Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood, Luke Donald and Graeme McDowell dominate Official World Golf Rankings
As the phrase goes, history repeats itself. This has happened again in the Official World Golf Rankings that the top four positions are occupied by the Europeans. It was way back in 1992 that the European names were posted on the top four slots of the rankings
and they were dominating in the golfing circuit throughout the world. Those players in 1992 then became ambassadors of golf and helped in promoting this sport in the entire world. The ambitious top four players from Europe are like a Band of Brothers, as they
were team-mates in last year’s Ryder Cup.
The players from the Europe nineteen years back were Ian Harold Woosnam, the great ambassador of golf Sir Nicholas Alexandar Faldo, the Spaniard José Maria Olazábal and another legend of golf from Spain Seve Ballesteros. All these players have been Ryder
Cup members for Europe and played superb golf during the past years. The top four positions are now redefined by German Martin Kaymer who tops the rankings, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald of England and Irishman Graeme McDowell.
In recent years, it is seen that success is at the doorstep of all these four players and their hard work has paid dividends for them. Kaymer replaced Westwood as number one than the Englishman Luke Donald won his Professional Golfer’s Association Tour title
of the WGC-Accenture Match Play by beating Kaymer and reaching his career best at third spot.
The current world number one from Germany has made a huge impact on the golfing circuit in his homeland. He has become the spot-light and is highlighted in every other news paper published there. The player is becoming a regular part of the headlines and
a mentor for many young professional golfers around the world, as he also leads the former world number one Tiger Woods in the list.
Defending U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell has been an inspiration for his compatriot Rory McIlroy. McDowell is going through a great phase since winning the major championship in 2010 and also provided a crucial point for team Europe in last year’s Ryder
Cup, as he also jumped in the Rankings at the fourth spot.
As the new Official Golf Rankings were updated this past week, six Europeans have filled in their spots among the top eight places. Only two experienced players from the USA Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson stand among the top eight, as the list goes on, twelve
Europeans lie in the top twenty spots.  
The PGA Tour Honda Classic is all set up to produce some fireworks starting on 3 March, 2011. Westwood has an opportunity in hand to regain his top position by winning the title and overcoming Kaymer. On the other hand, McIlroy also can move in the top five
rankings if he lifts the title of Honda Classic.
Donald, who won the Accenture Match Play Championships, is very confident of continuing his form in this week’s tournament in Florida, as he was also overwhelmed with his victory against the solid Kaymer by a good margin. The Englishman said that everything
is going in the right direction for him and is hoping to prove the critics wrong.
World number one Kaymer is all charged up and looking forward to this week’s tournament, as he is hoping to lift the title and retain his spot that he lost in the Match Plays. The German was also pleased for achieving a milestone in his career.
