With the spotlight on Martin Kaymer on Sunday, the 29-year-old German stood tall. Kaymer shot a one-under 69, capping off a dominant performance with one of the final round's low scores to win the U.S. Open.
He was not the only champion in the spotlight. Kaymer's caddie, Craig Connelly, got considerable face time on NBC's coverage. Sporting a full beard and a bucket hat, Connelly became a hotbed for content on social media as a doppelganger. His lookalike: Zach Galifianakis.

Galifianakis may have been the most frequent comparison, but he was not the only individual Connelly was matched with as a doppelganger.

Martin Kaymer and caddie Cheech Marin are doing excellent work at the US Open.
