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. May 26 - 7:14 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Martin Kaymer blew up for a 10-over-par 39-43=82 in today's opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

Even the reigning U.S. Open champ couldn't handle the U.S. Open-like scoring conditions, or lack thereof. In what was his first competitive loop of TPC San Antonio, Kaymer found six (of 14) fairways and eight greens in regulation. He circled two birdies, but threw it in reverse to the tune of four bogeys, one double and a pair of triples. His 7 at the par-4 sixth was the result of a three-putt from 7'7". This is Kaymer's highest aggregate in 279 career rounds on the PGA TOUR. It's just the second time that he's failed to break 80.

Martin Kaymer warms up for Augusta at Valero Texas Open.

With limited starts in 2015, Kaymer is making his first career start at TPC San Antonio in the run-up to the season’s first major. Two top-five finishes in two 2015 starts on the European Tour quickly sparked interest in the reigning PLAYERS champion and U.S. Open champion, but his two starts on the PGA TOUR -- T44 at the Honda Classic and 3-over-par T31 at the no-cut WGC-Cadillac -- has quickly put Kaymer back on the fantasy shelf. Hard to rule out a two-time major champion but with limited starts on both tours and debut appearance at VTO it's hard to place Kaymer at the top of the list in fantasy value this week.
Mar 24 - 12:01 PM

Martin Kaymer enjoyed a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of The Honda Classic.

This is his first PGA TOUR starts since the WGC-HSBC Championship in November, but he finished no worse than T4 in his last four starts dating back to a co-runner-up at the Thailand Golf Championship in mid-December. He circled four birdies at PGA National today, including conversions from 10'4" and 26'5" at Nos. 15 and 6, respectively. At the time he signed his card, he held a share of the clubhouse lead, but that has since gone by the boards.

Martin Kaymer returns to PGA National's Champion Course for his third consecutive Honda Classic appearance.

Kaymer has yet to crack the top 50 at the Honda but his recent form overseas is appetizing. His last three starts internationally have yielded finishes inside the top five. The German is 16 for his last 20 on the PGA TOUR and should be highly targeted this week, regardless of his course history.
Feb 25 - 8:34 PM

Martin Kaymer blazed the Emirates for an 8-under-par 31-33=64 to banish the memories of his collapse in Abu Dhabi and finish T4 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

In his first Sunday outing since blowing a 10-shot lead two weeks ago, Kaymer proved a point. His 64 was his lowest round in this tournament and lifted him to a third straight top five worldwide. The German was out in 31 after birdies at two, four, eight and nine and found another quartet of par breakers on the back nine. They came at 10, 13, 16 and 17 as he raced through the field to finish at 15-under 273 having started the day outside the top 30. The two-time major champion will now switch his attention to the PGA TOUR, starting with the Honda Classic on February 26.
Feb 1 - 7:54 AM

Martin Kaymer put his Abu Dhabi collapse firmly behind by shooting an opening 5-under-par 34-33=67 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

This was Kaymer's first round since he blew a 10-shot lead on the last day of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship and there was no sign of any hangover. The German had given a masterclass in positive, reasoned thinking in his pre-tournament press conference and backed up his words in a fine display which featured seven birdies and two bogeys. Kaymer was fast out of the blocks with birdies at 10, 12 and 13 before giving one back at 14. He made further par breakers at 17 and 18 and then, on a quieter second nine, circled birdies at five and eight against a bogey at six. His 67 left him two shots behind early clubhouse leaders Nicolas Colsaerts, Andy Sullivan and Lee Westwood.

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.
