Martin Kaymer is in the midst of his best season on Tour, but he hasn’t played well since his dominant performance at Pinehurst.

The morning after the Open Championship, a bleary-eyed Rickie Fowler walked up to the patio outside the Ryder Cup Room at Wentworth Golf Club, sipping on a cup of coffee.

Martin Kaymer capped off his record-setting U.S. Open performance with a 10-footer for par to win the 114th edition by eight strokes over Erik Compton and Rickie Fowler.

Martin Kaymer has set a blistering 10-under pace at the midway point of the 114th U.S. Open. Earlier in the week, no one would have thought consecutive 65s were possible, but the USGA and Mother Nature softened up the course enough to make the holes locations at Pinehurst No. 2 accessible.

He’s the story of the tournament, so it’s not surprise that the other players were asked about him as they finished their rounds on Friday. Here’s what they had to say.
