Martin Kaymer takes the PGA Championship 2010 at Whistling Straits. The 2010 PGA Championship was devoid of big names like Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, ensuring that Tiger keeps his #1 ranking – at least for now. Â The Championship was won by Martin Kaymer, whose win was marked by penalty strokes taken by both Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson.
Kohler, Wisconsin is the setting for the Whistling Straights golf course. Â Part of the interesting thing about golf is that there are many different landscapes for tournaments, and therefore almost infinite outcomes for each match up. Â When the men were going in to the final round one thing was certain – there was going to be a first-time winner.
Dustin Johnson was given a two stroke penalty for grounding his club at the 18th hole. Bubba Watson settled in to a comfortable second place standing.
Tiger Woods did not place in the top of the leaderboard. Â Could it be that we are starting to see the next generation of golfers stage their takeover? After all, those in the top of the ranks were all young, hungry golfers ready to make their mark.
Congrats to Martin Kayme for his win.
