Martin Kaymer, the German golfer, hit a stunning ten-under-par sixty-two earlier on Saturday to break his very own course record as well as advance onto the leaderboard of WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai.
Beginning his round at level par on tenth following scores of seventy and seventy four on the 1st two days, the ex US PGA champ started with an amazing 6 birdies in his 1st seven holes to go to the turn in thirty.
Martin Kaymer carded 4 more birdies on back 9, but torturously missed a short putt at 9th, his final hole, which would have leveled the lowest round of his playing career, a sixty one at Portugal Masters in the year 2007.
Later, while speaking to reporters, Kaymer told that he had some unexpected birdies that always serve. With that fast start he knew that there was a scope at a really low number. He hit fifty nine once before in the year 2006 on EPD Tour and would have loved to do it again.
In spite of his magnificent round, Martin’s ten under par total left him 7 shots behind US golfer Johnson, who still had 5 holes left to play. Nevertheless, Martin believed that he had put himself in with a scope on the last day in an event he won in the year 2011, which was his last European Tour victory.
Martin told that before this round he would have said top was the most naturalistic target he had but obviously he was going to be pushing now to finish as high as possible.
