PINEHURST, N. Vapormax Plus Femme .C. -- The U.S. Open trophy Martin Kaymer won Sunday was all he needed to prove he was anything but a one-hit wonder in the majors, and that the two years he spent trying to build a complete game were worth all the doubt that followed him. As he set it down on the table, Kaymer rubbed off a tiny smudge on the gleaming silver, which was only fitting. Over four days at Pinehurst No. 2, he dusted the field in a performance that ranks among the best. Kaymer set the 36-hole scoring record by opening with a pair of 65s. He never let anyone closer than four shots over the final 48 holes. Equipped with a five-shot lead, he was the only player from the last eight groups to break par. Welcome back, Martin. "You want to win majors in your career, but if you can win one more, it means so much more," Kaymer said after closing with a 1-under 69 for an eight-shot victory over Rickie Fowler and two-time heart transplant recipient Erik Compton. "Some people, especially when I went through that low, called me a one-hit wonder and those things. So its quite nice proof, even though I dont feel like I need to prove a lot to people. But somehow, its quite satisfying to have two under your belt." The 29-year-old German is a forgotten star no more. Kaymer returned to the elite in golf by turning the toughest test in golf into a runaway at Pinehurst No. 2, becoming only the seventh player to go wire-to-wire in the 114 years of the U.S. Open. Only three players finished the championship under par. One guy appeared to be playing a different tournament. "No one was catching Kaymer this week," Compton said. "I was playing for second. I think we all were playing for second." Only a late bogey kept Kaymer from joining Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy as the only players to finish a U.S. Open in double digits under par. He let his putter fall to the ground when his 15-foot par putt on the 18th hole dropped into the centre of the cup, like so many others had this week. Kaymer finished at 9-under 271. His last two wins are the U.S. Open and The Players Championship, with the strongest and deepest field in golf. He never trailed after any round in both of them. "Martin was playing his own tournament," Fowler said after recovering from a double bogey on the fourth hole to close with a 72. This U.S. Open really ended Friday. No one had ever opened 65-65 in the U.S. Open, which broke the 36-hole record that McIlroy set three years ago rain-softened Congressional. When it could have gotten away from Kaymer in the third round, he stayed strong for a stabilizing 72. "He kind of killed the event in the first two days," Henrik Stenson said. "He went out and shot two 65s and left everyone in the dust." He did it again in the final round. Knowing the gallery was against him -- the loud cheers for Fowler, clapping when Kaymers ball bounded over the back of the second green -- he holed a 10-foot par putt, and then drilled a driver on the 313-yard third hole onto the green to set up a two-putt birdie. Fowler, in the final group of a major for the first time, fell back quickly on the fourth hole. He sent his third shot from a sandy path over the green and into some pine trees and had to make a 25-foot putt just to escape with double bogey. "It was probably the toughest day that I played golf today, especially the first nine," Kaymer said. "Because if you have two or three Americans chasing you, playing in America, its never easy being a foreigner. But I said at the ceremony as well that the fans were very fair. But it was a tough one. If you lead by five shots, its not easy. "A lot of people think, Well, you have a little bit of a cushion. But if you approach that day in that way, with that attitude, it can be gone so quickly." No chance on this day. Compton was the only player who really put up a fight. His birdie on No. 8 got him within four shots. Three bogeys in a five-hole stretch on the back nine did him in. Even so, Compton received a standing ovation walking the 18th green. He somehow scratched out a par from 50 yards away against the lip of a bunker. It wasnt the Hollywood script he wanted, but it wasnt a bad consolation -- his first trip to the Masters next April. "Ive never gotten this far along in my story," Compton said. "Im thrilled." Kaymer joined Seve Ballesteros, Ernie Els, Woods and McIlroy as the only players to win two majors and be No. 1 in the world before turning 30 since the world ranking began in 1986. He is the fourth European in the last five years to win the U.S. Open, after Europeans had gone 40 years without this title. Its a rebirth for Kaymer, who reached No. 1 in the world in February 2011, only to believe that he needed a more rounded game. His preferred shot was a fade. Kaymer spent two hard years and a lot of lonely hours on the range in Germany and his American home in Scottsdale, Arizona. He was as low as No. 63 in the world six weeks ago. Now he goes to No. 11. Woods still holds the most dominant U.S. Open win -- 15 shots at Pebble Beach in 2000. McIlroy holds the scoring record at 16-under 268. "Im wondering how he did it," McIlroy said. "Obviously, if you limit the mistakes, you might end up a couple under for the week. But to do what hes doing ... I think its nearly more impressive than what I did at Congressional." Among those who congratulated Kaymer on the 18th green was Sandra Gal, a German player on the LPGA Tour. The U.S. Womens Open takes over Pinehurst No. 2 on Monday. Air Max 2018 Elite Pas Cher .J.

On Thursday theyll learn even more. Despite the cloud of uncertainty that has followed them around from the moment general manager Masai Ujiri was brought in to put his stamp on the franchise, the Raptors have surpassed all pre-season expectations.Englands rugby Grand Slam-winning coach Eddie Jones has given Crystal Palace a motivational talk as they build up to an FA Cup final season finale. Before facing Manchester United in the cup final at Wembley on May 21, Alan Pardews squad have three Premier League matches to get through.Although now unlikely, the Eagles still face the mathematical possibility of relegation and ahead of Saturdays trip to his former club Newcastle, Pardew invited Jones to give his current charges a pep talk on Thursday. If they cant take on board his comments, then were in trouble. Alan Pardew Were still not mathematically safe in the Premier League, so we still have work to do, which is why I asked Eddie Jones to come in, and he had a few words with the team about complacency and about what teams do, said Pardew.Jones was appointed England rugby head coach following the sides dismal early exit from the World Cup and inspired them a few months later to win the Six Nations tournament, clinching their first Grand Slam since 2003 in the process. Pardew, whose side beat Watford 2-1 in Sundays FA Cup semi-final, added: Hes been involved in World Cups with other nations, is a multi-cultural personality, someone who is engaging. If they cant take on board his comments then were in trouble.We share a couple of professional friends. Jeremy Snape [Palace sports psychologist] is one of those, and Eddie asked me about the England rugby team.Weve been quite close since hes been here, and a lot of the views he has on trying to get more from individual players and the group run parallel with my own. Trying to get the best out of his ideas is nice for me. It was nice to have him here: good timing, what with the result we had [defeating Watford]. Jones is happy to offer pointers to Palace The Palace boss revealed Jones visit stemmed from a belief his players would benefit from hearing a new voice, with the talk coming on the same day Teddy Sheringham spoke to the clubs academy coaches and Pardew believes the use of those speakers helps to stimulate his squad.Ive always encouraged other coaches and managers to be involved, with comments from them, Pardew said. The most important point [Jones made] was that great teams can get to finals, but great teams only win finals if theyre great all the time. Air Max 97 Off White. . We have to be great this Saturday. That was the main key point I took from him.We cant turn up at Newcastle and let our standards down from Sunday otherwise were doing a disservice to our fans and ourselves. Hes given a lot of examples of how communication between the team and the coaches is important. The players just absorbed it. Its nice to hear it from somebody from a different genre, a different field, carrying the weight he does. Its a position that only great coaches and managers have. Bakary Sako (l), Jason Puncheon and Mile Jedinak (r) of Crystal Palace celebrate victory over Watford I worked it out that [France international] Yohan Cabaye will get a two-week holiday this year. Thats a long time to stimulate a footballer. Same with [my] Wales [internationals at Euro 2016]. Youve got to stimulate players and staff to try and improve yourself.Victory for Palace at St James Park would edge Newcastle even closer to relegation, just 17 months after Pardew left to join Palace at a time when Newcastle appeared reasonably strong. For all that he was an unpopular figure in the north-east, the manager insists he is desperate to see Newcastle survive, and believes they are an improving team again under Rafael Benitez. Alan Pardew wants his players to be up for the Newcastle game Theyre a much stronger team, said Pardew, who will monitor Wilfried Zaha before selecting his starting XI because of a leg injury the winger is carrying.Rafa is a very experienced manager who has managed at the top of the game, and hes got them in a much better place to win this game, and that worries me because my job is to win this game.The club is a beast when its going well, but it can be equally as destructive when things arent going well. At the moment, things are going well, so its a big bear well have to fight. Also See: Pardew: I hope Newcastle survive Wickham: I need to be better Palace fixtures Get a £10 free bet! ' ' '
