it happened here, at a World Golf Championship event.” With his victory Kaymer, the winner of the 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, became just the 10th player to win a major championship and a World Golf Championships tournament. The win moved him to No. 2 on the European Tour’s Order of Merit (official money list) and fourth on the Official World Golf Ranking, despite the fact that 2011 had not been an especially fruitful year. “It was an OK year,” he said. “But now it’s a

ANOTHER FINE SHOWING BY JACOBSON Sweden’s Fredrik Jacobson was in fine form until he three-putted for a bogey on the par-5 eighth. But he hung in there, even after Kaymer strung together his birdies on the back nine to take the lead. To his credit, Jacobson responded with a pair of birdies to stay with him. But after Kaymer birdied No. 17, Jacobson hit a poor drive on the same hole and made a bogey. When Kaymer birdied the home hole, all was lost for the Swede and he made a cautious par on 18 to lock-up second place. “I felt I was very much in it,” said Jacobson.


“Obviously, the 17th was a bit of a swing after my tee shot. I knew if I was going to have a shot at it, I probably had to get up-and-down to have a realistic chance.” Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell closed


with a pair of birdies for a 67 for solo third and his fellow Ulsterman Rory McIlroy birdied the par-5 18th for a 69 and a three-way tie for fourth,

allowing him to move past Lee Westwood to No. 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking.


Finally, PGA champion Keegan Bradley struggled to a 72-72 finale. Had he managed to pick up his third win of the year—his rookie season—it could have easily changed the outcome of the players’ votes for the Jack Nicklaus Trophy as the PGA TOUR’ s Player of the Year. The betting is it won’t be the last time he’s in the running. ■
