Kaymer, Martin - Autographed Golf Ball
Born: Dec. 28, 1984 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Martin Kaymer turned professional in 2005 and is a member of the European Tour. He has won nine tournaments on the tour including four in 2010 to win the Race to Dubai, formerly the Order of Merit, for the first time. Among those wins was the 2010 PGA Championship, a victory which made him only the second German to win a major championship, after Bernhard Langer.
On 15 August 2010, Kaymer won the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits for his first major championship. Finishing regulation play in a two-way tie at 11 under par, he defeated Bubba Watson in a three-hole playoff.
Kaymer was a member of the winning European Ryder Cup team. He won both four-balls (partnered with Westwood and Poulter), halved his foursome and lost his singles match. A week later he won the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews with Danny Willett coming in three strokes behind. He was the first player since Tiger Woods in 2006 to win three successive tournaments in a year and the first European to achieve this since Nick Faldo in 1989. The win took him to a career high of third in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Entering the 2011 season, Kaymer turned down a chance to become a full PGA Tour member; he had become eligible with his win in the 2010 PGA Championship. He stated he would concentrate on the European Tour for 2011, but would play several U.S. events as well.
In January 2011, Kaymer claimed his third Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship title in four years and displaced Tiger Woods as number two in the world rankings.
After his runner-up finish at the 2011 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, Kaymer overtook Lee Westwood as the number one golfer in the world, making him only the second German (after Bernhard Langer) to be the top-ranked golfer in the world. In April, he lost his number one ranking to Westwood who won the Indonesian Masters.
