Jimenez eyes Ballantine's atonement
Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez is hoping to go one better at this year's Ballantine's Championship after he dramatically missed out by one shot to Lee Westwood in 2011.
The 18-time European Tour winner Jimenez, 48, was within a whisker of forcing a play-off with the then world No 1 but he overhit into a greenside bunker on the last hole at Blackstone Golf Club, near Seoul.
"It will be nice to go back to Blackstone and try to go one better than last year," Jimenez said, in comments released on Thursday by organisers ahead of this year's edition from April 26-29.
"It was obviously disappointing to miss out on the win, but you can never be too upset when you're beaten by the world No 1.
"I played quite well on the last day, but the putts didn't drop. I left myself with a difficult bunker shot on the last hole and didn't manage to get up and down, but it was still a good week and a great experience."
Reigning British Open champion Darren Clarke, 2009 PGA Championship winner YE Yang and England's Ian Poulter and Paul Casey are also in this year's field, along with Australia's Adam Scott.
