Kaymer finally proving himself to be up there with the best

Lee Westwood must be shaking in his boots right now, glancing nervously over his shoulder as he awaits the announcement of the new world number one at the end of the month.


The reason behind Westwood's nerves is simple and comes in the form of formidable German talent, Martin Kaymer, who is fresh off the back of an impressive victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and now preparing for an event in Spain at the end of the month that could, deservedly in many people's eyes, see him overtake both Westwood and Tiger Woods at the pinnacle of golf's rankings. 


Kaymer's victory in Scotland was his third in a row (making him the first European golfer since Nick Faldo in the 1980s to pull off such a feat) and, although not quite as worthy of stealing all the headlines as his maiden Major win a couple of months ago in the US PGA, capped an impressive year for the German, who, despite seeming to have a wealth of experience under his belt already, is still only 25 years of age. 


The German came to many Europeans' attention with his performance at this year's Ryder Cup, with his unassuming but quietly confident manner worthy of genuine admiration.


However, despite the way in which he more often than not simply refuses to crumble under the most intense pressure, it is his versatility that is perhaps the most admirable attribute Kaymer is able to boast and the one which makes Golf betting odds back him for success right now.


Golf Betting pundits from around the world recognise that European golf is undoubtedly in a healthy state at the moment and no individual represents this more accurately than the German. He'll undoubtedly be one to keep an eye on for many years to come and is certainly deserving of always being among the favourites in the golf odds for any tournament.
