INTERESTING FACTS
The BMW International Open has a reputation for being one of the lowest scoring events on The European Tour International Schedule. The average winning score is 19 under par. To underline that fact, the halfway cut in 1992 and 1997 was five under par – which equals the lowest in European Tour history. The 2001 tournament witnessed more records. Champion John Daly produced the lowest 36 hole total to par at 17 under and lowest 72 holes in Tour history in relation to par – 27 under, tying the mark of Jerry Andersen at the 1984 Ebel European Masters. Runner-up Padraig Harrington also wrote himself into the record books equalling the lowest 36 holes (for rounds two and three) and the lowest 54 holes under par – 22 under, first made by Vicente Fernandez at the 1975 Benson and Hedges Festival.
