Two-time Major Champion Martin Kaymer will tee it up alongside Masters Champion Sergio Garcia and Race to Dubai winner Tommy Fleetwood at the BMW International Open from June 21-24.

One of Kaymer’s most emotional and exciting victories came at the 20th anniversary of the tournament in 2008, when he became the youngest and only German winner of the iconic tournament.

“The BMW International Open is very close to my heart,” said Kaymer. “When I won in 2008, it was my second win on the European Tour and that was a very emotional victory for me, and it was rather special to be the first German to win the tournament.

“The atmosphere is always fantastic and very relaxed. I am looking forward to playing at the tournament’s 30th birthday. Thank you, BMW, for three decades of supporting golf in Germany,”

Now a three-time Ryder Cup winner, Kaymer came through a play-off against Anders Hansen to win the 20th anniversary tournament in Munich, having endured a rollercoaster ride of a final round. 

German golf fans will be able to see him in action at the 30th BMW International Open when the 32 year old tees it up at Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof next year.

“I will do everything I can to put on a show for my home fans and to repeat my success from 2008,” Kaymer said.

“We are proud that Martin Kaymer made tournament history in becoming the first German winner at the 20th anniversary event and we are delighted that he will be joining us again for the 30th BMW International Open,” said Peter van Binsbergen, Head of Sales and Marketing BMW Germany, and Tournament President of the BMW International Open.

“The BMW International Open is unique, as it is the only tournament on the European Tour that has taken place with the same title and same organiser, in BMW, continuously for three decades.”
