+++ Monster drives at the 18th green +++ Spectators celebrate “Launch Control – A Longdrive Competition presented by BMW & Martin Borgmeier” +++ Successful premiere at the 35th BMW International Open +++


Munich.
The first round of the 35th BMW International Open ended with a real bang. Right after the last putt, the 18th green in front of the grandstand transformed into a Longdrive arena. At “Launch Control – A Longdrive Competition presented by BMW & Martin Borgmeier”, for the first time as part of a DP World Tour event, six top-class Longdrive athletes, both men and women, competed against each other in an adrenaline-charged show match.

German Longdrive World Champion Martin Borgmeier prevailed among the men against Ryan “The Canadian Lumberjack” Gregnol (CAN) and Sam Judah (USA). Borgmeier won the final against Gregnol with a drive of 424 metres, however the Canadian had shown the longest hit of the day in the preliminary round with 427 metres.

Among the women, Cassandra Meyer (USA) (322 metres) defeated her compatriot Gabi Powel and the local favourite and European Amateur Long Drive Champion Sonya Knebel. The real winners however were the enthusiastic fans who enjoyed and celebrated a different kind of golf experience and a spectacular competition.

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. Further information are available at www.bmw.de/wltp and at www.dat.de/co2/.
