Martin Kaymer’s handicap index, in case you were wondering in the wake of his consecutive 65s in the U.S. Open, is +5.9, though in recent months it was as low as +6.9. And it isn’t a guess.
Kaymer is a member at Whisper Rock Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., where the staff posts tournament scores for the 33 PGA Tour members who have a Whisper Rock membership. Kaymer’s scores of 63, 69, 72 and 71 in the middle of his May postings are from the Players Championship that he won.
