Kaymer Beats Watson in Playoff at PGA Championship for First Major Title
Martin Kaymer won a playoff at the PGA Championship for his first victory at one of golf’s four major tournaments.
The 25-year-old German beat Bubba Watson over three extra holes after they finished regulation play at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin, in a tie for the lead at 11-under par.
“In the playoff it was strange, I was really calm and confident,” Kaymer said at the presentation ceremony.
Dustin Johnson missed out on the playoff after being penalized two shots for grounding his club in a bunker on the 18th hole of regulation play.
Johnson’s score fell to 9-under par after the sanction.
