    Genuine passion for golf.

    Kaymer says about The Open: “We will be playing one of the biggest tournaments in the world on my favourite golf course. The Open has always been the one I want to win the most – it is the most important tournament for me. You really have to play the game. The Old Course still has that feeling of being untouched. It can play in so many different ways, so you have to be creative around there. I love standing on that first tee and hitting a two-iron down the first fairway, and I love how the 18th brings you back into the town. There is a special atmosphere when you walk around. It is such a pure and natural place to be, and there is so much genuine respect and passion for golf”.
