Memories of the 2014 PLAYERS Championship Won by Martin Kaymer!

5The 2014 PLAYERS Championship was a heartbreaker for the locals as Martin Kaymer made an unbelievable  putt on the 17th green while Jim Furyk missed a makeable birdie putt on the 18th green to tie. After a rain delay, Kaymer came back out and parred the home hole for his first PLAYERS Championship.

It was a great PLAYERS that featured the near miracle Sunday 66 comeback by Furyk, but headlined Kaymer ‘s 63 to start on Thursday and his persistent wire-to-wire win. Kaymer went on to win the U.S. Open in June by eight strokes at Pinehurst for his second major victory (2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits)!

Facebook updates below and lots of pictures at the end! Enjoy:
