Kaymer All Set To Defend Nedbank Golf Challenge

Martin Kaymer, the champion of Nedbank Golf Challenge the previous season, is all set to defend his title at the esteemed tournament in its 2013 session as well. The Nedbank Golf Challenge 2013 is held at Sun City’s Gary Player Country Club.

The latest Golf Challenge seems tougher this time given the expansion in player participation which is sure to make the competition harder for the dapper German golfer. In place of the usual norm of 12 players followed by the previous Golf Challenge editions, this time the tournament has been extended to come up with a thirty-man field. Interestingly, it’s the first time that the Nedbank Tour has been officially exhibited on European Tour in its long history of 33 years.

In regards to the roster of participants for the Sun City Golf Challenge this year, the line-up seems pretty high-profile with heavyweight names like Luke Donald, Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose & Henrik Stenson. Donald had been World’s Number One 2 years back while Stenson is the present European # 1. Justin Rose is the illustrious American Open Champion.

“I cherish coming here as it is the final tournament of 2013 & one can allot everything he has got into it”, Kaymer said. “The past year was my last opportunity, this year would be my last opportunity, so I prefer to stay under the pressure. I will be great to end with the best possible high & a triumph will be the absolute.”

Stenson was the Nedbank winner in the year 2008 but he lost to Allenby the very next year. The Swedish was down with a bad wrist injury for long post his win at Dubai DP World Tour. He had to withdraw from SA Open given the severity of the wrist wound that irked him all through Final series.

Martin Kaymer defends tournament snub

Martin Kaymer, the German golf player, has defended his act to be a part of the top European golfers in missing Seve Trophy t hat will take place next week. The German golfer, who holed the putt which retained Ryder Cup for Europe in Miracle at Medinah, stated that he could not find extra time in his calendar to take part in the match play competition.

Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose have all made themselves inaccessible to represent United Kingdom as well as Ireland squad in Paris. Martin has confirmed that he would not play for Continental Europe.,

Before the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship this week, Martin told that he played a whole lot of events he past few weeks and there are very important events coming up. If one plays too much, he/she enter tournaments at just 80 per cent. For his caddie, the people he work with and himself; it is not right if one enter tournaments where he/she could not be at their best.

Martin told that Seve’s name definitely does play a role but unfortunately he never had the pleasure of meeting him. Jose Olazabal him me if he could play in the season’s middle and he said that he would like to, but let him see if he is going to win here and there, then there is a better possibility. He added that he has not been satisfied with himself this season; therefore, that is why he needed to concentrate on himself at present. He could not do his best for the squad at present and he is quite sure that other people are more motivated to play. It is nothing really to do that he does not like Seve.
