Kaymer zooms ahead at BMW with 63

ASSOCIATED PRESS

MUNICH, Germany — Martin Kaymer shot a 9-under 63 Friday to take a five-stroke lead after the second round of the BMW International Open.

Kaymer had nine birdies for a 13-under 131 total. Francois Delamontagne shot 66 and Benn Barham shot 68 to share second. Henrik Stenson (68) shared fourth with four others, another stroke back.

Miguel Angel Jimenez, who leads the European order of merit, struggled to a 75 and missed the 1-under cut. John Daly (72), who had three consecutive bogeys on the back nine, also missed the cut.

The 23-year-old Kaymer won his first title at Abu Dhabi in January and is touted as one of Europe’s most promising young players — and the German successor to two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer.

He’s attempting to become the first German winner of the event in its 20-year history.

Langer shot 72, which left him well back. On the sixth hole, Langer made eagle and Kaymer made birdie. The two high-fived each other.

“It was a pleasure to watch him,” Langer said. “I don’t think there’s any limits for him if he keeps that up. I told him, ‘You’re very aggressive, but you’re smart at the same time, like Tiger Woods is or Phil Mickelson.’ ”

Paul Casey (68) and Retief Goosen (69) and David Howell (69) remained near the top of the leaderboard, seven shots behind Kaymer.
