Fans at the BMW International Open are set to be spoiled with an all-star field in Munich.

Golfclub München Eichenried in the German capital will play host to the 35th edition of the prestigious tournament and welcome a host of home heroes.

Having undergone a successful operation on an Achilles injury he suffered in February, six-time Ryder Cup winner and Masters champion Bernhard Langer will make his final DP World Tour start.

The 66-year-old will bid farewell to the circuit in his native Bavaria, and he’ll be joined by fellow senior major champion Alex Cejka and LIV Golf’s Martin Kaymer.

The two-time major winner lifted this title in 2008 and remains the only German winner of the tournament.

It was founded in 1989 and for a period was the only European Tour event played in the country, until the Porsche European Open moved to Germany in 2015.

Viktor Hovland is the most notable winner in recent years, as the Norwegian triumphed in 2021, but Henrik Stenson and Ernie Els are among the major champs to have prevailed.

The bunkered Bet

Thomas Pieters 18/1

The LIV Golf convert finished runners-up on his most recent start on the DP World Tour. That was a home game at the Soudal Open but his exploits off the tee should be even stronger in Germany this week. Pieters was second in this event two years ago and is one of the class acts in this field.
