Munich. In a story travelling roughly 30 years, a BMW
International Open has usually constructed one German winner: Martin
Kaymer triumphed in 2008, when a contest distinguished its
20th anniversary during Golfclub München-Eichenried. This
year, a 32-year-old will lapse to a stage of that success, as
he bids to explain a second title. The three-time Ryder Cup winner
will be assimilated during a BMW International Open (21st to
25th June) by a remaining 6 German pros personification their
golf on a European Tour this season.

“I am already looking brazen to a BMW International Open in
Munich,” pronounced Kaymer. “It is quite good for me to play in front
of a home fans in my local Germany. Furthermore, a feat during the
2008 BMW International Open will always sojourn a really special title
for me – that is because we am always so gratified to lapse to this
illusory tournament.”

Kaymer degraded Denmark’s Anders Hansen in a play-off in 2008,
following a genuine rollercoaster float of a final round. However, he held
his haughtiness during a essential impulse to overcome Hansen on a initial extra
hole, in front of a sea of black, red and bullion flags. Kaymer was just

during a BMW International Open was 29th place in 2015. The
contest is a genuine home eventuality for BMW “Friends of a Brand” Florian
Fritsch and Bernd Ritthammer: Fritsch was innate in Munich, while
Ritthammer, whose 16th place done him a best-placed
German during final year’s BMW International Open, lives in a Bavarian capital.

Marcel Siem also has roots in Eichenried. His mom was responsible
for catering during a bar from 1988 onwards, while Siem was a club’s
girl champion on dual occasions. This is not a usually reason that
feat during a BMW International Open would meant so most to the
36-year-old. He came torturously tighten to winning a pretension in 2012,
when he finished tied in sixth place, only dual shots behind Danny
Willett (ENG).

Alexander Knappe and Sebastian Heisele are in their initial deteriorate on
a European Tour. Two wins and third place altogether were sufficient to
see Knappe promoted from a Challenge Tour final year. Heisele secured
his Tour label during Qualifying School.

Kaymer, leader of a 2010 PGA Championship and a 2014 U.S. Open,
will be assimilated by another vital winner, in a form of Henrik Stenson,
who reliable his assemblage behind in December. The Swede is the
reigning Open champion and fortifying champion during a BMW International
Open – a contest he has won twice already (2006, 2016). The two
vital winners will accept unrelenting antithesis from a clever Spanish
