Martin Kaymer climbed 66 spots on the leaderboard during round two of the Wells Fargo Championship, firing a 4-under-par 33-34=67 to reach 2-under 140 on the week.
The German started his day on the back nine and got the scoring kick-started with a 55'1" birdie bomb at the par-4 11th. The highlights stalled from there until the closing four holes. From there, he holed out from 21'6" to save par at the sixth, converted a 10-footer for eagle at the par-5 seventh, and then knocked in a 13'2" par-saver at the par-4 eighth. This will go in the books as Kaymer's lowest round since returning from a wrist injury at the beginning of April (14 rounds). Gamers should pop him back on their radar, especially heading into TPC Sawgrass next week where Kaymer has a win on his resume. May 4 - 7:13 PM

Martin Kaymer has an appalling record at the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club - can he improve it this week?

The one-time World No. 1 was always wary of ANGC, fearing that his left-to-right shape was never going to work there. He fretted about it and he changed his swing because of it. In one sense you could argue it finally worked last year. Up until then nine visits and 28 rounds had failed to reap even one sub-70 lap and only two sub-par efforts. His 2017 round one didn't offer much hope (78), but he shot 68 on both Friday and Sunday, in the circumstances (and with the history) outstanding efforts. It would take a very courageous gamer to believe it will be repeated soon however. He finished that week T16, his only top 30 in ten appearances. It's also his only stroke play top 20 in the U.S.A. since last year's Honda Classic.

Martin Kaymer provided an update on his wrist injury, including a target return date, barring any setbacks. He is hopeful for a return at the Houston Open in two weeks time. UPDATE: Kaymer returned to action Mar. 29th at the Houston Open and missed the cut by six shots on 3-over 70-77=147.

The German provided an update through social media, declaring his wrist to be feeling a lot better after some rest. He is set to start practicing again on Friday. Barring any setbacks, he hopes for the Houston Open to be his first event back, using that as preparation for the Masters the following week. Kaymer has done a remarkable job to keep his fans updated on the status of his injury, so continue to keep an eye on his social media accounts for further updates.

Martin Kaymer shared an update on the wrist injury that knocked him out of the Honda Classic. He had a misplaced bone in his right wrist that caused irritation. Rest is the suggested treatment with no timetable for his return to action.

The German went home to Munich to get his wrist checked out after his first career mid-tournament WD which took place at the Honda Classic. Kaymer shared a video with his social media followers that provided a thorough update on the diagnosis. Kaymer said he'll use this time off to work on some personal projects. With no timetable for his return, gamers will just have to keep on the lookout for further progress updates. On the bright side, allowing this to heal instead of playing through the pain should be good for his long-term outlook.
Mar 2 - 1:46 PM

Martin Kaymer has withdrawn from The Honda Classic following a 5-over-par 36-39=75 during round one, citing a wrist injury.

The German entered the week fresh off a T53 in his Genesis Open debut. At the Honda he was returning to an event where he finished T4 last year. It wasn't meant to be this week, though, as he traded five bogeys and a double with just two birdies. His typically strong ball-striking was absent today as he lost 1.809 strokes off-the-tee and another 2.037 strokes approaching-the-green. Kaymer's last missed cut on the PGA TOUR had previously come at the 2016 Valspar Championship so this was a big blow to gamers who were relying on a cut made this week. There is no word on the severity of this wrist injury but he's not qualified for next week's WGC-Mexico Championship so the earliest we'd see him again would be at the Valspar Championship. This was Kaymer's first mid-tournament WD in 118 career PGA TOUR starts.
Feb 22 - 2:17 PM

Making his tournament and PGA TOUR season debut, World No. 78 Martin Kaymer authored a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the Genesis Open, vaulting 68 places on the live leaderboard to T18 on 2-under 140, five back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Patrick Cantlay.

The 33-year-old kicked off with a 2-over 73, overshadowing three birdies with three bogeys and double bogey-6. On Day 2, he hit seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, carding four birdies at holes 6, 7, 11 and 15, all from 10 feet and in. The German gained 2.401 strokes approaching-the-green and 4.019 tee-to-green and though early in the proceedings on Friday, has recorded just the third bogey-free round of the week thus far.

Martin Kaymer will make his 2018 PGA Tour season debut at the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club this week.

Kaymer chose to take a couple months off between the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai and two EURO events in the United Arab Emirates in January. And we haven't seen him in a PGA Tour event since The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale last July. Don't worry about any rust, however, as he has made the cut in six straight worldwide events while going top-30 or better in each event. It's a star-packed field at the Genesis Open, but he won't be fazed in the least. Kaymer enters with a low salary as far as DFS is concerned, but he has a ton of upside and could be a very good value.

Martin Kaymer limped home with a final round of 1-under-par 35-36=71 to finish the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City on 6-under 282, good for T5, five swings back of winner Branden Grace.

The German had an outside chance of victory at the start of the day, but lost it stone dead with bogeys at 2 and 5. "That kind of killed all momentum," he admitted afterwards. He rebounded to mark four straight birdies at 7, 8, 9 and 10, but lost another shot at the 18th hole yet walked away relatively content with a first top five finish since February's Honda Classic and fond thoughts of the host. "I scored well here and I like it," he said. "I get a lot of support and in my opinion South Africa should get one or two more big events."

Martin Kaymer crafted a third round 3-under-par 34-35=69 at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, good for a 54-hole total of 5-under 211 and tied third on the live leaderboard at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City.

The German is seeking his first top 15 finish in the tournament at the fifth time of asking and he is also on a quest for his first top ten finish since the Honda Classic in February. He made fine progress through the first ten holes of the day, ticking 2, 5, 8 and 10, with just the one dropped shot at No. 7. The highlight was a spectacular chip-in at the eighth, which saw the ball veer dramatically into the hole off a sharp slope. His last birdie came at 15 and it was a tap-in on the 471-yard par-4, but he handed a shot back to the card at 17. When he signed his card he was three swings back of the clubhouse leader Scott Jamieson, with only Victor Dubuisson (-7 through 16) capable of changing that lead.

Martin Kaymer cruised to a second lap of 3-under-par 33-36=69 to reach 2-under 142 after 36 holes of the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City; he's T8 but just three back of the leader Victor Dubuisson.

The German had started the day languishing at T39, but he thrust himself into the weekend reckoning with only his third sub-70 circuit of the course in 22 attempts. What's more, having posted a worse results with every visit to the tournament (T16-T21-T25-T44) he has the potential to throw off those particular shackles. His Friday lap tied the low row round of the day in blustery conditions and there was just the one error (at 10). On the front nine he ticked 2, 8 and 9, on the back No. 13. He currently leads the field for Greens in Regulation hit (80.6%).

Martin Kaymer will hope to turn his Nedbank Golf Challenge form around at the Gary Player Country Club this week in Sun City, South Africa.

It all started so well for the German in this tournament, an event he is playing for the fifth successive year. On debut he lay T4 at halfway after a round two 66. He must have felt a repeat of his T3 in the 2012 South African Open, his only other start in the country, might be bettered. A weekend 74-75 scuppered that as he trailed in T16. A year later, the final time the field was made up of 30 players, he was T21. In 2015 he couldn't break 70 for a second consecutive year and ended the week T25. Then last year he was T44 to complete the trend of marking a worse result every season. His form is odd with a pair of lacklustre results interrupted by a missed cut: T37-T31-MC, T20-T36-MC, T27-T30 ... he can't miss the cut this week, but can he breach the top ten?

Martin Kaymer will sit the next few weeks out with a shoulder injury, withdrawing from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational as well as next week's PGA Championship.

Kaymer alerted his fans via Facebook saying, "Some of you might have heard already, but I am fighting a shoulder injury for some weeks now. After playing last week's Open Championship under medication, I have seen my doctors again this week." This certainly explains the sudden drop in form as the German hasn't cracked a top 30 over his last eight starts, worldwide. Kaymer would later add in his Facebook post, "I am looking to come back strong at the Made in Denmark in a couple of weeks, followed by the Czech Masters the week after." The fact that he's throwing out such a clear timeline is great news for the likely severity of this injury. Gamers should expect a quick recovery but also play it safe until he shows a sign that he's back in form.

Martin Kaymer plays the The 146th Open Championship this week at Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport – and he’s still seeking a first top five finish in the event.

This week will mark the German’s tenth appearance on the linksland of Britain and his record is solid, if not even stolid, given that he is 9-for-10 yet still seeks something better than the T7 he earned in 2010 at St Andrews. He’s also been T12 on two occasions, in 2011 and 2015. That latter result was also at St Andrews and he is a winner in the Dunhill Links Championship – perhaps he is one of the many players who thrives on the Old Course, but not so much on other links courses? His form is also a concern with no top 30 in his last seven starts (including a missed cut last week), a poor return for a player of his quality.

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.
