Former world number one Kaymer finished the day with a blemish-free card, hitting birdies at the third, ninth, 11th, 13th, 15th and 16th holes. It was the lowest 54-hole score of the German’s career.

Australia’s Adam Scott finished two shots back from Kaymer after carding a second successive 66, while Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama produced the round of the day, an eight-under-par 64, which lifted him up 22 places into a tie for third.


Matsuyama also fired a bogey-free round – which included eight birdies – to sit alongside Jordan Spieth, who closed with a 69, and Patrick Cantlay (68).

England’s Justin Rose was unable to follow up his second-round score of 63, just two off the course record, which had lifted him to within three of the leaders as he posted a 71 to tie for 10th with Rickie Fowler and Merritt.

Tiger Woods moved up eight places on the leaderboard after a two-under-par 70, which followed scores of 70 and 72 in rounds one and two.

Luke Donald made one bogey and eight birdies for a round of 65, which saw him leap 50 places into a tie for 15th place alongside fellow Englishman Danny Willett.
