Martin Kaymer 2011 HSBC Champion


Shanghai, China - Martin Kaymer regained his 2010 form just in time to shoot a back nine 29, and a

-20 total to win the HSBC Champoinship at Sheshan Golf Club.Kaymer's 63 was enough for a three

shot victory over Fredrik Jacobson.Graeme McDowell bounced back from his atrocious final round last

week to shoot 67 Sunday, good enough for a third place finish (-16).


Kaymer was candid about his play,"The way I have been practicing and playing I deserved to win,"

"From the moment I holed a bunker shot at the seventh, I didn't miss a lot of golf shots." 

In response to being #1 earlier in the year,"A lot of people don't realize what it takes to be #1 at

the age of 26. I was simply not used to being in the spotlight."


When asked about dealing with being #1 in the future, and if he'll know how to handle it: "For sure, 

but as long as that little English one (Luke Donald) is up there, it's going to be difficult to reach that

top spot again. Luke deserves to be the No. 1."



Scores :


The tie for fourth (-15) moved Rory McIlroy to #2 in the World Rankings.

 Rory is 2 million dollars richer after winning in Shanghai


Shanghai - At the Shanghai Masters, Rory McIlroy (72) outdueled

Anthony Kim (69) in a playoff to win the richest purse in golf.Kim pulled 

the 4 foot putt that he needed to survive to the next hole, McIlroy made

his tap in for his second title this season.


"It's something that I feel like I can still get better at is winning and putting

yourself in the position to win when you're not playing your best," McIlroy

said."Even if it's scrappy golf where you grind it out, you're going to win a lot

more tournaments by doing that rather than playing your best golf the whole

week. I was very happy I was able to pull this one out."


The victory comes on the heels of the world #3 leaving the management

company ISM and agent Andrew "Chubby"Chandler for the Irish company

Horizon Sports fronted by Conor Ridge.Horizon also manages fellow Irishman

Graeme McDowell, and McIlroy's girlfriend and world #1 Tennis player,

Christine Wozniacki.
