MADRID, Spain -- Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez has broken his right shinbone and will be sidelined for up to five months.

Jimenez said in a statement on Sunday that he had undergone surgery on his leg after injuring it while skiing on Saturday.

Jimenez said: "It will take three, four, five months for me to recover and be able to compete. 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 this 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.
