Martin Kaymer had to settle for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in round three of the 144th Open Championship at St. Andrews and, at 2-under 211, remains in the pack.
It shows how low scoring has been at the Old Course today that Kaymer's lap is considered disappointing. While playing partner Padraig Harrington thrust himself into contention with a 65, Kaymer spluttered and needed birdies at 16 and 17 to shoot under par for the day. He also circled par breakers at 2 and 3 to suggest a low round was imminent but he lost all momentum after that and played 6 to 16 in 2-over. Sitting six shots off the lead doesn't appear too bad but, right now, there are 34 players ahead of him on the leaderboard so the two-time major winner needs something incredibly low to make a challenge in round four.

Martin Kaymer is the only player to shoot both rounds in the 60s at the Alstom Open de France and shares the halfway lead at 4-under 138.

With a walk-off birdie at 18, the German added a second 2-under-par 34-35=69 on Friday and tied Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Victor Dubuisson for top spot. The trio will play in a three-ball on Saturday. Kaymer had just one blemish on his card today, a double bogey-6 at 15 after finding water. His other birdies came at 3,9 and 13. The Ryder Cup star came into this week on the back of three missed cuts but course form is kicking in strongly and he'll have the chance this weekend to add to his 2009 win and five further top 20s at Le Golf National. Kaymer might have to sharpen up his driving, though, after only splitting 15 (of 28) fairways so far.

Martin Kaymer put three straight missed cuts behind him with a solid 2-under-par 34-35=69 on day one of the weather-hit Open de France at Le Golf National.

That's just one off the clubhouse lead and two back from his compatriot Maximilian Kieffer, who still has four holes to complete when play resumes on Friday. Kaymer, the 2009 winner at this course, suffered his only bogey of the round at 13 to slip over par but made no mistakes after that and circled birdies at 14, 16 and 9 to end the day in T7. The German only split 8 (of 14) fairways but hit 16 greens in regulation and was 2-for-2 in scrambling.

Martin Kaymer won't be around for the weekend at his home BMW International Open after carding a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in round two.

Needing a birdie at the final hole to make the cut, Kaymer could only bogey after his drive was deemed not to have crossed a water hazard and his total of 1-under 143 was two shots too many. It's a huge disappointment for the two-time major champion who also played just 36 holes in defense of his U.S. Open crown last week. The German could only muster a 72 in his opening lap and put himself further behind the eight-ball with three bogeys against two birdies on his front nine at Golfclub München Eichenried today. Needing to play the back nine in 4-under to advance, Kaymer found birdies at 11, 13 and 14 to get back on track before he made a mess of 18.

Home hero Martin Kaymer had to settle for an even-par 34-38=72 in his opening round at the BMW International Open in Germany.

The double major champion looked to be cruising along when completing his opening nine with a birdie to turn in 2-under 34 but he ran into difficulties after that. A bogey at 1 was followed by a double bogey-6 at 3 and he eventually needed an unlikely walk-off birdie at 9 (he found water with his approach) to avoid shooting over par. Kaymer hit 14 greens in regulation but was just 1-for-4 in scrambling and needed 32 putts. The German has missed his last two cuts and now risks crashing out at halfway in his home event for the second year running.

Martin Kaymer will be the centre of attention at this week's BMW International Open at Golfclub München Eichenried.

The two-time major winner will draw huge crowds in his native Germany as he aims to repeat his 2008 victory at this venue. Some words of warning for gamers though. Kaymer has managed just one top 10 in this event since that victory seven years ago and he's missed his last two cuts, the latest at Chambers Bay when bidding to defend his U.S. Open crown. Kaymer is 14th for greens in regulation on the European Tour this season so looks in good shape to give himself plenty of birdie opportunities on the par 72 where the last 10 winning scores were -18, -16, -18, -22, -15-, -13, -15, -23, -21 and -19.

Defending champion Martin Kaymer opened his title defense of the U.S. Open with a 2-over-par 35-37=72.

Despite an early bogey at 11, the German sparked memories of his eight-shot win at Pinehurst 12 months ago with an eagle-2 at 12 after driving the green. But that was as good as it got as he swallowed a double bogey-6 at the next and played the rest of his round in 1-over to end his morning lap seven shots behind leaders Henrik Stenson and Dustin Johnnson. Kaymer, who split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, opened with a 65 when taking victory last year. However, he did shoot 72 on day one before going on to win the 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits with 11-under.

Martin Kaymer will bid to become the first man since Curtis Strange in 1988-89 to win back-to-back U.S. Open titles when he goes into battle at Chambers Bay this week.

Tiger Woods won the other three majors in consecutive years but never this one so Strange's record remains there to be shot at. It's a big ask but Kaymer did manage to defend the European Tour's prestigious Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in 2011 and he won his first major at Whistling Straits -- a course which has been likened to Chambers Bay. One of the keys to Kaymer's eight-shot win at Pinehurst last year was that he was able to putt from off the greens and he'll again be able to show off that strength on this track where the fairways and putting surfaces blend into one. The German is 6-for-7 in his U.S. Open career and also managed T8 at Pebble Beach in 2010 and T15 at Olympic Club in 2015. Like playing partner Rory McIlroy, he missed the cut in the Irish Open last time although the two-time major champ was T18 at Wentworth before that. Kaymer and McIlroy tee off along with Korean amateur Gunn Yang from No. 10 at 8:28 a.m. PDT on Thursday.

Martin Kaymer is one of the star names heading to Royal County Down for the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

The recruiting skills of tournament host Rory McIlroy and the chance to take on the fabled Irish links have persuaded the German to make his first appearance in the event since 2008. Kaymer finished T10 on that occasion and T35 on his only other start 12 months earlier. Both those tournaments were held at Adare Manor. The current U.S. Open champion, who defends his crown at Chambers Bay next month, had endured a poor run of results on the PGA TOUR with three missed cuts and a T56 in his last four strokeplay events. But he bounced back with a solid T18 in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth last week and it's reasonable for gamers to expect another forward step here.

Martin Kaymer is 7-for-8 in the BMW PGA Championship but will be looking for a first top 10 at Wentworth this week.

The German is a consistent performer over the West Course and has four top 20s but a T11 in 2009 remains his best result. He challenged it last year with twin 69s on the weekend taking him to T12. The main doubt for gamers is Kaymer's current form which shows three missed cuts and a T56 when defending his title at THE PLAYERS. Not that he seems concerned having said in Tuesday's press conference, "I know things will fall into place sooner or later, and when you practise hard, it's almost unavoidable to have success. So it will happen, it's just a matter of being patient."

Martin Kaymer opened his title defense of THE PLAYERS with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 to sit just two strokes adrift of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

His the score du jour today as he was the 14th to sign for a 69. Kaymer's form upon arrival has been borderline terrible, but he's 6-for-6 at TPC Sawgrass. It doesn't make sense how he'd find his game on this track, but facts are facts. Don't argue. He went 5-for-13 in scoring opportunities with five birdies. His longest found the cup from 13'5" at the par-5 ninth hole. Kaymer is probably now benefited of making the quick turnaround for his second round. He's scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 8:39 a.m. ET on Friday.
May 7 - 7:07 PM

Martin Kaymer hoisted the hardware at the 2014 PLAYERS and returns to TPC Sawgrass this week for a chance to defend his title.

The German is sputtering a bit heading into this week, as he's missed the cut in three of his past four starts. Luckily, he is a perfect 6-for-6 at TPC Sawgrass, and has a pair of top 20s in addition to his victory last year. Kaymer is one of those golfers that can flip the switch any week and go from zero form to best player in the field. Gamers should give him a hard look this week, considering his course history.
May 6 - 9:38 AM

Martin Kaymer downed Thongchai Jaidee 3 and 1 in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

This match has a little bit of everything in it for both guys. However, the only glaring omission was the fact that the German never trailed. However, it took three regressions to all square before he finally sewed up the lead that he wouldn't relinquish with a birdie-3 at the 11th hole. Another birdie-3, this time at 14, doubled the margin. Forced to birdie the last two holes to extend, Jaidee instead squared a bogey at the par-3 17th to set the final score. The Thai will go out in the first match in the second round where he'll find Jim Furyk waiting on the tee. Kaymer will follow 10 minutes later and grapple with George Coetzee.

Martin Kaymer finished runner-up at the 2011 World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship and returns this week for another shot.

The German didn't face anything better than a five seed on his 2011 journey the the championship. There, he was met by three-seeded Luke Donald, losing 3&2 when all was said and done. This year, his round robin matches in the group stage will go against Jim Furyk, George Coetzee, and Thongchai Jaidee. This group is wide-open for anyone to take.
Apr 27 - 11:57 PM

Martin Kaymer completed 36 holes of the 79th Masters in 7-over-par 76-75=151, missing the cut by five strokes.

Just when it seemed that the German was beginning to solve Augusta National Golf Club. After missing the cut in his first four trips, he logged progressively better results in his last three. This week, Kaymer hit 20 greens in regulation but converted only three birdies, which were wiped away by eight bogeys and a double. Fifty-five golfers will play the weekend, but other notables that missed the cut include: 147--two-time champ Bernhard Langer; J.B. Holmes; Matt Every; Brandt Snedeker; Jim Furyk; Luke Donald ... 148--Billy Horschel ... 149--1991 champ Ian Woosnam; Padraig Harrington; Victor Dubuisson ... 150--two-time champ José Maria Olazabal; 1988 champ Sandy Lyle ... 151--1987 champ Larry Mize ... 152--two-time champ Tom Watson ... 153--1992 champ Fred Couples; 2008 champ Trevor Immelman ... 163--2003 champ Mike Weir ... 176--two-time champ Ben Crenshaw.
