Martin Kaymer Wins U.S. Open

Pinehurst, N.C.- Martin Kaymer returned to the elite golfing world Sunday with a U.S. Open victory. Kaymer’s last win was the 2010 PGA Championship. Kaymer became only the seventh wire-to-wire winner in 114 years of the U.S. Open. The German golfer set the 36-hole scoring record by opening with back-to-back 65’s in the first two rounds. He had a five-shot lead heading into the final round and never let anyone closer than four shots over the final forty-eight holes.
Kaymer closed the tournament with a 1-under 69 and was the only player from the last eight groups to break par. He held an eight-shot victory over Rickie Fowler and Erik Compton. Kaymer finished at 9-under 271, the second-lowest score in U.S. Open history next to McIlroy's 268 at Congressional in 2011.
