Martin Kaymer is keen to build on the momentum he created at the end of last year having confirmed his intention to once again play in the Qatar Masters this season.

The German enjoyed a memorable finish to his 2012 campaign as he sunk the putt which ensured Europe would retain the Ryder Cup in extraordinary fashion at Medinah.

He then ended a year-long wait for an individual title as he clinched a two-shot victory at the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa at the start of December.

"I'm keen to get my 2013 season off to a good start so I'm excited about competing again at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. I feel like I've played better each time I've competed there," stated Kaymer who finished ninth in Doha last year.

"I'm playing well after a slow start to last season and it was great to finish the year with a trophy in South Africa.

"The excitement of the Ryder Cup was amazing. I may never experience a moment like that again. I'm still proud I was able to come through for my teammates."

Joining Kaymer in committing to the event in Qatar will be his Ryder Cup team-mates Sergio Garcia and Paul Lawrie, with the latter defending the title he won 12 months ago.

"I've always enjoyed playing the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, as I like the course at Doha Golf Club. I've played well there most times and it will be nice to compete there again after a pretty exciting season," added Garcia.
