"He might be winless in 2012, but Martin Kaymer is certain a victory is just around the corner.
Kaymer's manager Johan Elliot said he would either win this week's DP World Tour Championship or next week's Sun City Challenge in South Africa - and the Ryder Cup hero thinks he may be on to something.`
"I've been patient for a long time now and I think Johan's right," Kaymer told Reuters. "I'm playing very well and I'm getting closer and closer.
"Without putting too much pressure on myself, I have a very good chance of winning this week or next. The way I play golf it shouldn't take too much longer."
Perhaps ironically, a year that has seen him go without a professional victory (so far) may be one of the most memorable of Kaymer's career, and that's all down to the Ryder Cup at Medinah, where the 27-year-old had the huge honour of sinking the winning putt for Europe.
"To make something that big happen for yourself, your country and your continent is a huge achievement," said Kaymer. "If you know you can make those things happen, those important shots, those important putts - it doesn't get any bigger.
"There is no goal in my life where there will be more pressure or more excitement than at Medinah where I had that little six-footer for the Ryder Cup.""
