"Germany's Martin Kaymer and Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium are part of the latest group of European golfers to join the USPGA Tour for the 2013 season.
Kaymer has been eligible to become a member of the USPGA Tour since winning the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in 2010, but has only decided to make the move across the atlantic now.
Three more international players - Ryo Ishikawa of Japan, David Lynn of England and Peter Hanson of Sweden - will become members next year as well.
Kaymer, a former world number one and hero of the European team's recent Ryder Cup victory, will be considered a PGA Tour rookie despite winning 10 career tournaments which include a major win as well as a World Golf Championship.
The inclusion of the five players means 28 of the top 30 players in the latest world rankings will be PGA Tour members."
