BMW International Open Our Picks

Sergio Garcia is a two-time runner-up at this week’s venue and can follow up his top 20 at Torrey Pines by finally getting it done here. Back him to win at +1200 with bet365.

Louis Oosthuizen is in superb form and has a history of playing well after a near-miss in a major. He can beat Viktor Hovland over 72 holes at +100 with bet365.

Ross Fisher has five top 20s in his last six starts at this week’s track. The Englishman can add another at +335 with DraftKings Sportsbook.

BMW International Preview

For the second time this month, the European Tour heads to Germany.

Marcus Armitage was the surprise winner of the Porsche European Open in Hamburg three weeks ago although he rests up this week having contested the US Open.

Talking of Torrey Pines, the field here is boosted by a trio of star names jetting in from California.

US Open runner-up Louis Oosthuizen makes the long journey east, as do Sergio Garcia and Viktor Hovland. The latter had to pull out at Torrey with an eye problem but looks okay to peg it up this week.

It would be easy to dismiss Oosthuizen due to the lengthy travel and being under the gun all week in a major but he won the Malaysian Open seven days after losing a play-off to Bubba Watson in the 2012 Masters so the South African is made of strong stuff. More on that later.

Since 2011 this event has alternated between this week’s venue, Golfclub Munchen Eichenried, and Golf Club Larchenhof near Cologne.

The pandemic meant it was canceled in 2020 so it’s back to Munich to keep the pattern of this course staging the tournament in odd-numbered years.

Golfclub Munchen Eichenried is a stock par 72 measuring 7,284 yards. Opened in 1989, the Kurt Rossknecht design is flat and tree-lined.

The tournament used to be won with extremely low numbers but Andrea Pavan took the title with 15-under in 2019 so it’s become more of a test.

The layout underwent alterations ahead of that edition but strong past course form is still a good guide.

Sergio can Shine

There doesn’t seem anything too amazing about Sergio Garcia’s tied 19th in last week’s US Open but, incredibly, it was his first top 20 in a major since he finally made the breakthrough and won the 2017 Masters.

It feels like a bridge has been crossed and the Spaniard will hopefully have a spring in his step when he tees it up in Germany this week.

He rounded off his effort on American’s west coast with a 68 and that made it back-to-back top 20s following another at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Sergio certainly punches his weight in regular European Tour events and he’s twice been a runner-up at this venue after near misses in both 2011 and 2017.

Between those second places he was seventh and Garcia also occupied that same spot on his course debut.

Sergio struck his irons well last week (7th for Strokes Gained: Approach) and recorded his best-putting numbers of 2021 so his game is definitely trending in the right direction.

As a renowned international traveller, he’ll be able to shake off any jet-lag and, perhaps inspired a little by countryman Jon Rahm, the 16-time European Tour winner can land the victory at +1200.

Oosthuizen can Outscore Hovland

The two betting favorites are pitted against each other in a match bet at bet365 although the odds suggest -120 Hovland will come out on top.

Hmmm. I’m not so sure.

As stated, Oosthuizen won the week after his Masters heartbreak in 2012 and he’s played strongly after being edged out in other major tournaments.

The 2010 Open winner is in superb form after finishing runner-up in both the US Open and PGA and between those he was tied 18th at Memorial.

Hovland, by contrast, has gone off the boil a little. Although it may be fair to disregard his poor second round display at Torrey Pines as he had to withdraw during it after getting sand in his eye, let’s recall that he’d opened with a modest 74 when his vision was just fine.

Before that he’d had to settle for tied 47th at Memorial and tied 30th at Kiawah Island so his form just isn’t on a par with Oosthuizen’s right now.

In addition, Oosthuizen has played this course plenty of times even though it was quite a while ago. True, there were plenty of missed cuts but he looked to be getting more at ease with it on his most recent visit in 2009 when opening with a trio of 69s.

Hovland is making his debut and although he’s a fast learner, it’s current form deciding this one and Oosthuizen has a clear edge.

His excellent temperament suggests he can shake off last week’s disappointment so I’ll back Oosthuizen to score lowest over 72 holes at +100 (bet365).

Fisher can Flourish Again

Ross Fisher will be delighted the tournament is heading back to Golfclub Munchen Eichenried.

The Englishman is a course horse and looks ideal betting material for a top 20 bet at +335 with DraftKings Sportsbook.

Fisher would have landed such a bet in five of his previous six starts at the course after a brilliant run of results which include a second and a ninth.

His form was rather spotty despite making five cuts out of seven between January and May but he found another gear with a tied eighth in the Made in HimmerLand in Denmark two starts ago.

He ranked fifth in both Strokes Gained: Tee To Green and SG: Approach in that event so was striking the ball nicely.

He was also in the top 10 for SG: Approach at the British Masters in the start before that so a decent putting week must give him every chance of another top 20 here.
