Munich. Defending champion Henrik Stenson reflects on his victory in the 2016 BMW International Open and looks forward to the challenges ahead.

You won this event in Cologne in 2016. Is it nice to be back at the BMW International Open? What are your thoughts about this golf course?

Henrik Stenson: “My win in Cologne last year really gave my confidence a boost - and we all know what happened a couple of weeks later. It was really key to the success I had at Troon and in winning The Open Championship. It feels great to be back and thinking how important this win was last year for me. This golf course here hasn't changed a whole lot over the years, even though there have been some updates. It's a low-scoring course, so hopefully we’ll bring the birdie train with us this week.”

Did you bring driver or is 3-wood enough?

Stenson: “No, we always carry a driver. There are certainly a few driving holes around here and if you want to make enough birdies to get to 20-under, there are certainly a few holes where you've got to be aggressive and try to get as much length as possible.”

What are the signature holes for you? Which holes can be decisive for the tournament?

Stenson: “You've got to play well at the par fives. Both the 6th and 11th have got water in front of the green. These can be easy birdie chances if you hit two good shots, but you could really struggle for par or worse if you don't hit the greens. The 18th is another birdie or eagle chance, but the tee shot is crucial. You have to navigate the pond and still take a tight line off the tee to give yourself a shorter second shot.”

Last night you had a very special sightseeing tour in a Rolls-Royce. How did it feel driving through Munich in that car?

Stenson: “Certainly a few heads turned. Rolls-Royce is not the most common car on the streets anywhere in the world. It’s a smooth ride. Munich is a beautiful city in the summer. The temperatures are nice and there a lot of restaurants. We enjoy our week here and it's always good to be back.”

Were you the only player who brought his own club for the chipping competition against Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer at BMW Welt?

Stenson: “No. But I was the only one smart enough to bring a lob-wedge.”

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
