Martin Kaymer is really excited at the fact that he will be facing Tiger Woods at the Abu Dhabi Championship in the New Year. It’s going to be an exciting match-up as Woods has recently regained his top form, and Kaymer recently managed to lift the trophy for the Dubai World Championship for the second consecutive year.
Many pundits feel that Tiger Woods holds the upper hand given that he won the Desert Classic last year, and has also played quite a number of times of the Abu Dhabi course.
Martin Kaymer feels that the addition of Tiger Woods to the Abu Dhabi championship is good as it will help to bring that extra spice to the game and will help to attract a larger audience. Kaymer has made quite a name for himself by managing to win tournaments in a spectacular, but his pulling power (of both fans and sponsors) pales into insignificance when compared to Tiger Woods’.
Kaymer has admitted that he has been in his best shape of late (making it easy to see why he has the shortest online masters golf odds), and that he’s even started to enjoy playing his bunker shots after holing in on the 17th. He has a great chance of continuing to add to his spree of birdies in order to build on his previous fantastic rounds. It will be an intriguing match.
