U.S. Open

Martin Kaymer is good.
The German seized control at Pinehurst No. 2 with back-to-back 65s to set a U.S. Open scoring record and match the largest 36-hole lead in tournament history. And then he didn't let up. Kaymer finished eight shots ahead of his closest pursuers to win his second major by displaying an all-around game that the USGA hoped to identify in its champion when it set up this course up. His wire-to-wire win came a month after leading from start to finish at the Players. Technically, Kaymer still isn't back to being a top-10 golfer in the world, but he's been the game's most impressive player in 2014.
