Valencia - Former Ryder Cup stalwart Miguel Angel Jimenez will make his comeback from a broken leg at this week's Spanish Open, the national golf federation said on Tuesday.

The 49-year-old sustained the injury while skiing in Spain's Sierra Nevada in December.

Jimenez, the oldest winner in European Tour history, will be playing in his 599th event on the circuit and looking to add to the four top-10 finishes he has amassed in 25 appearances in the Spanish Open.

This year's edition, which starts on Thursday, is being held at the Parador de El Saler course near Valencia where Jimenez tied for third place in 2001.
