Kaymer shoots record 62

GOLF: Germany&rsquo;s Martin Kaymer fired a course record-equalling 62 to leave the rest in the shade in the France Open.<br /><br />Kaymer, 24, shot an eagle and eight birdies to shoot to nine-under-par and lead a cluster of players by three shots including England&rsquo;s John Bickerton, Sweden&rsquo;s Peter Hanson and last week&rsquo;s BMW International hero Rafa Echenique.<br /><br />The 62 equalled the course record set by Seve Ballesteros but was not Kaymer&rsquo;s lowest European Tour round, however, he shot a 61 at the 2007 Portugal Masters.
