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."
