statement Sunday that he had surgery on his leg after injuring it while skiing Saturday. Jimenez says ``I was playing well, but you have to take life as it comes.''

Jimenez was a vice captain on Europe's Ryder Cup-winning team in September. In November, the 48-year-old Jimenez became the oldest European Tour winner by capturing his third Hong Kong Open title. He has 19 career European Tour titles.
