Former golf world leader Martin Kaymer missed the cut at the Barracuda Championship in Truckee, California when he first started after the Corona mandatory break. In his short-term season debut on the US tour, the 35-year-old retired prematurely with two points after two rounds.
Kaymer originally only wanted to return to the USA for the PGA Championship (August 6th to 9th) in San Francisco, but a relaxation of the quarantine rules by the PGA enabled short-term participation in the tournament in Truckee. Previously, players wishing to enter the United States had to go into quarantine for two weeks. However, since the professionals belong to the “bladder” and are to be tested for the corona virus every week anyway, the PGA relaxed the regulations.
Before the corona break, Kaymer was only on the European tour this year, collecting four top 20 results at the beginning of the year. In addition to Kaymer, Alex Cejka also belongs to the field of participants in Truckee. The 49-year-old is in eighth place after two rounds with eight points.
