Former golf world number one Martin Kaymer might not have made a cut in the Masters in his last four starts, but he is still unwilling to change the way he approaches the game and will stick to it no matter what the outcome is.
Kaymer, who is currently playing in the World Golf Championships: Cadillac Championships at Doral in Miami showed his sense of humor about his struggles at the Augusta Masters, where he has not made the cut in the four attempts that he has made, not even after he had been crowned the number one golfer in the world at the World Golf Championships: Accenture Match Play Championships last February.
Martin Kaymer approached the Augusta Masters last year by taking three weeks off ahead of the tournament but the results hardly improved anyway for only the second German world number one in golf. According to Kaymer himself, he intentionally switched up his schedule, mainly due to fatigue for touring all year and he hoped that this would help him secure the much sought after cut at the Augusta Masters but a 78 – 72 ending was hardly the result that he had hoped for.
In spite of that, he is insisting that he will keep to the schedule this year as well and jokingly added that even though it hasn’t worked out so far for him at the Augusta Masters, maybe this is the year that everything will change. He also revealed that he had a talk with new world number one Rory McIlroy and gave him some advice, although according to Kaymer, the youngster is much his own man.
Martin Kaymer was in an extremely good mood, having shot 64 in the day and moving up to 7th in the Cadillac Championships, five shots behind the leader.
