Kaymer to play in Irish Open


Martin Kaymer is the latest player to commit to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open hosted by the Rory Foundation.

Kaymer will be making his fourth appearance at the Irish Open and will be joined by a host of fellow Ryder Cup players and European Tour winners at the K Club from May 19-22.

The German, who has not won a regular European Tour event for five years, finished in a tie for tenth at Adare Manor in 2008 but he is hoping to go even better in Kildare next month.

"It’s going to be a big summer for a lot of players, and I’ll be looking to get off to the perfect start at the Irish Open. I’ve only played The K Club once, in the 2007 European Open, and although it maybe wasn’t my best week on the course, I can remember being really impressed by it," Kaymer said.

"The Irish people love their golf and really get behind the players, so it should make for a great atmosphere, especially with such a strong field there. The crowds always turn up and show their support, and that’s one of the main reasons why I enjoy playing in Ireland."

Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell, Shane Lowry and Masters champion Danny Willett will also be teeing up at The K Club, while Ryder Cup hopefuls Rafa Cabrera Bello, Matt Fitzpatrick, Andy Sullivan and Chris Wood, defending champion Soren Kjeldsen, and Austrian Bernd Wiesberger will be hoping to impress European captain Darren Clarke.
