Martin Kaymer Win US Open

Martin Kaymer won his second major championship after a dominant performance at the 114th US Open at Pinehurst and plays like a man to make history, as he ended the open by lunchtime on the Friday, opening with a dazzling of 65s. His round two-round total was a tournament record, and his six-stroke lead matched the halfway advantage from two iconic performances.

The German crushed his rivals to win by eight shits- a staggering performance that will draw comparison to the great performances in major championship history, Henrik Stenson and Dustin Johnson failed to mount a serious challenge but none of the other players in the field stood a chance with Kaymer playing such domineering golf.

Many people were stunned with Kaymer’s amazing play as he proved to himself and made history, “it was probably the best two rounds I’ve ever seen since I’ve been playing” said his shell-shocked playing partner Keegan Bradley.

Over 36 holes Kaymer’s all-around virtuosity has been on full display. During bogeyless Friday he ripped long straight drives, precise iron play and a molten putter. But sitting on a historic lead at the US Open is a challenge more mentally than physically, and this isn’t good news for his pursuers.
