Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida - Martin Kaymer of Germany is the latest European star to join the US PGA Tour.

Kaymer has been eligible to become a US tour member since he won the US PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in 2010.

According to the tour, five international players will be members next year. In addition to Kaymer, the others are Peter Hanson of Sweden, Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium, Ryo Ishikawa of Japan and David Lynn of England, the runner-up at this year's US PGA Championship.

Kaymer, who holed the clinching putt for Europe in the Ryder Cup, will be considered a tour rookie, even though his 10 career wins include a major and World Golf Championship.

His decision means 28 of the top 30 players in the world ranking will be US tour members.
