At the end of the 2015 BMW International Open in Munich it was Spain’s Pablo Larrazabal who claimed a second victory in four years.

No sooner had Michael Hoey signed his scorecard of a BMW International Open third round 71 when he was confronted by two young German women seeking a photograph with the five-time Tour winner.
