Kaymer Wins at Whisting Straits

Martin Kaymer won the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin in a three hole playoff. This playoff included Bubba Watson, but did not include Dustin Johnson, who was assessed a two stroke penalty after the final hole in which he was tied for the lead. The penalty was for grounding his club, but the spot where he hit from was not clearly a bunker, as it was trampled by the masses the entire tournament. The course has over 1,000 bunkers, so it is very difficult to determine the difference between a bunker and not a bunker sometimes. Watson birdied the first hole of the playoff with a Kaymer par. Kaymer birdied the second playoff hole, and Watson hit a par. The final playoff hole was a five tough 500 yard par four. Both drove right, and Watson went for it on his second shot and hit it into the water. Kaymer won the tourney with a bogey, while Watson double bogeyed. Tiger and Phil both finished in the middle of the pack.
Any thoughts? What do you think of the year of the twenty year old golfer?
