  • Germany’s biggest up-and-coming golf star Matti Schmid is a BMW “Friend of the Brand”.
  • The 24-year-old was presented the DP World Tour “Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year Award” last week.
  • Schmid is now driving sustainably, in a BMW X3 xDrive30e* with plug-in hybrid drive.

Matti Schmid was presented with his new BM W X3 xDrive30e* at BMW Welt today. For the shooting star, who won the silver medal for best amateur at this year’s Open Championship, this marks the beginning of a partnership with BMW.

“We extend a warm welcome to Matti Schmid as he joins the BMW Golfsport family and are really looking forward to working together,” said Christian Masanz, Head of Sports Marketing BMW Germany. “Matti has proven his huge potential time and again. He is as ambitious as he is likeable, and BMW is delighted and confident to be partnering with him as he advances his sporting career.”

Matti Schmid said: “I have an eventful, important and successful year behind me. But that was just the beginning, I still have a lot of goals that I want to achieve. I’m really looking forward to having BMW at my side as I start working towards them – and I’m delighted to be driving a BMW X3. BMW is one of the most renowned partners in international golf, I am proud of this collaboration.”

This season saw the 24-year-old achieve important milestones in his golfing career that is in its early days. At the BMW International Open in Munich, he finished in a superb tied 14th place, making him the highest ranked amateur. And Schmid was the best amateur in the field once again at the Open at Royal St George’s Golf Club, finishing tied with Ryder Cup players Lee Westwood (ENG) and Bernd Wiesberger (AUT), among other players.

Schmid became a pro right after winning the Silver Medal. In just seven starts on the European Tour he managed to earn the right to play in the 2021/22 season of the series currently in progress, which has since been renamed DP World Tour. Schmid only just missed out on getting his first win on the European Tour in September, when he finished three shots behind winner Kristoffer Broberg (SWE) to take second place at the Dutch Open.

In recognition of his outstanding achievements, Schmid was presented with the DP World Tour “Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year Award” last week. The award for best rookie of the season has only been won by one other German golfer: Martin Kaymer in 2007, who went on to become number one in the world rankings, two-time major winner and three-time Ryder Cup winner.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the following web site www.dat.de.
