Martin Kaymer returns after foot injury

Talented young German Martin Kaymer will make his comeback from injury at this week’s Castello Masters in Spain.

The 24-year-old, who won back-to-back tournaments in July when he lifted the French Open and Scottish Open trophies, has been sidelined by a foot problem for seven weeks.

“I am really looking forward to getting back out on the golf course,” said Kaymer on the tour’s official website on Monday.

“My foot has healed well and the doctor has told me I am fit, to put pressure on the foot and play normally.”

Kaymer was injured in a go-karting accident and his long absence has allowed British pair Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy to overtake him in the Race to Dubai money list.

“Hopefully, I can get back to the form I was in before the accident because I was playing great and was top in the Race to Dubai,” he said.

“If I can get back to that kind of form I have a chance to win tournaments and the Race to Dubai itself. But I have to be patient and make sure I am confident my foot is 100 percent this week.”

World number 10 Sergio Garcia returns to the scene of his tear-jerking victory in Castellon last year when he defends his title at the Club de Campo del Mediterraneo where his father is the club professional.

“Winning the Castello Masters was one of the most emotional moments of my career,” said the Spaniard. “It was a dream come true and a very special victory in front of all my family, friends and members of the club where I have grown up.

“Many people came to watch that day and they made me feel they wanted me to win which is something I will never forget. I started crying during the prize giving as it was so emotional.”

The tournament starts on Thursday.
