Kaymer Takes Dunhill Links Title

Martin KaymerGerman Martin Kaymer made it an incredible three wins in a row with a three-stroke victory in the Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews today.

Kaymer, winner of the US PGA title in August and the KLM Open in Holland last month, shot a superb closing 66 in cold and windy conditions to leave England’s Danny Willett still chasing his first European Tour title.

Lee Westwood, needing a top two finish to replace Tiger Woods as world number one, fell back to joint 11th with a 73.

But Westwood, struggling with a recurrence of his calf injury, then confirmed he will not play again until next month at the earliest – and that guarantees he will end the five-year reign of Woods in three weeks’ time unless the American changes his plans and enters a tournament.
