Pablo Larrazábal wins the BMW International Open at Golfclub München Eichenried, in Germany.
Pablo had a bogey free final round of -6 under par 66, to win the BMW International Open title with a -17 under par total, a one shot victory.
Pablo said he was worn out after his great effort, the victory was due to some great putting;
“I’m very tired.”
“I knew that I was in a good position, and I knew that I had to start very fast. I had to start with a few birdies in the first few holes, and I started very well.”
“I think I was five under for the front nine, hitting the ball great, as good as I’ve hit it all year, and my putting was awesome. I made a lot of great putts.
“Coming in, it was tough. You have a lot of holes with a lot of trouble.
Something else for Pablo to celebrate, he is getting married to his partner Gala Alten in August, it will be a dream come true;
“In two months I will be a married man.”
“This is awesome; being with her again around Munich and around this beautiful golf course, it gave us a lot of great memories and being married to her is a dream come true.”
In second place was Henrik Stenson, at -16 under par for the tournament, a -7 under par 65 today proved that he had recovered from the tough week at the US Open. Who has ever heard of removing stones from the bunker, in a Major Championship, really.
Henrik also putted very well on these perfect greens, carding an Eagle on the par five 11th, and nearly repeated it on 18;
“I hit some great shots and took full advantage of those two holes and thought if I could post a low number in the clubhouse, see what happened.”
“I came out there, hit some nice shots and took advantage with a good putter. There is not much to be disappointed in today.”
“I had a long range chance on 17 that looked good and an eagle chance on the last, but it was a tricky line and didn’t get the read right.”
Chris Paisley shot a -1 under par 71 in the final pairing to take third place on -15 under, his first European Tour top ten finish, while English compatriot, and overnight leader James Morrison sadly signed for a last round +5 over par 77, which sent him crashing down the leaderboard.
“Hope everyone enjoyed watching as much as I enjoyed playing! Happy your bets came in and delighted to finish 3rd! Thank you all so much!”
