Martin Kaymer of Germany emerged victorious at the Scottish Open, a two under par fourth round left him fifteen under overall in what has been a fantastic couple of weeks for the player.
The 24 year old picked up the £500,000 cheque at Loch Lomond on Sunday little more than a week after pocketing a similar amount in the French Open, following his play off success against Lee Westwood in France.
The German was European Rookie of the year in 2007 and is now second to Englishman Paul Casey on the European Tours money list. Kaymer, who goes into this week’s British Open looking for a third win on the trot says;
“We are playing a major next week. And the field is going to be the best we have all year long. After last week and this week, I feel really good, my game is solid, so hopefully, I can keep it up.”
Frenchman Raphael Jacquelin finished the Scottish Open in joint second with Spain’s Gonzalo Fernandez-Castono, two shots off the lead.
