The 35th BMW International Open at the Munich Eichenried Golf Club was as per tradition opened this Wednesday with the Pro-Am tournament. This year, numerous celebrities again took part alongside golf pros.

In addition to the former football stars Gareth Bale, Tim Borowski, and Martin Harnik, Stefan Kretzschmar (handball legend), Ralph Hasenhüttl (football coach), and Martin Borgmeier (long drive world champion), Tobias Arlt (record Olympic champion in luge), Johannes Lochner (bobsleigh world champion), the former tennis pro Philipp Kohlschreiber, the actors Hans Sigl and Jan-Josef Liefers, as well as other stars teed off in the Bavarian capital.

Despite the damp conditions in Munich, the athletes got an early sense of the special atmosphere ahead of the coming days.

I am sure we will have another great week here like BMW always does.”

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. 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 have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies.
