Local hero Martin Kaymer failed to convert a 6’0" birdie putt on the final green as he limped to a second round level-par 34-38=72 and subsequently missed the cut by one stroke on level-par 144 in the BMW International Open at Golfclub München Eichenried.
In truth, despite winning at the course in 2008, his record there is poor; this is his fifth missed weekend in ten visits. As in the first round he matched every birdie he made with the same number of bogeys; on Thursday it was two and two, on Friday three and three. A mammoth number of 85 players succeeded where Kaymer failed. Other notables joining the German in leaving early include: 144- Matteo Manassero ... 145- Stephen Gallacher, Eddie Pepperell ... 146- Lee Slattery ... 147- Marcus Fraser, Ashun Wu ... 148- Thomas Bjorn … 149- Mikko Ilonen … 151- Jose Maria Olazabal … 159- Marc Warren.

Former tournament champion Martin Kaymer took a private plane from Erin Hills to Munich for this week’s home match, the BMW International Open at Golfclub München Eichenried.

Kaymer has enjoyed (and endured) a slightly cock-eyed record at Eichenried. Back in 2008 he claimed victory on the course, but even then he proved that he’s well capable of poor rounds on the track, posting 68-63-67 to hold the 54-hole lead before adding a 75 as he limped home. He owns another three efforts that are T21 or better, but he’s missed four cuts and was T58 on debut back in 2003. Since T4 in the Honda Classic he hasn’t finished better than T16 although he briefly threatened to do so last week when a second round 69 at the U.S. Open got him to T19, but he spent the weekend going backwards with laps of 75 and 73. It’s now exactly three years since his last win, the 2014 U.S. Open.

Martin Kaymer looks to start a new cuts-made streak as he turns his attention toward Erin Hills Golf Course for the 117th U.S. Open Championship.

The German missed the cut in his latest start, the BMW PGA Championship overseas. That broke a streak of 29 straight cuts made, worldwide, dating back to the 2016 Valspar Championship (3/13/2016). Now he'll prep for a new venue in Erin, Wisconsin. Kaymer already owns a U.S. Open Championship, winning the 2014 edition that was held at Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina. On the PGA TOUR, Kaymer has found himself inside the top 25 at the midpoint in eight of his last 10 starts. Gamers should expect him to throw his name into the mix early this week.

Kaymer cakewalked his way to a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-35=69 during the second round of the RBC Heritage, keeping his name in the mix with a two-day tally of 5-under 137.

The German split 10 (of 14) fairways today but struggled to score from there. He gave himself just two birdie looks from inside 20 feet on the outward nine and converted on both, a 12'10" splash at the par-5 second and a tap-in birdie at the par-5 fifth. Kaymer would have just three more reasonable back-nine birdie looks from inside 20 feet, none inside 10 feet, and failed to convert on all three. Despite the ho-hum approach play, he managed to maintain a clean card throughout the round and position himself nicely for a weekend run here in Hilton Head.

World No. 44 Martin Kaymer smoothed a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the 2017 Masters to post 2-over 146, up 59 spots on the leaderboard to T16, six shy of a 4-pack leading on 4-under.

Through 36 holes and 182 rounds played, there's been just three laps bogey-free: Sergio Garcia (71/R1), Ryan Moore (69/R2), and now Kaymer, who's the best of the lot. This is his 10th Masters and he's now completed 28 rounds, and this is his first round in the 60s and just his third sub-par round overall. He opened with 78, outbalancing one birdie-3 and one eagle-3 with seven bogeys and one double bogey-6, and played holes 10-15 in 7-over. The 2-time major winner ended the debacle with birdie-3 at the 18th and came back on Friday to circle four birdies (Nos. 2, 7, 10, and 13) on 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.50 average putts per hole and zero 3-putts.

World No. 46 Martin Kaymer came away victorious in round one of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, walking away with a 3-and-2 win over Jimmy Walker.

The German was 1-over thru 4 but still carried a 1-up lead until Walker birdied the par-4 fifth hole. Kaymer responded with a birdie of his own at the 6th to reclaim the lead. After the turn, the two-time major champion turned on the gas, circling birdies in five of the first seven holes on the homeward nine. Walker had no answer for the birdie barrage. Kaymer's career singles record improves to 22-17-0 with this win, which includes a runner-up finish at this event in 2011. The German will have his hands full tomorrow as he is set to face World No. 1 Dustin Johnson in Round 2.
Mar 22 - 5:35 PM

Martin Kaymer will make a tenth start in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club, but he’s only once thrived in the tournament.

His runner-up finish in 2010 really does stand out like a sore thumb in his log book. That year he dispatched the likes of Justin Rose, Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson prior to losing the final to Luke Donald. The same year he ticked four wins in the Volvo World Match Play before again being tripped up by Donald. But that season’s record in the format of 9-2 completely bolsters a career singles record of 21-17 (indeed it is 12-15 without it). Twelve months ago he did claim two group stage wins, but was eliminated because his defeat was painful – he lost 8&6 to Zach Johnson. T4 in the Honda Classic prior to finishing T23 in both the Mexico Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational. On paper his first round group (No. 1) is tough; he must overwhelm a trio of Americans in the form of Dustin Johnson (top seed), Jimmy Walker and Webb Simpson.

World No. 45 Martin Kaymer crafted a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship for a 36-hole total of 5-under 137, up 12 spots to T8, four shy of leader Rory McIlroy, who shot 65.

This is the 32-year-old's 10th appearance, with all nine at the former venue (Trump National Doral), and one top 10 (T3/2010). Overall, it's his 35th WGC, winning the 2011 HSBC when it was an unofficial event on the PGA TOUR, but an official event on the European Tour. The German kicked off with a 70 (five birdies, two bogeys, one double) on 13 (of 14) fairways but just 10 greens in regulation. He dipped to nine fairways but improved to 12 GIR, gaining 2.846 strokes tee-to-green. Kaymer squared bogeys at Nos. 8 and 17, but circled four birdies, including three straight at 10-12, the latter a hole-out 3 from 33'7" away, and began with a 21'6" eagle at the par-4 first after driving the green.

Sponsor invite and World No. 51 Martin Kaymer pieced together an even-par 34-36=70 in today's final round of The Honda Classic to conclude his fourth appearance on 7-under 273, down one spot into a six-way T4, five in arrears to champion Rickie Fowler.

After kicking off in 65-70-68, the 32-year-old began in a five-way T3 on 7-under, six back of 54-hole leader Fowler. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.162 strokes approaching-the-green. The German took 31 putts total and circled five birdies for 1.615 putts per GIR, but cancelled them with five bogeys, all failed scrambles, losing 0.687 strokes around-the-green. For the week, he tallied 17 birdies versus 10 bogeys en route to his first TOUR top 10 since T7 at the PGA Championship last July, and his first top 40 at PGA National (T44/2015).

Sponsor invite and World No. 51 Martin Kaymer stalled out to a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in today's third round of The Honda Classic for a three-day total of 7-under 203, up four spots on the leaderboard to T3, six back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler.

The 32-year-old raced out with birdies on Nos. 1, 3, 6 and 9 to turn 4-under, but that was it. He came home in birdie-less 2-over, squaring book-end bogeys at 10 and 18. The German found 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and taking 28 swipes with the flat stick. Both of his squares were failed scrambles, lowlighted by a walk-off 6 at the reachable par-5 18th, while three of his birdies were between five and six feet, brushing in a long of 15'1" at the par-4 sixth.
Feb 25 - 5:35 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, sponsor invite and World No. 51 Martin Kaymer conjured an even-par 35-35=70 in today's second round of The Honda Classic to reach the halfway point on 5-under 135, down four places to T7 with play still in progress.

In a complete reversal from round 1, the 32-year-old mustered just four (of 14) fairways and eight greens in regulation. After gaining 4.271 strokes tee-to-green on Thursday, he lost 1.747 in round 2. The German cancelled out bogeys at 14 and 3 with one conventional birdie from 10'5" at the par-4 11th and a chip-in 2 (from 36'8" away) for birdie at the par-3 fifth. He posted a pedestrian 1.875 putts per GIR but a steady 2.000 SG: Putting on 25 putts total, buoyed by four par-savers from between five and eight feet.
Feb 24 - 12:37 PM

World No. 51 Martin Kaymer coasted to a 5-under-par 31-34=65 during round one of The Honda Classic, placing him one off the current co-leaders with playing winding down for the day.

The German was locked in from the start today. He missed just one fairway which help set up 15 greens in regulation. It was a truly balanced attack as he walked off the course gaining 1+ strokes over the field in all four sub-categories of strokes gained (off-the-tee, approach-to-the-green, around-the-green, and putting). Highlights included three birdie putts from outside 11 feet in addition to a chip-in birdie from 35'7" at the par-3 17th. Kaymer needed a sponsor's invite to crack the field this week, but he's taking full advantage of the opportunity so far.
Feb 23 - 5:39 PM

Martin Kaymer battled strong winds and fired an impressive 3-under-par 35-34=69 in round two of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on Friday, good enough to set the early clubhouse target of 4-under 140.

The German, who has four top four finishes at this event, got the start he wanted by kicking off with birdies at 10 and 11. He gave a shot back at 15 but retrieved it with another circle at the par-5 18th. Kaymer quickly followed it with further gains at 2 and 3 before dropping a shot at 7. That's an impressive lap of Emirates GC and, if the winds stay high, there could be very few rounds in the 60s. On the live leaderboard, the double major winner is T7, four behind on-course leader George Coetzee.

Can Martin Kaymer rediscover the winning touch at this week's Commercial Bank Qatar Masters hosted by Doha GC?

He's currently one of the greatest enigmas on the European Tour, whose dilemma was beautifully illustrated last Sunday. He finished T4 in Abu Dhabi, but having held the lead after 8 holes of the final round he hit reverse. It may not have been quite as spectacular as his final round collapse on that course in 2015, but it made one wonder how deep the scars are for a man who hasn't won since that meltdown. That said he looked genuinely excited to witness firsthand Tommy Fleetwood overcome his own winless streak and might be inspired. He is 6-for-7 on the course, with T9 finishes in both 2012 and 2013, but he hasn't been back since 2014.
Jan 23 - 1:14 PM

Martin Kaymer gained and then lost the final round lead of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, eventually carding 3-under-par 33-36=69 as he had to settle for T3 on 15-under 273.

The German's curious relationship with the Abu Dhabi GC continues. He's a three-time champion, but is perhaps best known for blowing a 10-shot mid-final round lead two years ago, since when he is yet to lift another trophy. He was again in possession of the lead after eight holes this Sunday, after he followed an early birdie at No. 2 with a hat-trick of them from the 6th, the first of which came courtesy of an enormous 45'0" putt. It went swiftly wrong, however. He made bogeys at 9 and 10, and then at 13 he executed a superb chip from thick rough only to miss the 3'0" par putt. He made eagle at the last, but his race had been run before then; he had teed off on the hole three behind winner Tommy Fleetwood. Another scar? Or a reminder that he's very close to winning again?
