Record-breaking Kaymer claims Abu Dhabi hat-trick

23/01/2011
Records tumbled as defending champion Martin Kaymer wrote a new chapter in Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship history with his third win in four years on Abu Dhabi Golf Club’s National Course.
 
The German carded a bogey-free round of 66 to finish 24-under par – a score which beat his own four-day National Course record, set last year, by three shots – to finish eight shots clear of nearest challenger, Ulster’s Rory McIlroy.
 
Kaymer’s historic hat-trick saw him leapfrog America’s Tiger Woods into second place in the World Rankings and means the 26-year old will keep the event’s coveted Falcon Trophy - presented to him by His Highness Sheikh Hazza Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, National Security Advisor, Vice Chairman of Executive Council and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Sports Council, and in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman, Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA), the tournament organiser.

The next major golfing event in the UAE capital will be the Saadiyat Beach Classic, taking place at the Gary Player-designed Saadiyat Beach Golf Club on January 25, 2011. The Classic will welcome Abu Dhabi favourites Paul Casey and Ian Poulter, along with European Tour winner Matteo Manessero, winning Ryder Cup Captain Colin Montgomerie and Ryder Cup vice captain Thomas Bjorn in a pro/celeb–am format.
