Martin Kaymer suffered a major collapse
WORLD No357 Gary Stal landed his maiden European Tour title after US Open champion Martin Kaymer suffered a spectacular collapse at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship yesterday.

Kaymer led by 10 during the final round but carded a double-bogey and triple-bogey to allow Frenchman Stal, 22, to overtake him with a superb 65 that left him on 19 under par, one stroke ahead of world No1 Rory McIlroy, who has now had to settle for second at the tournament four times in the last five years.
