European Tour: BMW International Open – Henrik Stenson


Powered by National Club Golfer


Just a week after withdrawing from Oakmont through injury Stenson came through 36 holes for a three-shot win in Germany.

He led by one after a bogey-freee 67 in the morning before dropping shots at four of the first 10 holes in the afternoon. But birdies at 13 and 15, both par 5s, and 17, where he drove the green, to edge clear of Darren Fichardt and Thorbjørn Olesen who will rue three straight bogeys from the 8th.

Stenson has now won this tournament twice and he was second the past two years. It looks likely that he will move up to fifth in the world. He now has 10 wins on the European Tour and this ended a drought that goes back to Dubai at the end of 2014.

What Stenson said: “I’m delighted; I came close here the last two years so it feels pretty special to get my hands on the trophy again. It was hairy all the way; it was a tough one. I had to dig deep to come back. I didn’t play well on the front nine; made a couple of mistakes; got caught out by the wind a few times and missed one or two putts I should have made as well.

“I felt like I was starting to make a bit of a mess of it and then I came back and made the birdies on the par 5s. I made some good putts closing out. I really feel like I played well in 2015 and I just couldn’t get my hands on a trophy. It was a bit hard at times but you’ve just got to keep on trying and put yourself in position. I did that once again and this time I managed to go all the way.”
