Martin Kaymer set for Masters glory?
New world number Martin Kaymer has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top. He turned professional in 005 but only made his European tour debut in 2007, a year he was named Sir Henry Cotton rookie of the year. Within three years he had won his first major and, soon after turning 26, became world number one. German golf is no longer all about Bernhard Langer.
He secured his first notable win at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in 2008, a tournament he has won twice since. That victory started a prolific run in tour events that he has maintained ever since – he has won four of the last 11 events he has entered and the golf betting suggests he can do well in the Masters.
Kaymer has missed the cut in all three of his Masters appearances, but that will not concern the unflappable German. He has finished sixth, eighth, seventh and first in his four efforts at majors that surrounded last year's Augusta disappointment, his calm play-off win at the PGA Championship proof that he could make good form at the big ones count.
Another excellent showing at the WGC-Accenture Matchplay at Dove Mountain, where he finished runner-up to the red-hot Luke Donald ensured his ascent to the top of the rankings, the ultimate reflection of his superb current form that has been maintained for some time.
He finished in the top 25 in 16 of the 22 European tour events he started last year and has made 58 cuts out of his last 71 attempts. Kaymer often puts himself in a decent leaderboard position in the latter stages of tournaments and it would be a major surprise if he is not in the hunt for the green jacket at Augusta.
