Kaymer gets January's Top shot

Martin Kaymer’s coolness under pressure at the 72nd hole of the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship has earned the talented young German the first European Tour Shot of the Month Award for 2010. Kaymer was tied with England’s Ian Poulter playing the par five 18th hole at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, but the 25 year old produced a brilliant 276 yard three wood second shot which just caught the right side of the 18th green. Two putts for a birdie four secured Kaymer’s second Abu Dhabi title in the space of three years by the slimmest of margins. That powerful stroke enabled Kaymer to collect the January Award ahead of Spain’s Alvaro Quiros, whose outrageous birdie putt across the full length of the ninth green at Doha Golf Club in the final round of the Commercialbank Qatar Masters, presented by Dolphin Energy, was voted into second place. Third place went to Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy, who hit a towering approach to within 20 feet of the pin at the 18th hole in the third round of the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship. The Shot of the Month is awarded to the Tour Member for the shot judged to be the best played each month on The European Tour International Schedule. At the end of the season, the winning shot from each month will be nominated for The European Tour Shot of the Year Award.
