You aren't exactly touching on new ground when you say Martin Kaymer has had a forgettable 2011. A win in early January had him going in the right direction, but that was about all she wrote for his year. A missed cut at Augusta, and then another at the major he was defending, Kaymer didn't really look like the man that moved all the way to number one in the world.

But one great round can change all that. On Sunday, Kaymer was five shots back of Frederik Jacobson at the HSBC Champions with 12 holes to go, and it looked over for the young German. But a holed bunker shot on the 7th landed him his first birdie of the day. And he made another on the 8th. And four in a row from No. 10-13. A par on the par-5 14th looked like a momentum killer, but Kaymer just went on to make three more birdies over his last four holes, and ended up winning the damn thing by three shots.
It was really incredible stuff from Kaymer, as you can see from his scorecard above, and got him his first ever World Golf Championship win.
PLAYERS: Martin Kaymer
