One success story after another.
The Players Championship. The US Open 2014. The European Ryder Cup. What do the three professional golf tournaments have in common? Twenty-nine year-old Martin Kaymer from Düsseldorf, sinks one ball after another. “I’ve always believed I could do it,” admitted Kaymer after the Players Championship, his first major tournament title in two and a half years. “I knew I could win a golf championship again. It’s a very satisfying feeling. I’ve worked hard and in recent years I’ve been through lots of ups and downs. You can’t force things in golf.”
This was the start of an incredibly good season; Martin Kaymer swept the board: when he won the US Open, he was leading by nine holes before the end of the match and his huge lead proved the pundits wrong, who watched Kaymer take his second major title. At the Ryder Cup in Scotland in 2014, Kaymer played consistently well, hitting many fairways and greens and allowing Europe to take the title.
