Golf pro Martin Kaymer got off to a strong start at the BMW International Open in Munich-Eichenried despite having problems with his left wrist. With 66 strokes on the par 72 course, the 37-year-old from Mettmann was tied for fourth place after the first round.
Surprisingly, Nicolai von Dellingshausen was even better, finishing third with 64 strokes. In the lead is China’s Li Haotong, who played ten under par and set the course record (62).
However, Maximilian Kieffer provided the highlight of the first day. The 31-year-old managed the first albatross of his career on lane eleven. Kieffer landed on the par 5 hole with the second shot from almost 193 meters away.
