Martin KaymerSHANGHAI, China (Dave Shedloski/USGA) — Watching Martin Kaymer sail his wedge shot into the water on the 72nd hole of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions on Nov. 9 might oblige one to wonder how he was able to dismiss a world-class field by an unfathomable eight strokes, as he did in June at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst Resort's No. 2 Course.

Well, first of all, that's the unpredictable, unforgivable nature of golf, isn't it? Secondly, such a surprising misstep only invited a deeper level of appreciation for the excellence Kaymer displayed in the 114th U.S. Open.

EDMOND, Oklahoma (Cliff Brunt/AP) — Colin Montgomerie is getting used to winning these big events.

The Scotsman defeated Gene Sauers in a playoff to claim the U.S. Senior Open title at Oak Tree National.

Montgomerie failed to win in 71 PGA Tour majors and four Champions Tour majors until May, when he won the Senior PGA Championship. Now, he has won two of his past three majors to become just the fifth golfer to win both the Senior PGA Championship and U.S. Senior Open in the same year.
