Spain’s Miguel Angel Jiménez is looking to make it fourth time lucky in the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club from January 15-18.

“I’ve come close to winning the Falcon Trophy before but I intend to finally get my name on it in 2009,” said the 15 time European Tour champion.

Following his tied fifth finish at the inaugural Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in 2006, Jiménez came close to National Course glory in 2007 when he finished joint second at 16-under par, just one shot behind England’s Paul Casey who is also confirmed for the Championship’s fourth edition.

“It’s not easy to win because all the top Tour players like starting their season in Abu Dhabi – the climate is great and it really is the perfect place to hone your game after the winter off-season,” added Miguel.

The amiable Spaniard has had an eventful 2008, finishing in the top ten in two of the year’s Majors, the Masters Tournament and US Open. He also tasted success in the Omega Hong Kong Open and BMW PGA Championship, the latter securing his place in Nick Faldo’s European Ryder Cup Team.

However, if the 44 year old is to launch his 2009 season with a maiden Abu Dhabi win, he’ll need to be on peak form to conquer a world-class field.

As well as his Ryder Cup team-mates, world number two Sergio Garcia, triple Major winner, Padraig Harrington, world number eight, Henrik Stenson and world number 26, Ian Poulter, reigning Masters champion, Trevor Immelman, also stand in Jiménez’s way.
