Matt Wallace will get his BMW International Open title defence under way with two of his closest challengers from 12 months ago at Golfclub München Eichenried.

The Englishman spent much of the final day looking up the leaderboard at Thorbjørn Olesen, who signed for a record breaking 61 at Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof to open up a three shot lead before the final group had even teed off.

However, five birdies in seven holes from the turn saw Wallace move one clear of the Dane at ten under par, with the final group pairing of home favourite Martin Kaymer and Finn Mikko Korhonen unable to catch him.

Wallace begins at the tenth hole at 08.40 alongside two time Major champion Kaymer and Dane Olesen, who was part of the victorious 2018 Ryder Cup team, for a formidable three-ball.

Sergio Garcia is another Major Championship winner and the 2017 Masters Champion starts ten minutes earlier on the back nine, beginning his first two rounds with South African Brandon Stone and England's Andy Sullivan.

Former World Number One and 24 time European Tour winner Lee Westwood gets under way at 13.30 with home favourite Maximilian Kieffer and Made in Denmark presented by FREJA champion Bernd Wiesberger.

Thomas Bjørn, who guided Team Europe to victory at Le Golf National last year, has American Kurt Kitayama and South Africa's Erik van Rooyen for company in the first two rounds, beginning at 13.00.

There is a trio of Ryder Cup players starting at 13.40, with Sweden's Alex Noren, part of the 2018 team, playing alongside 2016 stars Rafa Cabrera Bello and Matthew Fitzpatrick.

Venezuela's Jhonattan Vegas is making a rare European Tour appearance in Munich and begins at 13.10 alongside Argentina's Andres Romero and Thai Thongchai Jaidee.

Korhonen is an early starter, beginning at 08.50 with Belgium's Thomas Detry and Englishman Matthew Southgate.
