Martin Kaymer Wins 2014 US Open

BBC – Germany’s Martin Kaymer clinched his second major title and first US Open after a dominant start-to-finish victory at Pinehurst.

The 29-year-old, who won the US PGA in 2010, dominated for four days to beat Americans Rickie Fowler and Erik Compton by eight shots.

Leading by five overnight, Kaymer shot 69 to end nine under par overall.

He became the fourth European winner in five years and the first from continental Europe.

Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose have all tasted success in the tournament since 2010, but Bernhard Langer – Kaymer’s feted compatriot, and a man he has now emulated by winning two majors – never finished higher than fourth in a US Open.
