The German star has rocketed to eleventh place in the world rankings, and joins world number seven Henrik Stenson and 2008 European number one Robert Karlsson in Seve’s already imposing line-up for the fourth edition of the Royal Trophy, which will take place on 8-10 January 2010 in Chonburi, Thailand.

Kaymer, 24, has quickly established himself as one of the hottest properties in the world game and is seen as a natural successor to double US Masters champion Bernhard Langer as Germany’s flag-bearer. After registering an illustrious amateur career, Kaymer was crowned the European Tour’s rookie of the year in 2007 and charged into the top ten of the European Order of Merit the following year, finishing just seven places below winner and Royal Trophy team mate Karlsson.

Kaymer succeeded the Swede as Europe’s top player, conquering the European number one position and retaining it for much of 2009, until an injury sidelined him for a number of weeks. The long hitting German is presently ranked in second place in the European Tour Order of Merit, registered yet another successful week finishing runner-up at the Castello Masters in Spain two weeks ago and has every chance of reclaiming the European top spot before the season comes to an end in Dubai later this month. It is no wonder that European skipper Seve Ballesteros said he was thrilled to name Kaymer as the third man on his team sheet.

Ballesteros declared: “Martin is a wonderful addition to the European team. He is a very exciting young player with an extremely bright future. He is becoming a real force in the world game, in similar fashion to what Bernhard (Langer) represented before him.

He led the European Tour Order of Merit this year for an extended period of time and has been playing fantastic golf, with back-to-back wins at the French and Scottish Opens in July before his excellent performance at the PGA Championship, where he finished in sixth place. “I know he is determined to arrive in Thailand for the Royal Trophy fresh, confident and full of enthusiasm, especially as this will be his European debut.”

The young German, already the winner of six European and Challenge Tour titles, is delighted to be heading to Thailand’s Amata Spring Country Club carrying the European colors. He commented: “I am very excited about making my debut in the Royal Trophy, especially under the captaincy of a true golfing legend as Seve Ballesteros. I am so honored to be selected as one of his eight players. 

Seve is clearly committed to send a very strong team to Thailand to try to regain the Royal Trophy back after Asia beat us for the first time this year, and it is fantastic to be thought of as one of the golfers entrusted with this very important task. “I will do my utmost in representing Europe and will work very hard to win for our continent, for Seve and for my team mates. I also want to make this a memorable – and enjoyable – Royal Trophy debut for myself.”

The Europeans will be challenging stewardship of the perpetual solid-silver sixteen-kilogram Royal Trophy which the Asian Team conquered for the first time ever with a colossal victory earlier this year.

Asian Team Captain Naomichi ‘Joe’ Ozaki has already named five of his eight team members including Japanese golf sensation 18-year-old Ryo Ishikawa, Asian Tour Order of Merit leader Thongchai Jaidee, three-time Japan Tour title winner Prayad Marksaeng, Japan Tour Order of Merit leader Yuta Ikeda and nine-time Tour title winner Charlie Wi.
