The world’s No.1 golf club German Martin Kaymer recognized he made a mistake trying to change his game strategy at the Masters this month.
Though Kaymer missed the halfway cut at Augusta National for the 4th time in four visits, it was the first time he has been working hard to fit the ball into one of the holes.
The 26-year-old golfer, who has been paired with Lee Westwood, opened with a 6-over-par 78. And though he improved his shoots in the second round, he still ended for 82nd in the 99-strong field.
The German player said he was trying to play in a perfect way from the very first day, and that was his biggest fault. The statement was made on Wednesday at Wentworth – the place he is going to win the European Tour’s prestigious BMW PGA Championship title next month. He already has the PGA Championship crown he won in August.
Martin Kaymer revealed he was playing the golf course in a way he’s not used to. The way he made low shots, tried to place the ball on the right part of the hole, etc. wasn’t the part of his regular game, and he was going to change the tactics. The next day he played his usual game, and had a lot more better results than in the previous one.
Kaymer could not be the No.1 soon, especially taking into consideration he will have to face 3 major champions at Wentworth on May 26-29 Charl Schwartzel, Graeme McDowell and Louis Oosthuizen.
However, he is aware of the situation and though he hopes he will never drop off the first place, he isn’t afraid of becoming word’s No. 2, 3, 5….According to the German player, as long as he puts all his efforts and works flat out, this is all he can do for the game.
