The German's miraculous recovery shot at the BMW International Open was voted June's shot of the month.

He may have missed the cut at his home Open but Martin Kaymer did pick up some silverware thanks to his week at the BMW International Open. The 30 year old's recovery shot on 18th hole of the opening day has been voted as the European Tour Shot of the Month for June by MyEuropeanTour fans.

Up against competition from Jonas Blixt, Gary Stal, Martin Ovesen and Rafael Cabrera-Bello, Kaymer's shot received 38% of the votes.

Kaymer arrived at the par five 18th hole one over par for his day when he second shot ended up short of the green on the edge of a water hazard. Seeing that his ball was playable, the former World Number One waded into the hazard and hit an incredible shot to around eight feet. He then, of course, finished it off with a putt and made birdie.
