    Kaymer clinches Scottish Open

    Martin Kaymer won his second tournament in a row by adding the Scottish Open to the French Open title he won last week. He finished with a fourth round 69 at Loch Lomond, two shots clear of Frenchman Raphael Jacquelin and Spaniard Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano

    The 24 year old German golfer now stands at 11th in the world rankings following back-to-back victories and must surely be in contention for a good Open Championship performance.

    "Everyone asks me about the third win in a row,'' Kaymer said, "We are playing a major next week. And the field is going to be the best we have all year long.

    "After last week and this week, I feel really good,'' he said. "My game is solid, so hopefully, I can keep it up.''

    The talk now is of Kaymer winning a hat-trick of titles - the last man to win consecutive tournaments on the European Tour before an Open was Ian Woosnam in 1990. The omens aren't good though - Woosnam finished tied for fourth
