Martin Kaymer makes his first playing appearance since his US Open win today at The BMW International Open. The tournament gets underway in Cologne, Germany, and this year’s venue is a mere 30 kilometres from where Kaymer grew up. As the first German US Open victor; he’s sure to receive a hero’s welcome.

The LPGA Tour’s finest are teeing up at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship today. Michelle Wie will of course be looking to continue her fine form since the US Women’s Open victory, but the local crowds will be behind world no.1 Stacy Lewis as she returns to her second home fresh from her runner-up finish at the Women’s US Open. The event organisers have even had some ‘I Heart Stacy Lewis’ t-shirts made up for her loyal fans.

Away from the pro’s now, and amateurs from both sides of the Atlantic are this week competing in the Palmer Cup. The event takes place at Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey this weekend and boasts an impressive alumni; including 2010 U.S. Open Champion, Graeme McDowell. With an almost identical format to the Ryder cup, European head coach Andrew Coltart believes it has an important place in the game.

SOT: Wonderful young kids, great young men incredibly enthusiastic and looking forward to what could be an incredible future for them in the game. They are all buzzing; it’s an incredible opportunity to come up against what arguably is one of the biggest rivalries in sport, the Americans. And they are all absolutely up for it and buzzing raring to go.

That’s all for today. In the meantime you can follow us on Twitter @golfingworldtv and we’re on Facebook and Instagram too. Thanks for watching.
