Video: Martin Kaymer’s Damnbuster Ace
By Conor Nagle under The Masters

You won't be needing that putter, sir.

World No6 Martin Kaymer competes this week in the hope of ending a streak of dismal showings at the year’s first major, but his wait to feel the adulation of tournament galleries is already at an end.

As you’re probably aware, attempting to skip the ball across the lake guarding the 16th green has become something of a practice round tradition in recent years. Though anecdotes and incidents abound, the most satisfying and YouTube-worthy effort remains this one, fluked by Vijay Singh way back in 2009.
