Martin Kaymer has sunflower on golf bag to honor late mother
Martin Kaymer is having one heck of a season for his parents.
Kaymer won The Players Championship last month on Mother’s Day, and he’s set to win the US Open at Pinehurst on Father’s Day. The last golfer to accomplish the feat was Tom Kite in 1992.
Kaymer’s father is still alive, but his mother died of skin cancer six years ago. He still honors her with her favorite flower — the sunflower — stitched on his golf bag. That’s prime real estate for potential sponsors, but Kaymer uses it to commemorate his mother instead. Pretty sweet move by him.
