Martin Kaymer (Duitsland) wen 2014 se "5de Major" Loop voor van dag 1 tot aan die einde! "Kaymer wins Players Championship" "Martin Kaymer survived a late double-bogey to win the US PGA Tour's prestigious Players Championship on Sunday by one stroke over Jim Furyk. Kaymer notched his first title worldwide since he won the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa on December 2, 2012, coming up with three clutch pars to close out a one-under par 71 for a 13-under total of 275. "It's always difficult to come back after a little break, but obviously you see the leaderboard, you see where you are, but I played really, really well the first 14 holes," Kaymer stated. "I made a couple wrong decisions (after the weather delay). On 16, I should have chipped it. It was not the right decision, but that was a big putt on 17." The victory in the $10 million tournament was just the second of Kaymer's career on the US PGA Tour – to go with his major triumph at the 2010 PGA Championship. The former world No 1 from Germany ...
Final from 1. Martin Kaymer -13 2. Jim Furyk -12 3. Sergio Garcia -11 T4. Justin Rose & Jordan Spieth -10 said that Jordan Spieth can/will undo Tiger's records, the boy is talent but still got to learn to keep calm. Well done former Nedbank Golf Challenge winner Martin Kaymer.
Stephen Gallacher has earned a spot on Europe's team for the EurAsia Cup in March thanks to his Dubai Desert Classic victory. Gallacher, Thomas Bjorn, Joost Luiten and captain Miguel Angel Jimenez are the latest four qualifiers for the team, based on the Official World Golf Rankings. Jimenez, who was named captain for the Kuala Lumpur event back in December, still has two more picks to make to round out his 10-strong selection to take on an Asia team led by Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee. Graeme McDowell, Jamie Donaldson, Victor Dubuisson and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano had already secured their places in the first batch of automatic qualifers at the end of the 2013 Race to Dubai. Jimenez said: "I have a very nice team with the addition of these qualifiers. Thomas Bjorn has been playing very well for some time and particularly at the end of last year in winning the Nedbank Golf Challenge. He is right on form. "Stephen Gallacher has just won in Dubai for the second year in a row at the Emirates so he is clearly ...
Thomas Bjorn won the Nedbank Golf Challenge by two shots from Sergio Garcia & Jamie Donaldson.
BJORN PULLS OFF GREAT NEDBANK HEIST Thomas Bjorn eagled the 10th and 14th at Gary Player Country Club during his Sunday march to victory at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, which he won by two shots on 20-under-par. “There were two big moments, obviously the two eagles on the back 9 on a Sunday, that does not happen very often. I am proud of myself this week, I kept to my game plan, I played really well,” he said. For Bjorn the victory refilled his confidence tank, but his first win in South Africa came during a sad time for the nation, who mourned the loss of former president Nelson Mandela after his passing on Wednesday night. “Nelson Mandela was a man of the world, not just a man of South Africa. The man meant so much to everybody and he had the ability to see the best in everything. If we can all just do a little bit more, or be a little bit more like him, this world will be a better place. That’s the inspiration that he left,” he said. SCORES (RSA unless otherwise specified): 268 - Thomas Bjorn ...

The format change for the 2013 Nedbank Golf Challenge marks one of the most significant changes in the history of a tournament that since 1981 has positioned itself at the forefront of world golf.   The inaugural Nedbank Golf Challenge ushered in golf’s first million-dollar purse to be contested by only five players. The winner, Johnny Miller, received $500 000. It was an exorbitant amount considering that, at the time, Tom Watson held the money-earning record for a season on the PGA Tour of $530 000.   The tournament grew from an initial five-man field to 10 in the early Eighties and with sizeable payouts down to even the last-place finisher.   In 1987, the event raised the bar again when Ian Woosnam won the first winner-takes-all $1-million cheque for his victory at Sun City that year.  In 2000, the tournament went through another major restructuring of its prizemoney when it celebrated the new millennium by offering a $2-million first prize to the winner. Ernie Els took the title that year after ...
