Golf Australia Express : Issue 16
ABUNKER shot for birdie sparked one of the rounds of the season as Germany’s Martin Kaymer blitzed his way to a three-shot win at the WGC- HSBC Champions event. The world No. 4 was in record-breaking form in Shanghai ramming home nine birdies in the closing 12 holes. His five-shot comeback was the largest in the final round of a WGC event, and his 9-under 63 was the lowest final round by a winner since the series began in 1999. KAYMER’S BIRDIE BLITZ The 26-year-old put on a clinical display of precision golf, recording his 10th European Tour title. Kaymer’s sensational 7-under par 29 back nine could have been better—he had makeable birdie chances at 14 and 16. But the misses didn’t cause him discomfort. “It started off a little slow, but then I holed a bunker shot on seven for birdie and since then, I didn’t miss a lot of golf shots,” Kaymer said. “I didn’t miss a lot of putts.” “ Today felt very comfortable over the putts. I hit a lot of good irons, my putts were not very difficult.” He said the win turned an “OK season” into a good one. It was the first victory for the 2010 PGA Championship winner since the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in January. And with this one, Kaymer became just the 10th player to have won a major and a WGC event. Finishing the event at 20-under, Kaymer’s come- from-behind win at Sheshan International came at the expense of a bevy of stars, including overnight leader Fredrik Jacobson, who fell to second at 17-under. Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell closed with a 67 to finish third with fellow countryman Rory McIlroy, South African Charl Schwartzel and England’s Paul Casey in a tie for fourth. Kaymer collected $1.2 million for the win and moved to second on the European Tour money list.
