Munich. The BMW International Open kicked off with impressive performances on the course and Bavarian flair around the tournament site. The 15,500 spectators who flocked to Golfclub München Eichenried particularly enjoyed a dazzling opening round of 67 (-5) from Germany’s top golfer, Martin Kaymer, who played his way into an excellent position going into round two.

 It is eleven years since Kaymer triumphed in Munich to become the first, and to this day only, German to win the BMW International Open. On Thursday, the two-time major winner remained bogey-free to set himself up nicely for an assault on title number two at Germany’s most iconic tournament. The 34-year-old underlined the impressive form he has shown recently with a controlled and virtually flawless performance.

 “It was great fun with the crowds. There were a lot of people out there, even in the morning – and a lot of kids, which is good to see. I made very few mistakes and putted well. Unfortunately, I did not put myself in good positions on the third, fourth and fifth, which are actually birdie holes. I could have picked up another shot or two there. There is still room for improvement, but I am very happy,” said Kaymer. “Compliments to Golfclub München Eichenried, the greens are perfect – the kind of greens a tournament like the BMW International Open deserves.”

When the afternoon rounds were suspended due to a thunderstorm warning, Kaymer was tied for second place with England’s Oliver Wilson, one shot off the lead, which was held by Italian Andrea Pavan (66, -6).

Defending champion Matt Wallace (ENG, -3), Sergio García (ESP, +1) and Marcel Siem (GER, +1) were also among the players who were able to finish their rounds in the morning.

Many of the 15,500 spectators – the most ever recorded on a Thursday in the 31-year history of the tournament – had come dressed in Lederhosen or Dirndls. “Bavarian Day” served up a feast of Bavarian hospitality, including traditional oompah music and snacks in the tournament’s own beer garden, as well as world-class golf.

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/.
