Storyline to Watch: Can Kaymer Continue to Dominate?

Martin Kaymer has been on fire during the Players Championship and does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon.

The German star shot a course-record 63 (nine under par) during the opening round and followed it up with a strong three-under on Friday. He went into the clubhouse after Round 2 as the leader by a narrow margin and is certain to be in the running to claim golf's coveted "fifth major."

Kaymer took some time to explain how he has been playing so well at Ponte Vedra Beach in Florida this weekend, as per CBS Sports: "I stopped thinking. I thought a lot the last two years about swing changes...that every shot I made I reflect on it, what I did wrong, what I did right."

The 29-year-old was once ranked No. 1 in the world but has slipped down the ranking significantly in recent years. Kaymer hasn’t won a tournament since the end of 2011, but he clearly seems to have corrected the swing issues that have recently plagued him.

He spoke about his renewed confidence and improved ability to hit the ball with CBS Sports:

It just clicked a little bit. I thought, 'OK, I know I can hit pretty much every shot when I needed to hit it.' If it's a draw, if it's a fade, low or high, I know that I can do it. It's just a matter of getting the confidence on the golf course and then letting it happen and really doing it.

There is no doubt that this newfound confidence is paying dividends during the Players Championship and will likely propel Kaymer to his first top-10 finish of 2014.

What remains to be seen is if he can hold on for two more rounds, especially now that the level of competition is almost certainly going to pick up in intensity. Jordan Spieth boasts a 36-hole score of 11-under par and is just one stroke behind the leader.

Michael Whitmer of the Boston Globe also noted that Kaymer still has a lot of work to do if he plans to set the 72-hole record at TPC Sawgrass:

If Kaymer can keep up his current pace, the Dusseldorf native is undoubtedly going to be the one to watch when he gets back on the course for the third round. Make sure you tune in and check back here to see his score and others on our constantly updated leaderboard.
