PINEHURST, Nc.--Martin Kaymer took a five shot lead going into the final day of the U.S. Open.

A size-able margin but still plenty of pressure. Or so you would think.

Martin Kaymer was in just total control ever since he teed off on Thursday. When you can make birdies like this when you already have a big lead you are in good shape. The birdie on the 14th. Kaymer back to -10.

So there was a battle for second place. Rickie Fowler would miss this par putt on 17. Ends up bogeying the hole and finishes at -1.

To the 18th. An incredible story. Erik Compton has had two successful heart transplants. Would par the last hole to tie Rickie Fowler for second at one under.

Back to Kaymer. On 18 this would make it official. Finishes with another birdie and wins the U.S. Open at -9.

Kaymer wins by eight shots and becomes the first German to win the U.S. Open.

He also won the Players Championship on Mother's Day.
