SPANISH GOLFER MIGUEL Angel Jimenez is to play in Gleneagles this weekend at the Johnnie Walker Championship in a bid to boost his Ryder Cup credentials.

Jimenez had previously stated that he would not play in Gleneagles as he was to attend his nephew’s wedding, but will now play after Peter Hansson’s narrow Czech Open win over the Spaniard pushed him down to the ninth automatic qualification spot for the Ryder Cup.

Ross McGowan, Simon Dyson and Alvaro Quiros could all still overtake the 46-year-old Spanish golfer and claim an automatic qualification spot.

“Basically Miguel feels that this is quite likely to be his last opportunity to play in the match” Jimenez’s manager Sarah Phillips told BBC Sport.

Phillips added:

He looked at the points situation on his flight back to Malaga [from the Czech Open] and then texted me to say he was going to play. It’s sod’s law that one of the players who can pass him would do so if he wasn’t there, so he wants to give himself the best opportunity.
