Strongest ever field for BMW International

The strongest field since the tournament was established in 1989 and the last chance for Europe's players to qualify for the Ryder Cup: the elite of the golf world are to play at the BMW International Open. The tournament will take place from 26th to 29th August 2004 at the Golf Club Munich North-Eichenried. It is one of the most prestigious events on the
European PGA Tour.

Retief Goosen (South Africa), Padraig Harrington (Ireland), Sergio Garcia (Spain), and Darren Clarke (Northern Ireland), four players from the top-ranked 15 in the world, will be playing in Munich, as well as all the Europeans among the world's Top 50. These include the defending champion Lee Westwood and the Dane Thomas Björn, who won the tournament in 2000 and 2002. Alex Cejka, the top German player who was placed second at the BMW International Open last year, is also among the broader list of favourites.
The American star John Daly will be teeing off in Munich as well. He was the one who cashed in the winner's check in 2001.

A total of 1.8 million euros in prize money is awarded at the tournament.
The winner of this year's tournament alone will receive 300,000 euros. An additional incentive is on offer: the first player with a hole-in-one on the 17th hole will receive a BMW Cabrio 645Ci.
