As well as possessing a great game, one of Kieffer’s biggest attributes is his mental strength – a fact the German demonstrated emphatically at the Open de España in April 2013. For nine play-off holes, the Tour newcomer more than held his own against the experienced Raphael Jacquelin before eventually yielding to the Frenchman after more than two hours of “extra time” and the longest play-off in European Tour history.
His personality, exceptional golfing talent and demeanour make him an ideal ambassador for the BMW Golfsport commitment.
