Berlin – Germany’s top golfer Martin Kaymer has started a fundraiser in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and has already committed 50,000 euros as start-up capital.

The fundraising campaign launched by the two-time major winner together with his foundation is intended to support specific institutions and organizations in Germany, Italy and South Africa. Among other things, Kaymer would like to make the collected money available for the Heinsberg region, which was particularly affected by the corona crisis, and for the hospital in his hometown Mettmann.
