What appeared a victory lap turned into a nightmare for Martin Kaymer as he lost the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship after blowing a final-day 10-shot lead.
The German closed with a 3-over 36-39=75 to slump to third place on 17-under 271 -- two behind surprise winner Gary Stal. Kaymer was in total control as he extended his six-shot overnight lead to 10 with birdies at three of the first four holes. But his bid to claim a wire-to-wire victory and fourth Abu Dhabi crown in total unexpectedly derailed with a bogey at six, a double bogey at 9 and a title-wrecking triple at the 13th. Kaymer could never recover from that setback and five closing pars saw him finish third. Jan 18 - 8:20 AM

With a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in his third round of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, overnight leader Martin Kaymer extended his margin to six strokes.

The German is bidding for the outright wire-to-wire title at Abu Dhabi Golf Club. Today, he hit 15 greens in regulation, took a minuscule 25 putts and buried seven birdies. Through 54 holes, he's missed only seven GIR. Kaymer has also played his last 42 holes in bogey-free 16-under. He's 20-under 196 entering the finale. Belgium's Thomas Pieters sit alone in second place at 14-under 202. Rory McIlroy back-peddled on Saturday with a 1-under 71. At 12-under 204 and tied for fifth, he'd need a combination of factors to catch his fellow Ryder Cupper. It was just one week ago that Charl Schwartzel slept on a five-shot lead at the South African Open Championship before losing in a playoff to Andy Sullivan, who charged back from seven back on Sunday.

Overnight leader Martin Kaymer tacked on a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship to kick clear of the field.

Kaymer's bogey-free morning round saw him reach the midpoint at 13-under, good enough for a four-shot lead when he handed in his card. For the second day running, the German hit 16 greens in regulation while two sand saves meant he completed his 18 holes without a blemish. Kaymer, who started the second round with a one-shot lead after an opening 64, is bidding to win this event for the fourth time. He was the halfway leader in two of those victories (2008 and 2011).

Martin Kaymer is tracking a fourth victory at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship after grabbing the first-round lead.

Kaymer is the ultimate course horse in Abu Dhabi with victories in 2008, 2010 and 2011 along with a second spot in 2009. And he's in position again after an 8-under-par 33-31=64 on his opening lap of the par 72. The US Open champion birdied four of the first eight holes before a bogey at nine halted his progress. But he hit the birdie trail again on the back nine and circled six more against a single blemish at 12 to surge past early clubhouse leader Thomas Pieters. The 64 is the German's low round in Abu Dhabi; he's previously carded 65 on three occasions.

Martin Kaymer has elected not to tee it up in next week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Kaymer qualified (convincingly) with titles at THE PLAYERS and the U.S. Open, but like many Europeans, he's slated to open 2015 at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on Jan. 15-18. So, his first appearance at Kapalua will have to wait for another year. Given his relative inconsistency in the long-term, gamers cannot expect a repeat of his success last year. Instead, consider the 30-year-old as a potential threat in weekly formats.

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.

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.

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.

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.
