Martin Kaymer: Banking on momentum

Martin Kaymer: Banking on momentum

Germany's Martin Kaymer will be hoping to carry on where he left off last year when he tees off at the Qatar Masters.

Kaymer was a part of last year's successful European Ryder Cup campaign and also won the Nedbank Challenge at Sun City in November.

"I'm playing well after a slow start to last season and it was great to finish the year with a trophy in South Africa," a confident Kaymer told qatar-masters.com on Monday.

His previous success in the Middle East - he is a three-time winner of the Abu Dhabi Championship - will also stand him in good stead ahead of this year's event.

Joining him at the $2.5 million Qatar Masters, which start on January 23, are fellow Ryder Cup teammates Sergio Garcia and Paul Lawrie. Lawrie is the defending champion in Qatar.

"The excitement of the Ryder Cup was amazing. I may never experience a moment like that again. I'm still proud I was able to come through for my teammates," added Kaymer.
