Martin Kaymer, the 2 time major champ, suggested that he had not been attempting to avert the "curse" of the par-three champion after a disappointing end to a record-breaking event on Wednesday.
Since the competition began in 1960, no one has ever become par-3 and Masters champ in the same time, a fact that, at times, sees golfers intentionally not shoot the best probable score.
Kaymer (Martin) has never visited Chambers Bay. In fact, he has not ever visited Washington or been to Pacific Northwest.
But then again, he has not ever defended the prestigious title of US Open. However, he would soon need to do everything mentioned above as the 2015 US Open is about to be hosted by Chambers Open, starting from 18th of June.
Martin Kaymer is a German professional golfer, currently a member of both the US PGA Tour as well as the European Tour.
Kaymer has won two major championships during his time as a professional and has reached the highest position of world number one in the Official World Golf Rankings where he stayed for an eight week spell in 2011.
Born in Germany, Martin Kaymer is a top golfer having won eleven trophies on the European Tour and been ranked at the top of the rankings for eight weeks in 2011. He is also the winner of two major championships during his short time as a professional as well.
Born in the Dusseldorf region of Germany, Kaymer showed an aptitude for golf from a very young age and it hardly came as a surprise when he decided to turn professional at the relatively young age of 20 in 2005.
Martin Kaymer gained a two shot lead over Bubba Watson and is currently leading in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. His score stood at 6 under 65, he scored the only eagle of the day and five birdies. The German had previously won the US Open.
Rory McIlroy, Champion of both British Open and PGA, in spite of starting strong, fell back on Tuesday. Jim Furyk, was seven shots behind, his score stood at 72. The final round is scheduled to take place on Wednesday at Port Royal.
Steve Williams has plenty of offers on the table to mull over but he would rather caddy part time for Tiger Woods, if only his former employer gave him a call.
Williams caddied thirteen long years for the former world number one and he planned to slowly ease into retirement after Adam Scott, his employer for the past three and a half years, let him off his duties a month back. But now the 50 year old Kiwi, who still hasn’t quite digested the acrimonious circumstances in which he was fired by Woods in 2011, has said that he would indeed consider returning to caddy for his former employer.
For one of the youngest players in the professional golf face, Rickie Fowler has had one incredible year.
Fowler has kept crowds entertained with his ridiculous choice of hats still his score on the popularity scale is not that appreciable. He strikes today as one of the formidable players as this young genius managed to secure a place in the top five at all the major titles this 2014. He stood second in both the U.S. Open and British Open, was placed third the PGA Championship and finished fifth at the Augusta. This remarkable feat has him lined with greats like Jack and Woods.
This season’s Ryder Cup finale can very well be between Phil Mickelson and Rory Mcllroy, the odds being in Mickelson’s favor.

Bubba Watson is undoubtedly one of the greatest golfers of all time. A true eccentric, he has been known to wow his fans time and again, both on and off the field.
