Munich. Masterstroke in round two of the BMW International Open: Gaganjeet Bhullar hit an ace on the 17th hole on Friday. The six-iron earned the 31-year-old a dream prize: The BMW M8 Competition Coupé*, which will celebrate its world premiere in BMW Welt next week.

"This is my second hole in one in a professional golf tournament. Before starting this year, I discussed with my caddie one of my dreams. I said need to make at least one hole in one and choose the right one, I’m glad we made that commitment. It’s a great moment. BMWs are some of my favourite cars and I’d love to drive that car,” said the delighted world number 175 after receiving the key to his new wheels from Florian Baumeister, Head of Events, Exhibitions and Sport Marketing BMW Germany, and taking his place at the wheel of the luxury sports car.

This is the eighth time the Hole-in-One Award has been won in 31 years of the BMW International Open. The masterstroke was achieved in each of the four years that the tournament was held in Cologne: Andrew Marshall (ENG, 2012, BMW 640i Gran Coupé), James Heath (ENG, 2014, BMW i8), Richie Ramsay (SCO, 2016, BMW M760Li xDrive) and Aaron Rai (ENG, 2018, BMW i8 Roadster) were the lucky winners.

You have to go back a little further to find the last time anyone pulled off the dream shot in Munich: Back in 2010, Jean-François Lucquin (FRA) won a BMW 535i. His compatriot Raphaël Jacquelin had previously received the keys to a brand-new BMW Z8 in 2001. The first Hole-in-One car in the history of the tournament ever to be presented to a new owner was the BMW 325i Cabrio, which Jay Townsend took home in 1991.

The new BMW M8 Competition Coupé embodies the pinnacle of luxurious driving pleasure. It elegantly combines pure M genes with ultimate exclusivity – for sporty driving experiences on the roads and at the track. Its high-performance, M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine develops an outstanding 460 kW (625 hp). Together with many highly-developed drivetrain and chassis components, inspired by motorsport, this makes for an unforgettable driving experience.

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/.
