Some criticized Martin Kaymer for withdrawing from the Chevron World Challenge, hosted by Tiger Woods, after he won the European Tour’s money title, particularly since he gave no reason. Naturally, it was easy to jump to the conclusion that Kaymer’s pockets were too heavy to play in an event all the way in California. But yesterday, Golf365.com’s Matt Cooper noticed that the world No. 3’s girlfriend Alison Micheletti was playing as an amateur in LET Q-school.
And today, thanks to a story on the LET website via Golf365.com, our instincts were right! — Kaymer surprised Alison with his arrival. (Cue for the ladies, including yours truly, to go, “Awww.” In fact, he may be my new favorite player)
