Martin Kaymer became the first German golfer to win the U.S Open by clinching an eight stroke victory at Pinehurst Resort this morning Australian time.
Kaymer led from start to finish in the 114th U.S Open, to record his second Major win of his career.
After a dominant first three rounds, the German went into the final round with a five stroke lead.
This lead would finish at eight strokes when Kaymer walked off the course after carding a one under par final round.
After soaking up the incredible atmosphere around the 18th green, the German said that he was happy with his performance across the four days.
“The way I played I was very happy, and the way I kept it together yesterday.
“And that gave me a good cushion for today.
“I didn’t make many mistakes, you know, in the last two wins that I had in America, especially this week,” said Kaymer.
Aussie Jason Day finished in a tie for fourth at +1, while world number one Adam Scott finished in a tie for ninth at +2.
