His best finish in a Major Championship was a tie for 2nd behind Tiger Woods at the 2000 US Open at Pebble Beach. At the end of 2012, Jimenez broke his leg in a skiing accident. He bounced back to win two events since. He has captured the Hong Kong Open on four occasions. He holds the record for the oldest winner on the Tour. He became eligible for the Champions Tour in 2014 and won on his debut at the Greater Gwinnett Championship by two strokes over Bernhard Langer.
