With his eight-shot victory at Pinehurst No. 2 in the 2014 U.S. Open, Kaymer joined Tiger Woods as the only player to win a U.S. Open, PGA Championship, Players Championship, and a WGC event before their 30th birthday. Kaymer was the sole leader every day.

Won the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship for the third time in four years, then reached the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Lost to Luke Donald, but captured the No. 1 ranking in the Official World Golf Ranking, a position he held for six weeks. By the end of the 2011 season, he gained his first WGC title with a stunning, final-round 63 to capture the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai.
