LARRAZÁBAL PIPS STENSON IN MUNICH

Flawless final round 66 enough to claim second BMW International Open title

Spain’s Pablo Larrazábal raced to the turn in 31 to place himself on a congested leaderboard, and as the challengers one by one faded away his sixth birdie of the day from 15 feet on the 16th proved decisive in edging out clubhouse leader Stenson.

The World Number Seven Stenson had put himself in contention with a round of 65 that featured five birdies and an eagle on the long 11th.

England’s Chris Paisley shot a one under par 71 in the final pairing to take third on 15 under, boosting his chances of retaining his card for next season in the process, but overnight leader James Morrison finished outside the top ten after a closing 77.

“I’m very tired,” said Larrazábal after claiming a fourth European Tour title, having also won his second at this venue in 2011.

“I knew that I was in a good position, and I knew that I had to start very fast. I had to start with a few birdies in the first few holes, and I started very well. 

“I think I was five under for the front nine, hitting the ball great - as good as I’ve hit it all year, and my putting was awesome. I made a lot of great putts.

“Coming in, it was tough. You have a lot of holes with a lot of trouble. 

Larrazábal is getting married to partner Gala Alten in August and admitted he was in a good place at the moment.

“In two months I will be a married man,” he added.

“This is awesome; being with her again around Munich and around this beautiful golf course, it gave us a lot of great memories and being married to her is a dream come true.” 

Stenson, who arrived here on the back of a gruelling week at the US Open, was pleased to have produced some of his best golf to give himself a chance.

“I came out there, hit some nice shots and took advantage with a good putter. There is not much to be disappointed in today. I had a long range chance on 17 that looked good and an eagle chance on the last, but it was a tricky line and didn’t get the read right.”
