Ratingen, the home of Marcel Siem, is even closer to Gut Lärchenhof than Mettmann. The man with the blond ponytail shares the trainer, Günter Kessler, with Kaymer, but as player types the two German European Tour pros stand by each other like Yin and Yang.

Transforming his feelings on the court into positive energy has always been the great challenge for Siem in his career. In 2012 he is doing quite well so far, as numerous top results prove.
