Golf-Abu Dhabi slump could have been due to complacency - Kaymer

Tuesday, 8:13 AM

By Matt Smith DUBAI, Jan 27 (Reuters) - Complacency may have been the reason twice major winner Martin Kaymer blew a 10-stroke lead in the final round of this month's Abu Dhabi Championship, the German said on Tuesday. The U.S. Open title holder seemed unbeatable in the desert two weeks ago until a startling collapse featuring six dropped strokes in eight holes let in unheralded Frenchman Gary Stal for a maiden European Tour victory. "When you lead by six shots overnight and start off birdie- birdie-par-birdie you almost feel like not much could go wrong," Kaymer told reporters ahead of the Dubai Desert Classic that starts on Thursday. "In golf that little bit of too much confidence can hurt, it's a very fine line." Kaymer, who also landed the U.S. PGA Championship crown in 2010, said his Middle East meltdown would make him an even tougher competitor in the future.

Tuesday, 5:20 AM

Clarke of Northern Ireland chips onto the 17th green during the third day of practice for the 96th PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in LouisvilleBy Matt Smith DUBAI (Reuters) - The captain of the European side that will defend the Ryder Cup against the United States in Minnesota in 2016 will be Darren Clarke or Miguel Angel Jimenez, two stalwarts of the team said on Tuesday. World number two Henrik Stenson and sixth-ranked Sergio Garcia both believe it will be a straight fight between the Northern Irishman and the Spaniard over who replaces 2014 skipper Paul McGinley. "Most likely we're going to see a race between Darren and Miguel," Stenson told reporters on Tuesday ahead of this week's Dubai Desert Classic. I don't have to put any thought into it, I just have to wait like everybody else until the result comes out." The captain used to be decided by the players but it is now down to a five-man panel that includes former skippers McGinley, Jose Maria Olazabal and Colin Montgomerie.

U.S. durable goods data signal weaker business spending

Tuesday, 8:34 AM

An employee uses a touch pad to enter information for a customer shopping for a refrigerator at a Sears store in Schaumburg, Illinois, near ChicagoA gauge of U.S. business investment plans fell for a fourth straight month in December, a potential sign that slowing global growth and falling crude oil prices were starting to weigh on the economy. "The drop in capex will weigh on growth, though stronger consumer spending should keep GDP from slowing too much," said Chris Low, chief economist at FTN Financial in New York. The Commerce Department said non-defense capital goods orders excluding aircraft, a closely watched proxy for business spending plans, fell 0.6 percent last month after a similar decline in November. Weak capital goods spending is likely to catch the attention of Federal Reserve officials, who started a two-day policy meeting on Tuesday.
