Martin Kaymer will tee it up in his first TOUR Championship this week at East Lake.
After a dry spell on the PGA TOUR following his U.S. Open win, he rebounded with a T7 at the Deutsche Bank Championship and a T16 at the BMW Championship. This makes Kaymer an intriguing option this week. With a win at THE PLAYERS joining his U.S. Open title, he's clearly showed up in the big events. At 14th in the FedExCup standings, a win would not guarantee him the FEC title but it would give him a fighting chance. Sep 8 - 9:17 PM

Martin Kaymer conjured up a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the third round of the BMW Championship to take control of the clubhouse lead at 8-under 202.

The German was rather slow out of the gates, playing the first six holes at Cherry Hills in 1-over with two bogeys and a birdie. He would catch fire from there, circling seven birdies over his final 12 holes. Five of his birdies were longer than 11 feet, highlighted by a 38'4" birdie on the par-4 14th hole. He landed 16 GIR and gained over two strokes with the flat stick, so all aspects of his game were in check. He will try and pick up his third PGA TOUR win of the season in Sunday's finale.

Martin Kaymer turned in a 2-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of the BMW Championship.

With a T7 at last week's Deutsche Bank Championship, the German rose to 15th in FedExCup points, so he'll be making his debut at East Lake a week from today. Meanwhile, he found 15 greens in regulation at Cherry Hills today and converted four times for birdie. His longest disappeared from 18'4" at the par-4 18th hole. It helped ease the sting of a 7 at the par-5 17th where his first three shots found fairway bunkers. Kaymer signed his card sitting just one stroke off the clubhouse lead.
Sep 4 - 6:52 PM

Martin Kaymer closed out his week at the Deutsche Bank Championship with a final-round 4-under-par 33-34=67 to take over the clubhouse at 10-under 274.

Kaymer circled five birdies, all from inside eight feet, to just one bogey on his lap around TPC Boston. Since winning THE PLAYERS Championship and the U.S. Open, the German has been largely irrelevant on the PGA TOUR. He hasn't cracked the top 55 in a TOUR event since Pinehurst. He entered the week ranked 23rd in the FedExCup standings and now sits inside the top 20. It appears he is a lock to make his way to East Lake for the TOUR Championship.

Martin Kaymer returned to our consciousness in the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship after which he signed for a 5-under-par 31-35=66.

Kaymer has been so immensely polarizing this year that you have to wonder what it's like for him when he turns in for the evening. His only top 10s of the last nine months are his victories at THE PLAYERS and U.S. Open, neither a small achievement. Today's loop of TPC Boston is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 65 at Pinehurst in June. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit only 11 greens in regulation, but the German finally capitalized on his looks for four birdies to complement a 14-yard hole-out for eagle at the par-5 18th. He also recorded a zero-putt birdie from five yards at the par-4 fifth. At 5-under 137, Kaymer sits just three swings adrift of the overnight co-leaders.
Aug 30 - 7:02 PM

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. All 20 club professionals also missed the cut.

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.
Jun 12 - 6:48 PM

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.
Jun 11 - 10:32 AM

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.
