Martin Kaymer explains Augusta changes

2015 04 468825750

Martin Kaymer has explained how he had to change his game to play the Masters after four missed cuts in his first four appearances at Augusta.


The 30-year-old German was world No.1 when he missed the cut for a fourth successive time in 2011, a move which prompted him to alter his game to suit the demands of the 7,435 yard course.

In a video with sponsor Mercedes Benz, the two-time major winner said: “My coach and me sat down after 2011, I was No.1 in the world, came to Augusta, missed the cut and I wasn’t able to play the golf course the way I wanted. It was really frustrating.

“When you play the natural draw, it’s an advantage at Augusta. It’s not my natural shot so I therefore needed to make it at least something I could use if I needed to and I made the adjustments that were necessary. So now, I’m much more comfortable playing at Augusta.”

And while Martin Kaymer has never really been in contention at the tournament, his results have improved recently, making it to the weekend in the past three years with his best finish of T31 coming in 2014, showing that the work he has put in has had some effect.
