Martin Kaymer enjoyed a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of The Honda Classic.
This is his first PGA TOUR starts since the WGC-HSBC Championship in November, but he finished no worse than T4 in his last four starts dating back to a co-runner-up at the Thailand Golf Championship in mid-December. He circled four birdies at PGA National today, including conversions from 10'4" and 26'5" at Nos. 15 and 6, respectively. At the time he signed his card, he held a share of the clubhouse lead, but that has since gone by the boards. Feb 26 - 1:14 PM

Martin Kaymer returns to PGA National's Champion Course for his third consecutive Honda Classic appearance.

Kaymer has yet to crack the top 50 at the Honda but his recent form overseas is appetizing. His last three starts internationally have yielded finishes inside the top five. The German is 16 for his last 20 on the PGA TOUR and should be highly targeted this week, regardless of his course history.

Martin Kaymer blazed the Emirates for an 8-under-par 31-33=64 to banish the memories of his collapse in Abu Dhabi and finish T4 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

In his first Sunday outing since blowing a 10-shot lead two weeks ago, Kaymer proved a point. His 64 was his lowest round in this tournament and lifted him to a third straight top five worldwide. The German was out in 31 after birdies at two, four, eight and nine and found another quartet of par breakers on the back nine. They came at 10, 13, 16 and 17 as he raced through the field to finish at 15-under 273 having started the day outside the top 30. The two-time major champion will now switch his attention to the PGA TOUR, starting with the Honda Classic on February 26.
Feb 1 - 7:54 AM

Martin Kaymer put his Abu Dhabi collapse firmly behind by shooting an opening 5-under-par 34-33=67 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

This was Kaymer's first round since he blew a 10-shot lead on the last day of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship and there was no sign of any hangover. The German had given a masterclass in positive, reasoned thinking in his pre-tournament press conference and backed up his words in a fine display which featured seven birdies and two bogeys. Kaymer was fast out of the blocks with birdies at 10, 12 and 13 before giving one back at 14. He made further par breakers at 17 and 18 and then, on a quieter second nine, circled birdies at five and eight against a bogey at six. His 67 left him two shots behind early clubhouse leaders Nicolas Colsaerts, Andy Sullivan and Lee Westwood.

What appeared a victory lap turned into a nightmare for Martin Kaymer as he lost the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship after blowing a final-day 10-shot lead.

The German closed with a 3-over 36-39=75 to slump to third place on 17-under 271 -- two behind surprise winner Gary Stal. Kaymer was in total control as he extended his six-shot overnight lead to 10 with birdies at three of the first four holes. But his bid to claim a wire-to-wire victory and fourth Abu Dhabi crown in total unexpectedly derailed with a bogey at six, a double bogey at 9 and a title-wrecking triple at the 13th. Kaymer could never recover from that setback and five closing pars saw him finish third.
Jan 18 - 8:20 AM

With a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in his third round of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, overnight leader Martin Kaymer extended his margin to six strokes.

The German is bidding for the outright wire-to-wire title at Abu Dhabi Golf Club. Today, he hit 15 greens in regulation, took a minuscule 25 putts and buried seven birdies. Through 54 holes, he's missed only seven GIR. Kaymer has also played his last 42 holes in bogey-free 16-under. He's 20-under 196 entering the finale. Belgium's Thomas Pieters sit alone in second place at 14-under 202. Rory McIlroy back-peddled on Saturday with a 1-under 71. At 12-under 204 and tied for fifth, he'd need a combination of factors to catch his fellow Ryder Cupper. It was just one week ago that Charl Schwartzel slept on a five-shot lead at the South African Open Championship before losing in a playoff to Andy Sullivan, who charged back from seven back on Sunday.

Overnight leader Martin Kaymer tacked on a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship to kick clear of the field.

Kaymer's bogey-free morning round saw him reach the midpoint at 13-under, good enough for a four-shot lead when he handed in his card. For the second day running, the German hit 16 greens in regulation while two sand saves meant he completed his 18 holes without a blemish. Kaymer, who started the second round with a one-shot lead after an opening 64, is bidding to win this event for the fourth time. He was the halfway leader in two of those victories (2008 and 2011).
Jan 16 - 4:26 AM

Martin Kaymer is tracking a fourth victory at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship after grabbing the first-round lead.

Kaymer is the ultimate course horse in Abu Dhabi with victories in 2008, 2010 and 2011 along with a second spot in 2009. And he's in position again after an 8-under-par 33-31=64 on his opening lap of the par 72. The US Open champion birdied four of the first eight holes before a bogey at nine halted his progress. But he hit the birdie trail again on the back nine and circled six more against a single blemish at 12 to surge past early clubhouse leader Thomas Pieters. The 64 is the German's low round in Abu Dhabi; he's previously carded 65 on three occasions.

Martin Kaymer has elected not to tee it up in next week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Kaymer qualified (convincingly) with titles at THE PLAYERS and the U.S. Open, but like many Europeans, he's slated to open 2015 at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on Jan. 15-18. So, his first appearance at Kapalua will have to wait for another year. Given his relative inconsistency in the long-term, gamers cannot expect a repeat of his success last year. Instead, consider the 30-year-old as a potential threat in weekly formats.
Jan 2 - 6:05 PM

Martin Kaymer rinsed his third into the green at the par-5 18th hole and concluded the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions with a 1-over-par 34-37=73.

The German started the day two strokes off the pace of 54-hole leader Graeme McDowell and played in the final threesome with the Ulsterman. Kaymer promptly opened par-birdie-par-birdie to sit atop the leaderboard. He faltered to the tune of three bogeys while peppering in two birdies until the chance to join a playoff emerged at the 72nd hole. Instead, he clipped a wedge over the green and into the pond. With the air deflated, he'd go on to pencil in a 7 to post 8-under 280 for the week and finish in a three-way share of sixth place. It's his fourth top 10 in five trips to Sheshan International, including a win in 2011.

Martin Kaymer smoothed a 6-under-par 32-34=66 for his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions to post 9-under 207, good for sole possession of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

After opening with a 69 on Thursday, the two-time major champion settled for an even-par 72 in the second round. He's unlikely to sleep on the overnight lead, but current leader Graeme McDowell will at least have some pressure if he's going to convert on a wire-to-wire title. Kaymer erased a lone bogey at the par-4 15th hole with seven birdies, including a walk-off 4 at the 18th hole.

Martin Kaymer chased his opening 69 at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions with an even-par 36-36=72 to post 3-under 141 at the halfway point.

The languid German split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation at Sheshan International today, but he managed only two birdies. Worse yet, he erased them with a pair of bogeys. With one one running away from the field, he wasted an opportunity to crash the leaderboard. Instead, he settled three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. So, he's still in position to strike on Moving Day, but if he comes up just short of winning, today's effort could be the culprit.

Martin Kaymer fashioned a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, posting up two shots off the overnight lead.

After victory at the Ryder Cup, Kaymer missed the cut at the Dunhill Links. He hadn't played since, so it's refreshing to see him dust off the rust in China. He converted six birdies, only two of which on par 5s, while scattering three bogeys. Facts are facts, but it's still hard to believe that other than his wins at THE PLAYERS and U.S. Open, he has only one top 10 anywhere in the last 12 months. If you knew that he tied for seventh at the Deutsche Bank Championship, you probably won your league with him on your roster.

Martin Kaymer returns to Sheshan International Golf Club for the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Expect Kaymer to be licking his chops, as Sheshan International has proven to be on of his most lucrative stops throughout the years. In addition to his win in 2011, he has two other top-eight finishes in four appearances. He also finished alone in ninth at Mission Hills in 2012. His last tournament was the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, where he missed the cut.

Martin Kaymer has no problem in defeating Bubba Watson 4 and 2 in singles at the 40th Ryder Cup.

Watson didn't have it today, but it may not have mattered against the German, who recorded an eagle and five birdies at Gleneagles today. After both opened birdie-par, Kaymer won four consecutive holes to stake a 4-up lead through six. Watson won the par-4 seventh with par, but Kaymer responded with a birdie win at the par-4 eighth. They halved the next six holes to move the lefty to dormie. Watson won the par-4 15th with a birdie, but Kaymer ended the drama with a dramatic chip-in from a side-hill lie in the rough beside the green at the par-5 16th. After the eagle disappeared, Europe led 13-7. For the week, Kaymer went 1-1-2. Watson settled at 0-3-0.
