Belated Father's Day present from Kaymer?
PINEHURST, N.C. -- Father's Day in Germany is observed on Ascension Day, which is 39 days after Easter Sunday. This year, Ascension Day was on May 29. It is a public holiday in the country.
Martin Kaymer's father, Horst, a retired corporate executive, is in Germany this week watching his son in the U.S. Open on Sky Germany. Martin's older brother, Philip, told me that his father prefers to watch the telecast in English because the German announcers don't always provide the best commentary.
Although Father's Day has officially passed in Germany, Horst will certainly appreciate a belated present of his son winning the U.S. Open.
