TaylorMade-adidas Golf Staff Player writes history

TaylorMade-adidas Golf staff player Martin Kaymer, impressed with an outstanding performance at the US PGA Championship and with it sealed a place in the European Ryder Cup team.

The TMaG staff player won the dramatic tournament in a play-off over left-hander Bubba Watson. Commenting on his triumph, Kaymer said: "It was an amazing feeling on 18 with two putts to win - that felt pretty cool. I don't realise what has just happened - I just won my first major and I am just on Tour for four years. I have goosebumps."

Kaymer is the first German to win the US PGA Championship.

Quotes:

"I was not so calm in the last round to be honest. The last four or five holes I was quite nervous to be honest. But I played solid golf. My short game was very good today. It was important that I could save pars the last few holes."

"I was never really expecting myself to win here on Sunday. I know that I had a chance, but, you know, majors, they are a little bit different than normal golf tournaments that we play week to week."
