Sport In Brief: Kaymer keeps hopes alive in Paris
Sunday 03 July 2011
Martin Kaymer is confident he can win a second French Open title in three years, despite starting the final round in Paris today three shots behind the joint English leaders, Mark Foster and James Morrison.
The German shot a four-under 67 in the third round for a six-under 207, three shots off the lead and two behind Scotland's Richie Ramsay. With a swing change showing signs of paying off Kaymer, the world No 4, is backing himself to win on a course where in 2009 he beat the current world No 2, Lee Westwood, in a play-off.
