BIG IMPLICATIONS: What would a victory mean to Martin Kaymer?

In the last 20 years, only Woods, McIlroy, Ernie Els and John Daly have won two majors before turning 30.

Since the world ranking began in 1986, only four players have won two majors and were ranked No. 1 before turning 30 — Woods, McIlroy, Els and Seve Ballesteros.

The 29-year-old German spent about 18 months trying to build a more complete game than when he won the 2010 PGA Championship and rose to No. 1 six months later. The project is close to being completed. Kaymer won The Players Championship last month.

He was outside the top 60 just a month ago. A victory would put him just outside the top 10 — and on the way back to where he once was.
