Martin Kaymer held on through the final five holes for a 2-shot victory at the Nedbank Golf Challenge at a rainy Sun City on Sunday, earning the German his first title of 2012 and something else to celebrate alongside a momentous Ryder Cup-retaining putt at Medinah. Kaymer finished with an 8-under 280 ahead of South Africa's Charl Schwartzel in second. Kaymer was twice in trouble toward the end, first pulling his tee shoot deep into the rough on the par-5 No. 14. He blasted out and eventually made a brilliant birdie. He then bogeyed No. 15 to allow Schwartzel to get within one shot, but recovered his composure through the last three to close out a first win since November 2011. American Bill Haas was third on 3 under par.
