2015 BMW International Open: Preview; Leaderboard
WITH just three weeks till the The Open Championship at St Andrews some of the European Tour’s leading lights will be honing their games this week at the 2015 BMW International Open at the Golf Club Munchen Eichenried in Munich.
After this there is the French Open next week followed by the Scottish Open at Gullane Golf Club before its down the road to the home of golf for the big one from July 16 to 19.
Henrik Stenson is the highest ranked player in a field that includes some of his recent fellow US Open aspirants in Shane Lowry (finished 9th at Chambers Bay), Joost Luiten, Tommy Fleetwood and Martin Kaymer (Pictured).
Kaymer is back home and is without the added burden he had last year when he had just won the US Open. This year he missed the cut – so that particular bit of pressure is definitely absent.
“Every year is very different,” the two-time major winner said. “Last year was a very tough one, I had just won the U.S. Open, and then you come here, and then you don’t really have time to celebrate or let it really sink in, because this week is another highlight for you if you play in your own country. Obviously this year, I have not done well recently in America, so it’s time that I perform as good as I can again.”
Aussies playing this week are Scott Hend, Richard Green, Wade Ormsby, Andrew Dodt and Jason Scrivener.
Live Fox Sports coverage begins Thursday 6.30pm – 8.30pm; 10.30pm – 12.30am
