PABLO LARRAZABAL

Pablo Larrazabal edged out Henrik Stenson in Munich to lift the BMW International Open trophy for a second time and enhance his reputation as ‘a giant killer’.


The 32-year-old started his final round six shots adrift of James Morrison but was right up there early on after five birdies on the front nine helped him out in 31.

A further birdie at the 16th followed for the Spaniard and he grinded out pars in his final two holes to stay one clear of Swede Stenson, who had rocketed up the leaderboard himself on Sunday with a seven-under-par 65, the joint best round of the day.
"It suits my eye from the tee, on second shots and on the greens" - Pablo Larrazabal

“Every title is very special, but this place, from the first time I arrived at this golf course, it's something that suits my eye,” said Pablo Larrazabal, whose victory was his fourth on the European Tour. “It suits my eye from the tee, on second shots and on the greens.”

Larrazabal, who has moved up to No.69 in the world rankings as a result, also spoke about a growing reputation he has after seeing of numerous high-profile players in his European Tour successes.

“There was an article on the Golf Channel, I think they called me the ‘giant killer’,” he explained. “In France, Monty was runner‑up, four years ago here it was Sergio, runner‑up in Abu Dhabi was Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson and this time it was Henrik Stenson. So it cannot be a lot better!”

Meanwhile, Stenson said he couldn’t be disappointed with his showing, especially after arriving in Munich so soon after playing four tough days at the US Open at Chambers Bay.

“I came out there, hit some nice shots and took advantage with a good putter,” said Stenson. “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.”
