Martin Kaymer is a closer.
How about the big brass ones from the Players Championship in May?
Everyone keeps referencing his mini-meltdown after the rain delay in the final round of that Players Championship but no, he closed.
He usually does.
On the PGA Tour and European Tour when he's had a lead or share of the lead after two rounds, he's four for seven in closing.
2007 Scandinavian Masters: Tied after 36, finished T2
2008 BMW International: Led by five, Won
2008 Abu Dhabi: Led by six, Won
2009 Castello Masters: Tied, finished T2
2011 Abu Dhabi: Led by three, Won
2013 Qatar Masters: Tied, finished T9
2014 Players Championship: Led by one, Won
So yeah, not happening folks.
And if you needed further confirmation that this thing is over, this should be it. Nobody will even be within five of Kaymer.
How important is 36-hole position? Only 3 of the last 20 U.S. Open champions were more than 2 shots back after 2nd round.— Justin Ray (@JustinRayGC) June 13, 2014
Is 6-under the number to shoot for? Only one player has blown a 36-hole lead larger than 4 shots since World War II.— Justin Ray (@JustinRayGC) June 13, 2014
