An enjoyable cycle ride through the English Garden in glorious weather, on BMW Bikes from the latest BMW Lifestyle Collection, and a team golf competition at the Seehaus: The opening of the BMW International Open 2019 (GC München Eichenried, 19th to 23rd June) was a star-studded affair, held in good spirits on Tuesday evening. Golf stars Martin Kaymer, Sergio García, Matt Wallace and Thorbjørn Olesen were joined by BMW M Brand Ambassador Lena Gercke, actor Jan Josef Liefers, Olympic luge champion Felix Loch, and BMW works driver Bruno Spengler, who gave the “Tee-Off Night” the glamour it deserved.
The bicycle and rickshaw tour took the group from the official player hotel, the Hilton Munich Park, through the English Garden, a famous Munich landmark and one of the largest parks in the world. The stars were in high spirits by the time they arrived at the Seehaus, where they were given a warm welcome by Pro-Am guests at the “Tee-Off Night”, and reached for their golf clubs.
The competition was played in teams of two. While each pro had to play an approach shot from the specially-erected bunker, the job of putting was left to their celebrity partner. The pairing of Johannes Lochner and Martin Kaymer came out on top, needing just two shots.
