Martin Kaymer dug deep to craft a level-par round of 36-36=71 on day three of the Open de Espana, which left him on 2-over 215 and T2 heading into the final round.
Coming off yet another week of disappointment at Augusta National, the German has found solace in grinding it, not only on the range - where he has put in very long hours - but on a course that has taken its toll on those who lack patience. Kaymer hit just 5 of 14 fairways Saturday, and made just 9 greens in regulation, but he fought for his score on the greens, taking 27 putts and going 6-for-9 when scrambling. He had a brace of red numbers on 4 and 5, gave the shots back on 7 and 9. Another brace came on 10 and 11, the former thanks to an approach to 18 inches, before two more bogeys on 12 and 14. Kaymer is seeking a first win since he claimed the Players’ Championship and U.S. Open in May and June of 2014. He, Joost Luiten and Andrew Johnston are in a tie for second, one back of leader Mike Lorenzo-Vera. Apr 16 - 12:34 PM

Martin Kaymer shook off his latest Masters disappointment with a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the opening round of the Open de Espana at Valderrama.

A Saturday 79 meant the German could only manage T49 at Augusta National but that was quickly forgotten when he opened his bid for victory here with three birdies out of the gate at 10, 11 and 12. Kaymer bounced back from a bogey at 14 with a birdie at 17 to turn in 33 but it was something of a grind after that as he played Valderrama's opening nine in 36 with eight pars and a bogey-6 at 4. Still, that adds up to a solid day's work and puts him just three shots behind clubhouse leader Stuart Manley. The two-time major champion, who outscored playing partner Sergio Garcia by six shots, hit 7 (of 14) fairways and found 12 greens in regulation. He was 4-for-6 in scrambling.

Martin Kaymer is still in search of his first top 25 at Augusta National Golf Club as he preps for this week's Masters.

Kaymer has a long list of accomplishments but the Masters is one event that has always alluded him. He missed the cut in his first four visits before rattling off finishes of T44-T35-T31 from 2012 through 2014. The German returned to his missed-cut ways in last year's edition. In 22 rounds at AGNC, he sports just two red numbers. Course history isn't everything, but this history is too strong to ignore. Gamers should look elsewhere when setting rosters this week.

Martin Kaymer kicked off his week at the Valspar Championship with a 1-under-par 36-34=70, currently four strokes off the co-leaders in the clubhouse.

The German striped eight (of 13) fairways on the round, parlaying that into 11 GIRs. The flat stick was very hit-or-miss today as he missed from inside four feet in two of his first four holes. He figured it out from there and rolled in three putts from nine feet or longer. The longest came from 11'8" for birdie on the par-3 17th hole. Kaymer is making his third career Valspar appearance, with a MC/2013 and T20/2011 already on his resume.

Martin Kaymer made it a four-way tie for the lead at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai after carding a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in Thursday's first round.

Kaymer matched the scores of Marcus Fraser, Ian Poulter and Andy Sullivan with a lap of the Earth course which featured eight birdies. He completed his set at 18 after earlier picking up shots at 1, 3, 7, 11, 12, 14 and 15. The German dropped shots at 6 and 16. Kaymer split just 8 (of 14) fairways but hit 17 greens in regulation. He's beaten today's 66 just once in six previous starts at this event but, despite that third-round 64 in 2011, he's yet to finish in the top 10 at the European Tour's Race to Dubai finale.

With three birdies in his final five holes, Martin Kaymer posted a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in round two of the BMW Masters at Lake Malaren in China.

With rounds in the 60s hard to come by in windy Shanghai on Friday, Kaymer's second successive 69 advanced him nine spots to T9. He'll go into the weekend six shots behind leader Lucas Bjerreaard. The German was as far back as 2-under at one stage following a bogey-6 at the 7th but he hit back with a birdie at the next and reeled off par breakers at 14, 15 and 16 to arrive at 6-under 138. Kaymer has missed just three greens in regulation over his first 36 holes but his short game hasn't been on the same level. He's 0-for-3 in scrambling and has taken 64 putts.

Martin Kaymer won the 2011 WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International Golf Club and returns to Shanghai this week for another crack.

Kaymer lifted the trophy in memorable style four years ago when coming home in 29 to complete a closing 63 and secure victory by three shots. The German had another golden chance to win the tournament last year but, needing a birdie at the par-5 18th, he found water and swallowed a double bogey to finish T6. Overall, Kaymer has made the top 10 in five of his last six starts in this event so is likely to be one of the main European challengers in China this week. He has the added incentive of trying to capture a first win of 2015 following three top fours including a second place in September's Open d'Italia.

Former champion Martin Kaymer will seek a first win of the season when he lines up again in this week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.

Kaymer, who lifted the trophy in 2010, has let two clear winning opportunities slip from his grasp year -- the first when blowing a 10-shot led in Abu Dhabi and the second after losing a playoff at the Open d'Italia a fortnight ago having entered the back nine three in front. This week is an obvious chance for the German to remedy that as he was also runner-up in this tournament in 2008 and T7 in 2013. On his latest trip to St. Andrews (one of three courses used this week), Kaymer finished T12 in this summer's Open Championship. This event uses a pro-am format and it's a real family affair with Kaymer's father playing alongside him and the double major winner's brother acting as his dad's caddie.

Martin Kaymer crafted a 7-under-par 32-33=65 to move into a share of the lead with Romain Wattel and Jens Fahrbring after the third round of the Open d'Italia.

Kaymer's lap of Golf Club Milano was the low round of the day and vaulted him to 17-under 199 alongside the Frenchman and the Swede. Despite splitting just half of the 14 fairways, Kaymer's iron play was dialled in as he hit all 18 greens in regulation. The German set the tone with four straight birdies out of the gate before giving one back with a three-putt bogey at No. 5. He responded with further par breakers at 8, 11, 14 and 15. Kaymer, Wattel (66) and Fahrbring (68) are two shots clear of Fabrizio Zanotti, Bernd Wiesberger and Lucas Bjerregaard, who had shared the halfway lead with Fahrbring. "I started off well," said Kaymer. "But those last three holes I think I left a couple out there especially on 16 and 17, they were good putts they just didn't go in. Sixteen was a very, very poor chip but that's okay, seven under par is a very good round."

Martin Kaymer shot a 6-under-par 33-33=66 to join the early clubhouse lead of 10-under 134 after two rounds of the Open d'Italia.

The German matched the totals of Rikard Karlberg and David Lipsky with a four at the par-5 9th. That meant he played the four long holes at Golf Club Milano in 5-under having picked up further birdies at 16 and 1 and an eagle at the gettable 503-yard 14th. That three, secured by a four-foot putt following a superb approach, sparked Kaymer into life after he'd opened with three pars and a bogey at 12. The two-time major winner hit 14 greens in regulation while, so far this week, he's 7-for-8 in scrambling.

Martin Kaymer won the 2010 KLM Open and returns to the Netherlands this week for another crack.

The German's victory came at Hilversumsche but this week's tournament takes place at Kennemer, a short par 70 with a mix of coastal and inland holes. Kaymer has played just one of his four KLM Opens there, finishing T55 back in 2008. This is his first tournament since he lost his 2015/16 PGA Tour card after not playing in the required minimum of 15 events so there could be an extra motivation to show that he can thrive back in Europe. The double major winner has shown strong form over the summer with four top 15s in his last five starts.

Martin Kaymer shot 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 8-under 132 at the midpoint, three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He hit 13 greens and traded three birdies with one bogey but tumbled a bit on the leaderboard due to the low scoring. Kaymer's notable birdies tumbled in from 18'1" and 11'2" at the par-4 ninth and 13th holes, respectively. He also poured in a par save from 11 feet at the par-4 fourth hole. So, while he didn't make much noise, he didn't shoot himself out of a chance at the trophy, either.

Martin Kaymer flushed Sedgefield Country Club for a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in today's opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

A popular selection among gamers this week thanks to solid recent form and a T20 in his only previous appearance (2013) when he closed with 63. Today, the German missed only one green in regulation (at the par-4 ninth, which he bogeyed), but connected for seven birdies. Five of them found the target from outside 12 feet, including a pair ranging 22-25 feet. So, it comes as no surprise that at last check, he led the field in strokes gained: putting at 3.709. Kaymer is two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Martin Kaymer spun a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of the 97th PGA Championship to post 11-under 205, one adrift of 54-hole clubhouse leader Branden Grace.

Save for playing partner Grace's 8-under 64, Kaymer's 65 is tied second-lowest 18 of the day. He began his round at 4-under (T15) and seven back. The 30-year-old found 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, registering 3.204 in strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time he signed his card. Kaymer circled birdies on Nos. 1, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 17, including a 34'2" gem at the latter. It was his second conversion from outside 30 feet on the day (38'1" at the par-4 eighth). He also chipped-in from the fringe 30-plus feet from the target at the 12th. The German was T4 after 54-holes (four back) at the 2010 PGA at Whistling Straits before winning in a playoff. His 65 today is a career best in the tournament (23 rounds), supplanting a 67 in round three in 2010.

Martin Kaymer suffered a walk-off double bogey-6 and settled for a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in his opening round at the 97th PGA Championship.

Back at the scene of his 2010 victory, Kaymer was enjoying his trot around Whistling Straits after circling five birdies against a single bogey over his opening 17 holes. But at the 9th, the German missed the green, three-putted and racked up a six to fall four shots behind clubhouse leader Dustin Johnson. Kaymer found just 11 greens in regulation in round one but a sharp short game limited the damage before his late slip. The other strength of Kaymer's game today was his mid-range putting with all five conversions -- at Nos. 11, 14, 16, 3 and 6 -- measuring between 12 and 16 feet.
