Martin Kaymer had a four-stroke lead at The Players Championship and appeared to be cruising to the title when the rains came down.

Kaymer, strong and smooth before rain and lightning halted play. He was anything but when play resumed after a 90-minute delay. He gave back every stroke but one, and then he held on to win the tournament by one stroke over runner-up Jim Furyk.

Kaymer had appeared to give all of his lead away as he faced a 28-foot putt on the 17th hole. That's when Kaymer summoned all of his talents and drained a long, breaking putt.

Kaymer earned $1.8 million with the victory and was visibly relieved when he drained his final putt on the 18th hole.
