Scotland, the 11th of October 2010: Kaymer fired a six-under-par 66 to claim what was his fourth title of the year and third on the European Tour. Westwood however, needing a second place finish to overhaul Tiger Woods at the top of the world golf rankings, finished in equal 11th after struggling to a round of 73.

Since his breakthrough major win at the US PGA Championships in August, Kaymer has won the Dutch Open, been a part of the European Ryder Cup team and now managed his first victory at the home of golf, St. Andrews old course.

“It was always one of my dreams to win here at St. Andrews,” Kaymer said.” I can still remember my first day I came out here when I was an amateur and walking down the first hole, walking over the bridge, all of those things, they felt very special to me. So it was very, very special for me to win here today, in the Home of Golf.”

The last European to win three consecutive PGA Tour events was former world number one Nick Faldo in 1989. Kaymer’s feats on tour this year have now lifted him into the number four spot on the world rankings, behind Woods, Westwood and Phil Mickelson.

Kaymer birdied the closing two holes to take the victory ahead of Briton Danny Willett, overnight leader John Parry finished third after a double-bogey derailed his challenge at the 14th hole. Defending champion Simon Dyson closed with an impressive 66 and a share of fifth place.
