Andres Romero held his nerve down the stretch to claim his first European Tour title in ten years at the BMW International Open last June.

The final round at Golfclub München Eichenried came down to a four-way battle between Romero, Masters Tournament champion Sergio Garcia, Richard Bland and Thomas Detry on a day of high drama in Bavaria.

Tournament invite Romero produced a closing birdie to sign for a 65 and set the target at 17 under and with the final pairing of Bland and Garcia both carding late bogeys, the Argentinian won his first European Tour title since the Deutsche Bank Players' Championship of Europe in 2007.

Romero had not made a regular European Tour appearance since the 2012 BMW Masters and his last top ten came at the BMW PGA Championship in 2008.

"I'm really happy, after ten years winning on the European Tour, especially here in Germany. I'm really, really happy," he said.

"The whole round was very good. I was focused all day. I didn't make any bogeys, that is a rare thing for my type of game. The last few holes I noticed I made seven birdies but the whole round was excellent.

"I was nervous when I got to the 18th green but finally when I was thinking with two putts I could win the tournament, I was really nervous. But hopefully I was going to do a two-putt and now I have my trophy and enjoy this moment."
