-  American to make debut in Munich

- The world’s number 14 is aiming for his third BMW title

- Tickets available at www.bmw-golfsport.com/tickets

 
Billy Horschel (USA), currently 14th in the world rankings, will compete at the BMW International Open (22nd to 26th June 2022, Golfclub München Eichenried) for the first time. The 2014 FedExCup winner won the PGA TOUR Playoff Event BMW Championship in 2014 and the flagship event of the DP World Tour, the BMW PGA Championship in 2021. Victory in Munich would see the 35-year-old complete his collection of coveted BMW titles, and make history in the process.



“I can hardly wait to tee off at the BMW International Open for the first time as I have only heard good things about this tournament. The BMW Championship on the PGA TOUR and the BMW PGA Championship in London are excellent tournaments which I have been fortunate enough to win already. I am sure that BMW will also put on a fantastic event in Munich, and am really looking forward to it,” said Horschel.



Alongside the American, Rory McIlroy (NIR) is currently the only other player to have won both the BMW Championship (2012) and the BMW PGA Championship (2014), and thereby two of the three current BMW tournaments in men’s golf. Victory in Munich would see Horschel achieve the historic ‘triple’. Currently, the only name to be engraved on three BMW trophies is Miguel Ángel Jiménez. The legendary Spaniard won the BMW PGA Championship in 2008, and four years before that, the BMW International Open and the BMW Asian Open, which was held for the last time in 2008.



However, the American will be taking on a top-class field at Germany’s tournament steeped in tradition, including Major champions Martin Kaymer (GER), Sergio García (ESP) and Louis Oosthuizen (RSA). The Ryder Cup players Bernd Wiesberger (AUT) and Rafa Cabrera Bello (ESP), reigning ‘DP World Tour Rookie of the Year’ Matti Schmid (GER), and two other top German players in the form of Max Kieffer and Marcel Siem will also be teeing off.



Viktor Hovland will not be able to defend his title. “While I enjoyed playing the 2021 BMW International Open and am very proud to be the Champion in such a quality field, I will not be defending my title this summer. The 2022 summer calendar is filled with many great events including the BMW International Open,” said the Norwegian.



“I have some goals I am pursuing this year, and I have planned my calendar to give me the right amount of rest and competition in order to perform at my best. Unfortunately, that schedule does not include defending in Munich. I will definitely return to Munich and the BMW International Open in the future.”



Day and tournament tickets, as well as VIP tickets for the Fairway Club, are available to buy online at www.bmw-golfsport.com/tickets. There is free admission to the Pro-Am on Wednesday 22nd June.


However, spectators need to order free, named tickets from the ticket shop. Information on concessions is also available from the ticket shop. Tickets can be returned up to three days before the event, and Fairway Club tickets up to 14 days before the event for a full refund.

 

 

BMW would like to thank main partners DP World, Emirates, Hilton, NTT Data, Rolex, Slync.io, and Zoom, corporate partners Antenne Bayern and Goodyear, as well as all supplier partners for their support and collaboration.
