The Players

Sunday's Birdies and Bogeys

Who were the final-round winners and losers at TPC Sawgrass? It's time to take a closer look with another edition of birdies and bogeys.

The Players Championship: Martin Kaymer

Birdie: Martin Kaymer

A major winner and the World No. 1 by 26, Kaymer, now 29 and ranked No. 61, was almost a forgotten man entering this tournament -- with just three top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour in stroke play events since his win at the 2010 PGA Championship. But the German seized control with a tournament-record-tying 63 on Thursday and kept at least the share of the lead except for one hole on Sunday. Following a final-round weather delay, Kaymer struggled, but a 30-footer for par on No. 17 after his tee shot came inches from finding the water, saved him from being the latest to suffer a late-round collapse at TPC Sawgrass. Kaymer has a long way to get back to the top of the golf world, but after this week, no one would be too surprised if he does.
