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. Nov 9 - 2:50 AM

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.

Martin Kaymer makes preparations at Gleneagles this week as he represents Europe in his third Ryder Cup appearance.

The German has been a journeyman in past Ryder Cup's, failing to secure a long-term playing partner. He went 1-0-1 with Lee Westwood by his side in 2010, but hasn't returned to that partnership since. Kaymer's Ryder Cup record sits at 3-2-1 for his career. The German has proven to relish the big stage, and should be an asset to any pairing he finds himself a part of this week.
Sep 23 - 9:24 AM

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.
Sep 6 - 5:20 PM

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.
Sep 1 - 4:30 PM

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.
