In order to overcome his disappointment of a poor start to the Gulf Swing, Martin Kaymer is quite busy in his hotel, where he is practicing putting before the start of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.
In the last 4 years, the German golfer has won three times here in Abu Dhabi and was widely expected to seal a hat-trick of wins fifteen days ago until he missed the cut at 6 over par.
Last week at the Qatar Masters, the 27 year old golfer regained some pride by ending tied for 9th at 7 under par in tough conditions, but Kaymer insists that still he is miles away from the where he wants to be.
Kaymer thinks that playing wise he has improved, but still he needs to work on his putting. He has not done enough in recent times leading up to Abu Dhabi.
He admitted that he struggled in Abu Dhabi and in Qatar, last week; it was hard because of the wind. He was practicing with hti golf clubs in his hotel room as it was difficult to practice in windy conditions.
The only thing which is disappointing him is his putting and the German is putting so much hard work as he really wants to win it again. When asked about the greens in his hotel room, he replied that it was very nice.
Martin Kaymer said that compared to Abu Dhabi, he putted netter in Qatar. Therefore he is feeling slightly better, but he still wants to improve as he has not reached where he wanted to be.
