La Jolla (DPA) – After another strong performance, German golf star Martin Kemmer has a chance for a real top result at the 121st US Open.
Mettmann’s 36-year-old played a round of 69 on demand at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, thus finishing two-under par. In the overall standings, Kaymer moved up a shared 21st place finish before the final round on Sunday. .
The two-time major winner, who won the 2014 US Open, is six strokes behind. American Russell Henley is now leading the event, which is concluded with US$12.5 million, along with Mackenzie Hughes of Canada and Louis Osthuizen of South Africa, each with 208 strokes after three rounds.
