Kaymer is world's top finisher, says Harrington

Martin Kaymer is now the top finisher in golf, according to Padraig Harrington.

The German overtook Tiger Woods to claim second spot in the most recent world rankings, and Harrington says the 26-year-old is now also the coolest head in the field when he's leading.

Harrington's disqualification from the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship afforded him the perfect opportunity to get out of his golf clothing and into the commentary box for a good look at Kaymer, who won the event by eight shots.

"He's probably the most formidable player in the world when he is leading," said Harrington.

"He seems to intimidate the rest of the field into believing that if he gets in front he is going to win."

Kaymer's Abu Dhabi success means fellow European Lee Westwood is now the only man in the world ranked above him. It's the first time since 1993 that two Europeans have occupied the top two spots in the rankings.

Nick Faldo and Bernhard Langer were the world's leading players when it last happened.
