Martin Kaymer is getting another shot at the title of Champion Golfer of the Year.

The winner of the 2010 PGA Championship via a playoff against Bubba Watson and the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 will replace Kevin Na in the field for the 149th British Open next week at Royal St. George’s in England. Na, a five-time winner on the PGA Tour, withdrew due to international travel requirements.

“It was a tough decision but for my family and me it is best to skip The Open this year,” said Na in a release from the R&A. “I will be back next year, it is one of my favorite weeks and I would love to hold the Claret Jug one day.”

Cam Davis, who recently earned his first win on Tour at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, is the first reserve but is unable to travel, which opened the door for Kaymer. The next three reserves are Andy Sullivan, Antoine Rozner and Troy Merritt.
