Pablo Larrazabal claimed his fourth European Tour victory and second BMW International Open title this week in Munich, seeing off a late challenge from world number seven Henrik Stenson and Englishman Chris Paisely. Larrazabal started the final day five shots back, but a fantastic final round of 66 saw him move up the leaderboard into the top spot. His bogey free final round was good enough to fight off a late charge from Henrik Stenson, who also put in great performance on Sunday. Stenson's 7-under-par final round was one better than that of Larrazabal, but a birdie at 16 gave the Spaniard the edge, and his second BMW International Open victory.

Chris Paisely finished third, after putting himself into contention with an impressive 66 on day three. However his final round 71 meant he finished just two shots shy of the eventual winner, but this was a great performance from Paisely, and one he will certainly be able to build upon in only his fifth year and 52nd event on the European Tour. Overnight leader James Morrison, who had started the day with a two shot lead, fell away with a final round of 77 to finish tied eleventh. 

Larrazabal has now recorded some brilliant wins over high profile players, nicknaming himself the 'giant killer', after defeating the likes of Colin MontgomeriePhil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia and now Henrik Stenson on his way to winning titles.
