New No. 1 Kaymer Loses Match Play Final to Donald

Martin Kaymer of Germany claimed the World No. 1 ranking just by reaching Sunday’s final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, knocking Lee Westwood of England down to No. 2 in the world. But Kaymer was no match for another Englishman, Luke Donald, who beat the German 3 and 2 and never trailed in any of his six matches this week.

Donald moved past Tiger Woods and up to No. 3 in the world with the victory, his first on American soil in five years. Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell, who won two matches to reach the round of 16, also moved past Tiger Woods to No. 4 in the world. Tiger, who lost his first round match to Thomas Bjorn, is now No. 5 in the world.
