Miguel Angel Jimenez has the most unique warm up routine in the game of golf

Miguel Angel Jimenez is known as one of the the most extrovert and gregarious characters in the game of golf, and the Jimenez warm up is certainly in keeping with that reputation.

The 50-year-old - known for his love of cigars and wine - has claimed 21 titles on the European Tour through his career.

He triumphed in the 2012 Hong Kong Open to become the European Tour's oldest winner, and broke his record twice with further victories at the 2013 Hong Kong Open and 2014 Open de Espana.

And, what's more, he's also in posession of the most unique and extravagant warm-up routine in the game of golf - something that's only served to add to his position as one of golf's most colourful characters.
