Get your Mooju back – Martin Kaymer rediscovers his winning touch at a Major
After a long spell in the wilderness, the German produced an incredible 72 holes of golf to win the US Open on Sunday night...
It's been a long road back to Major glory for Martin Kaymer, who shot a final round 69 to finish eight shots clear of runner-up Eric Compton, but he's now established himself as one of Europe's greatest ever golfers.
The 29 year old saw his form dip drastically after winning the US PGA Championship back in 2010. There have been a few memorable moments since then including rolling the winning putt for Europe in their Ryder Cup win at Medinah, but on an individual level he dropped as low as 63rd in the world rankings and failed to make any impact in the big four tournaments.
This year we saw a different Martin Kaymer. His form improved immeasurably and his win at the Players Championship a few weeks ago confirmed that the German was back, but no one could have foreseen what he did at Pinehurst No.2 last weekend.
He shot 65, 65, 72, 69 to finish on 9 under par. To put that into context, only two other people finished below par and some long-time golf reporters are calling it "one of the most dominant US Open performances in history" and it's hard to disagree.
Now that Kaymer has got his Mooju back, he looks like he's going to be the man to stop for the rest of the season.
