Past champ Martin Kaymer enjoyed a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's final round of the 98th PGA Championship to post 8-under 272, up seven spots to T7, six adrift of champion Jimmy Walker.
The 2010 champ at Whistling Straits (playoff) played 36 holes on Sunday. He began the finale on 4-under (T14) after opening his ninth appearance in progressively worse laps of 66-69-71. The 31-year-old landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.615 putts per GIR. He circled four birdies and a walk-off eagle from 33'4", bumping him from T13 inside the top 10, and squared bogeys on holes 5 and 16. The German, who's not a TOUR member this season, posted his first top 10 in his 10th event of 2015-16. Jul 31 - 8:33 PM

Martin Kaymer tacked on a 1-under-par 35-34=69 to his opening 66 to post 5-under 135 through two rounds of the 98th PGA Championship, good enough for Friday's early clubhouse lead.

Despite finding water with his opening tee shot and making bogey at two of his first three holes, Kaymer ended with a flourish to stay right in contention to win the year's final major for a second time. The German responded to his sticky start with a bounceback birdie-2 at No. 3 although he dropped another shot at 10. But on the Lower Course's gettable closing stretch, the 31-year-old drained 18ft birdie putts at 15 and 16 and signed off with another circle at 18 after wedging his third to inside 5ft. Right now, he's in a four-way tie for the lead with Patrick Reed, Henrik Stenson and Jimmy Walker. On today's morning lap, Kaymer hit 13 greens in regulation for the second round in succession but upped his fairways hit count from 7 to 8 (of 14).

Martin Kaymer is just a shot behind first-round leader Jimmy Walker after signing for a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opener at the 98th PGA Championship.

That's by far the best score of the afternoon wave at Baltusrol today and leaves the 2010 PGA champion in T2 alongside morning starters Emiliano Grillo and Ross Fisher. Kaymer circled five birdies and a single bogey in round one after starting from the 10th hole. He launched his move up the leaderboard with a 10'5" conversion at 15 and then added circles on the par 5s at 17 and 18. His only dropped shot came at No. 2 but he nailed birdies either side and closed with six pars after sand saves at 8 and 9. The two-time major winner split 7 (of 14) fairways on the Lower Course today and hit 13 greens in regulation.

Martin Kaymer cruised up the leaderboard during round one of The 145th Open, posting a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66, three off the torrid pace set by Phil Mickelson.

The German put an aerial attack on the greens today, landing 14 in regulation. That kind of ball-striking allowed him to navigate Royal Troon Golf Club rather stress-free. He rallied together a three-hole birdie train starting at the par-5 sixth hole and managed two more circles over the difficult back nine as the wind died down in the afternoon. This goes in the record books as his best round in an Open Championship, with his previous being 68 (2010 R3, 2011 R1, and 2015 R4).

Martin Kaymer heads to Castle Stuart Golf Links and the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in consistent continental form that only lacks the win.

When he missed 3 of his first 4 cuts played in the country the two-time major winner must have wondered about his compatibility with Scottish golf, but those fears were soon dismissed. Since then he is 14-for-16, with 11 finishes of T35 or better, including two wins and one play-off defeat. One of the wins was in this tournament's 2009 renewal at Loch Lomond. His one visit to Castle Stuart Golf Links was in 2012 when he opened 67-68 to be T6 at halfway, but could added 69-74 to slide back to T29. His form on European soil this term is impeccable: T6-T5-T7-T5. He’s not been so impressive elsewhere in the world, but although this field is strong there’s no reason his quality won’t continue to shine. Only 14th on the European Points List, he needs some high finishes very quickly if he is to represent his continent again in September.

Martin Kaymer won the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst by eight shots and will go for glory again this week in the 116th edition hosted by Oakmont.

This is the German's ninth start in the tournament in which he's made the weekend six times. As well as that runaway victory two years ago, other notable performances include T8 at Pebble Beach in 2010 and T15 at Olympic Club in 2012. Kaymer showed his grinding skills when taking T6 in April's Open de Espana at Valderrama with 6-over while he's since finished T5 in the Irish Open and and T7 in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. He'll have Ryder Cup teammates Lee Westwood and Luke Donald playing alongside him over the first 36 holes. The trio are early starters on Thursday, teeing off from No. 10 at 8:13 a.m. local time.
Jun 15 - 1:48 PM

Martin Kaymer came on strong late in his opening round at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and tied Ross Fisher at the top of the leaderboard with a 3-under-par 38-31=69.

It looked like being a rather ordinary day for the German when he started 5-5 and followed his bogey at 11 with nine straight pars. But he picked up his first shot of the day at 3 and surged with an eagle-3 at the 568-yard 4th. The double major winner ticked off four more pars before joining Fisher in T1 with a birdie at 9. Kaymer hasn't had his best stuff in America this season but did put up T6 at the Open de Espana on his most recent European Tour start. Today, he piped 9 (of 14) fairways, hit 15 greens in regulation and took 32 putts.
May 19 - 8:48 AM

Martin Kaymer dug deep to craft a level-par round of 36-36=71 on day three of the Open de Espana, which left him on 2-over 215 and T2 heading into the final round.

Coming off yet another week of disappointment at Augusta National, the German has found solace in grinding it, not only on the range - where he has put in very long hours - but on a course that has taken its toll on those who lack patience. Kaymer hit just 5 of 14 fairways Saturday, and made just 9 greens in regulation, but he fought for his score on the greens, taking 27 putts and going 6-for-9 when scrambling. He had a brace of red numbers on 4 and 5, gave the shots back on 7 and 9. Another brace came on 10 and 11, the former thanks to an approach to 18 inches, before two more bogeys on 12 and 14. Kaymer is seeking a first win since he claimed the Players’ Championship and U.S. Open in May and June of 2014. He, Joost Luiten and Andrew Johnston are in a tie for second, one back of leader Mike Lorenzo-Vera.

Martin Kaymer shook off his latest Masters disappointment with a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the opening round of the Open de Espana at Valderrama.

A Saturday 79 meant the German could only manage T49 at Augusta National but that was quickly forgotten when he opened his bid for victory here with three birdies out of the gate at 10, 11 and 12. Kaymer bounced back from a bogey at 14 with a birdie at 17 to turn in 33 but it was something of a grind after that as he played Valderrama's opening nine in 36 with eight pars and a bogey-6 at 4. Still, that adds up to a solid day's work and puts him just three shots behind clubhouse leader Stuart Manley. The two-time major champion, who outscored playing partner Sergio Garcia by six shots, hit 7 (of 14) fairways and found 12 greens in regulation. He was 4-for-6 in scrambling.
Apr 14 - 9:14 AM

Martin Kaymer is still in search of his first top 25 at Augusta National Golf Club as he preps for this week's Masters.

Kaymer has a long list of accomplishments but the Masters is one event that has always alluded him. He missed the cut in his first four visits before rattling off finishes of T44-T35-T31 from 2012 through 2014. The German returned to his missed-cut ways in last year's edition. In 22 rounds at AGNC, he sports just two red numbers. Course history isn't everything, but this history is too strong to ignore. Gamers should look elsewhere when setting rosters this week.

Martin Kaymer kicked off his week at the Valspar Championship with a 1-under-par 36-34=70, currently four strokes off the co-leaders in the clubhouse.

The German striped eight (of 13) fairways on the round, parlaying that into 11 GIRs. The flat stick was very hit-or-miss today as he missed from inside four feet in two of his first four holes. He figured it out from there and rolled in three putts from nine feet or longer. The longest came from 11'8" for birdie on the par-3 17th hole. Kaymer is making his third career Valspar appearance, with a MC/2013 and T20/2011 already on his resume.
Mar 10 - 5:40 PM

Martin Kaymer made it a four-way tie for the lead at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai after carding a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in Thursday's first round.

Kaymer matched the scores of Marcus Fraser, Ian Poulter and Andy Sullivan with a lap of the Earth course which featured eight birdies. He completed his set at 18 after earlier picking up shots at 1, 3, 7, 11, 12, 14 and 15. The German dropped shots at 6 and 16. Kaymer split just 8 (of 14) fairways but hit 17 greens in regulation. He's beaten today's 66 just once in six previous starts at this event but, despite that third-round 64 in 2011, he's yet to finish in the top 10 at the European Tour's Race to Dubai finale.

With three birdies in his final five holes, Martin Kaymer posted a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in round two of the BMW Masters at Lake Malaren in China.

With rounds in the 60s hard to come by in windy Shanghai on Friday, Kaymer's second successive 69 advanced him nine spots to T9. He'll go into the weekend six shots behind leader Lucas Bjerreaard. The German was as far back as 2-under at one stage following a bogey-6 at the 7th but he hit back with a birdie at the next and reeled off par breakers at 14, 15 and 16 to arrive at 6-under 138. Kaymer has missed just three greens in regulation over his first 36 holes but his short game hasn't been on the same level. He's 0-for-3 in scrambling and has taken 64 putts.

Martin Kaymer won the 2011 WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International Golf Club and returns to Shanghai this week for another crack.

Kaymer lifted the trophy in memorable style four years ago when coming home in 29 to complete a closing 63 and secure victory by three shots. The German had another golden chance to win the tournament last year but, needing a birdie at the par-5 18th, he found water and swallowed a double bogey to finish T6. Overall, Kaymer has made the top 10 in five of his last six starts in this event so is likely to be one of the main European challengers in China this week. He has the added incentive of trying to capture a first win of 2015 following three top fours including a second place in September's Open d'Italia.

Former champion Martin Kaymer will seek a first win of the season when he lines up again in this week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.

Kaymer, who lifted the trophy in 2010, has let two clear winning opportunities slip from his grasp year -- the first when blowing a 10-shot led in Abu Dhabi and the second after losing a playoff at the Open d'Italia a fortnight ago having entered the back nine three in front. This week is an obvious chance for the German to remedy that as he was also runner-up in this tournament in 2008 and T7 in 2013. On his latest trip to St. Andrews (one of three courses used this week), Kaymer finished T12 in this summer's Open Championship. This event uses a pro-am format and it's a real family affair with Kaymer's father playing alongside him and the double major winner's brother acting as his dad's caddie.
