The 48-year-old golfer, who became the oldest winner in European Tour history when he won in Hong Kong last month, was skiing in the Sierra Nevada mountains when he broke his right leg.

Jimenez, one of Jose Maria Olazabal's vice-captains at the Ryder Cup in Medinah, was taken or an X-ray before being transferred to a hospital in Malaga

"I was going down a hill and lost control and when I fell it was very sore," said Jimenez.

"I was playing very well at the end of the season so it is not a good time for me to get injured."

Krestanovich will now turn his attention to Saturday's visit of Belfast Giants.
