Golf Australia Express : Issue 13
IN COLD and windy conditions, Martin Kaymer shot a superb final round 66 to win by three shots. The German added the 2010 victory to wins at the PGA Championship and KLM Open in his previous two starts, making him the first to win three consecutive European Tour events since Tiger Woods four years earlier. Starting the final round two-shots behind England’s John Parry, Kaymer made three birdies in the first six holes to take the lead. Kaymer’s biggest threat came from England’s Danny Willett, whose eagle at 14 drew him level with the German. But Kaymer’s 25-foot birdie at the same hole, and two more at the final two holes sealed the win. IN ONE of the strongest line-ups in the history of the championship, this week’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship has it all. Major champions, the world’s top ranked players and even a big billing Yank—all will compete on a triumvirate of golf’s best tracks. Three of this year’s major champions will be there— Darren Clarke, who won the British Open at 42, his fellow Northern Irishman and US Open winner Rory McIlroy, and US Masters champion, South African Charl Schwartzel. Each will be trying to win his first Alfred Dunhill Links title. Past major champions include South African’s Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Trevor Immelman and Louis Oosthuizen, Ireland’s Padraig Harrington, Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell and Germany’s Martin Kaymer. Current world No. 1 and 2 Luke Donald and Lee Westwood will also be in the field. Donald’s the in-form player. Harrington’s a two-time winner, Westwood’s won here before and Kaymer’s bidding to become the first to win back-to-back titles here. But there’s another player sneaking under the radar— and he’s our pick.
