Martin Kaymer completed 36 holes of the 96th PGA Championship in 2-over-par 70-74=144, missing the cut on the number.
The U.S. Open champion and 2010 PGA champ hit only 11 greens in regulation in each round. He scrambled in the opener, suffering just one bogey while picking off a red number with two birdies. Today's experience was more evident of his recent struggles as he wiped off three birdies with two bogeys and two doubles. Other notables that failed to survive include: 144--2008 champ Padraig Harrington; Gary Woodland; Tim Clark ... 145--1997 champ Davis Love III; Tom Watson; Matt Every ... 146--2009 champ Y.E. Yang; 2011 champ Keegan Bradley; Chris Kirk; Harris English; Kevin Na ... 147--Webb Simpson; Charles Howell III ... 148--1991 champ John Daly; Jordan Spieth ... 149--John Senden ... 150--Thomas Björn ... 151--2003 champ Shaun Micheel ... 153--2002 champ Rich Been ... 157--1996 champ (at Valhalla) Mark Brooks.

Martin Kaymer turns his attention to Valhalla Golf Club this week at the 96th PGA Championship.

The 2010 PGA winner will be looking to rebound from last week, where he finished T56 in the no-cut WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. After dominating THE PLAYERS Championship and U.S. Open, he took a step back at The Open Championship. He has since admitted he was dealing with a nagging shoulder issue, but has declared himself fit for this week. Kaymer remains a high-upside option but has been very hit-or-miss at the major championships with 12 of his last 15 majors yielding finishes outside the top 30.
Aug 6 - 11:05 AM

Martin Kaymer stumbled to a 7-over-par 41-38=79 in the final round of The Open Championship to finish 70th at 8-over 296.

While there was optimism that he would ride the wave of his win at Pinehurst into Royal Liverpool this week, that didn't end up being the case. His final round featured five bogeys and two double bogeys, with just two birdies helping to offset his blunders. Not to worry, as he will have another major to chase next month at Valhalla in the PGA Championship.

Martin Kaymer turns his attention to Royal Liverpool this week for the 143rd Open Championship.

Kaymer has shown up for two of the biggest events this year, winning THE PLAYERS and U.S. Open. On the flip side, he's finished outside the top 30 in nine of his other 12 worldwide events and nine of his last 11 major championships. Kaymer has proven the form has returned this year, but gamers should not be surprised if the German finishes farther down the leaderboard this week.
Jul 15 - 1:17 PM

Martin Kaymer calmly posted a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the 114th U.S. Open to post 9-under 271 and put the lid on a wire-to-wire victory at Pinehurst No. 2.

Kaymer's lead was never in jeopardy after he signed for a second consecutive 65 early on Friday afternoon. He took a half-step backward with a 2-over 72 on a difficult day for scoring in the third round, but bounced back to circle four birdies to just three bogeys in the finale. This is Kaymer's second major championship title (2010 PGA). He's the first German to win the U.S. Open. With today's victory just five weeks after his triumph at THE PLAYERS, he's hoisted trophies on Mother's and Father's Day. Kaymer joins Rory McIlroy as the only current players under the age of 30 with multiple major championships. With today's, the 29-year-old is exempt into the U.S. Open through 2024, the Masters through 2019 and the Open Championship and PGA Championship through 2018.

Martin Kaymer stumbled to a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in the third round of the U.S. Open, but still holds 54-hole the lead at 8-under 202.

The entire field was at the German's mercy entering the weekend, leading by six at the beginning of the day, and he gave his competitors a glimmer of hope with five bogeys outpacing an eagle at the par-5 fifth and a birdie at the par-4 18th. He found trouble off the tee on a few occasions, but always seemed to limit the damage. In the end, he split 10 of 14 fairways and found 10 GIR, needing 30 putts to make it back to the clubhouse. With a five-stroke lead over Erik Compton and Rickie Fowler, he will attempt to become the eighth player to win the U.S. Open in wire-to-wire fashion. Rory McIlroy is the most recent to accomplish the feat at Congressional in 2011, while Tiger Woods has done the same on two occasions. Perhaps not so ironically, those are also the last two champions to convert a 54-hole lead.

Overnight leader Martin Kaymer kept it floored in his second round of the 114th U.S. Open, cruising to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 to post 10-under 130.

Kaymer split 12 (of 14) fairways and went 3-for-3 in scrambling while circling five birdies. He's birdied both par 5s in each round. Overall, he's missed only three of 28 fairways and 10 greens in regulation. At the time he signed his card today, he was sitting on an eight-stroke advantage over a plethora of probable also-rans. He's established the record for first 36 holes in the U.S. Open, breaking Rory McIlroy's aggregate in 2011 at Congressional by one stroke. (McIlroy currently owns the 54-hole aggregate of 199.) Today's afternoon wave is just beginning, but Kaymer also projects to set the record for largest lead after 36 holes. McIlroy (2011) and Tiger Woods (2000, Pebble Beach) currently share that mark at six strokes.

Martin Kaymer authored another fast start in a big event, this time scoring 5-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of the 114th U.S. Open, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Barring a miracle finish by a very short list of those in pursuit and still on the course, the German will sleep on a comfortable cushion. He missed only one of 14 fairways, but landed only 11 greens in regulation. Doubters of his short game should take note that he swallowed only one bogey while picking off six birdies in what was easily his lowest round of 23 career in this tournament. Remember that he opened his title at THE PLAYERS with a 63 before eventually needing an improbable long-range bender on the 71st hole to fall for par to secure a one-stroke margin.

Martin Kaymer looks to add to his growing trophy case at this week's U.S. Open.

The German star checked off the box for winning a major at Whistling Straits in the 2010 PGA Championship, then further revived his career with a win at THE PLAYERS last month. While he's never played Pinehurst No. 2, he has made five out of six cuts in the U.S. Open, highlighted by a T8 in 2010 at Pebble Beach. Already well on his way to a spot in the World Golf Hall of Fame, expect him to continue to push to be mentioned among the games elite.

Martin Kaymer liked his 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship so much that he turned in another for his second round.

Last week's champ opened on the par-4 10th hole today and, once again, traded four birdies with one bogey at Las Colinas. His longest conventional birdie measured 14'4" at the par-3 17th hole, but he also drilled home a 17-yarder from just off the green at the par-4 first. He shares the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 6-under 134.
May 16 - 1:45 PM

In his opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship, Martin Kaymer posted a 3-under-par 34-33=67.

So much for an immediate letdown. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation at TPC Four Seasons-Las Colinas today, just four days after an inspiring victory at TPC Sawgrass. He rolled in four birdies, including conversions from 29'8" and 14'4" at Nos. 3 and 10, respectively. Kaymer's only gaffe occurred at his penultimate hole of the round. His drive into the back-left pin at the par-3 17th sailed into a collection area past the green. He upped to 9'7", but two-putted from there for bogey. After closing with a birdie from 9'4" at the last, he signed his card sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead.
May 15 - 6:43 PM

Martin Kaymer held on to post a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in the final round of THE PLAYERS.

This win backs up Kaymer's titles at the 2010 PGA Championship and 2011 WGC-HSBC Champions. His 13-under 275 tally placed him one better than Jim Furyk. Kaymer was cruising with three birdies, the longest from 12'5" on the par-5 11th, and no bogeys on the card when lightning in the area stranded him on the 14th hole. The 93-minute delay had a clear impact, as he came back and double-bogeyed the relatively benign par-4 15th, and then struggled to make a par at the par-5 16th. He nearly spun his tee shot on the par-3 17th back in the water, eventually holing a 28'6" par putt to remain one up with one to play. He would put it away with an up-and-down par at the 18th. The irons were the key to his week, landing 75 percent of his greens in regulation to rank third in that category for the week. With this victory, he is exempt into the 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the next three editions of the Masters, U.S. Open and Open Championship.
May 11 - 8:21 PM

Martin Kaymer could only muster an even-par 35-37=72 in the third round of THE PLAYERS, falling into a share of the lead with Jordan Spieth at 12-under 204.

The German erased an early bogey at the par-4 fourth with birdies from 8'10" and 3'1" at the par-4 sixth and par-5 ninth. It would then be all pars at the back nine of TPC Sawgrass until the par-4 18th, where he gave back a second bogey. The duo are three clear of their nearest chasers so, while it's not a match-play situation, they do have a small margin for error between them. Kaymer is a past world number one, and a PGA Champion, but that 2010 win represents his only PGA TOUR title. He will try and double that total in Sunday's final round. It's likely that his irons will have to propel him, has he is tied for the GIR lead in the tournament.
May 10 - 7:12 PM

Martin Kaymer chased his brilliant, opening 63 at THE PLAYERS with a 3-under-par 35-34=69 to post 12-under 132 at the midpoint, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Kaymer's ball-striking wasn't as sharp today as he split only six (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, but a sub-70 is still getting the job done at TPC Sawgrass. He rolled in five birdies, including conversions from 27'11" and 30'2" at Nos. 3 and 15, respectively. He finally gave back a couple of shots, first with a three-putt bogey at the par-4 seventh, and then with a bogey-5 at 14 where he failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker, but his aggregate could very well hold overnight as the wind is expected to wreak havoc with the afternoon wave.
May 9 - 12:56 PM

Martin Kaymer authored a nearly flawless but bogey-free, 9-under-par 34-29=63 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS, good for a share of the course record.

Kaymer started on the 10th hole and went out in a rather quiet 2-under. He then found seven birdies on the front nine, settling for two-putt pars at 3 and 5. Three of his birdies disappeared from outside 13 feet, the longest measuring 25'10" at the par-4 first. Overall, he missed just two (of 14) fairways and one green in regulation. His is the fourth 63 at TPC Sawgrass, the previous coming just last year when Roberto Castro opened with it. But Kaymer's back-half 29 is the first time in tournament history that anyone has gone sub-30 on one half of the course. Prior to this week, eight golfers shared the mark at 30 for holes 1-9, the last achieved by Nick Watney in the first round in 2011.
