Martin Kaymer is a professional golfer from Germany who is currently a part of the line up in both the US PGA Tour as well as the European Tour. Perhaps his greatest claim to fame was reaching the pinnacle of golf when he climbed the Official Golf World Rankings to become the world number one after finishing as the runner-up in the World Golf Championship Accenture Match Play Championship, but he failed to nail down the spot for himself and lost out to Englishman Lee Westwood after just eight weeks.
Kaymer was born in the city of Dusseldorf in Germany and he took up golf as a profession back in 2005 and became a member of the European Tour, where he has won ten titles till date. The best spell in his career came in 2010 when he won four titles on Tour, the first of which was the Race to Dubai, formerly known as the Order of Merit. That same year, Martin Kaymer won the prestigious PGA Championship, making him only the second German golfer in the history of the golf to win a major championship.
He became only the tenth player in history to have won a major title as well as a World Golf Championship event when he successfully captured the World Golf Championship – HSBC Champions in 2011.
But his biggest claim to fame was when Martin Kaymer sank a putt in the 18th hole of the 2012 Ryder Cup in the final day which won the trophy for the Europeans once again as he successfully overturned a deficit of four points on the final day to retain the title once again, an event that has gone down as one of the greatest moments for the European team in the history of one of golf’s most prestigious titles.
Bubba Watson made it clear that deer-antler spray is something that should not even be whispered to his ears. Although the deer-antler spray came into the limelight after Vijay Singh admitted having used the same, unaware of the drug that it contained that was a strict no-no in the PGA Anti-Doping Policy. Reportedly, the deer-antler spray is found to contain a substance which is apparently a performance-enhancer and is related to human growth hormone.
The reason why Bubba was asked about this alleged spray is because he has been on medications for quite a long time to cure himself of the flu and the sore throat. He pointed out that the golfers who were resorting to such unfair means must have been intoxicated and gone out of their minds. Putting in a bit of joke Bubba Watson said that he would not even go close to trying that stuff ever although he has recovered only 80% of the energy level. He had gone up to the fourth position on a tie at the Tournament of Champions at the season’s opening. Finally, he was too ill to join the Farmers Insurance Open the previous week and decided to sit that tournament.
After recovering, Bubba Watson was seen playing together with Olympic swimming star Michael Phelps last Wednesday just the day before the TPC Scottsdale course golf game began. Both said that they had the best of their experiences and laughed their eyes out the whole time enjoying the spirit of sports. Watson said that to err is human but it did not mean that one would deliberately do that in golf just because he seems to ‘live and die’ for it. “I’ve never done a drug in my life…I never want to be caught when people say I’m a cheater. Yeah, I go to lengths to make sure everything is legal.”
