MUNICH (AP) ― Ernie Els of South Africa won the BMW International Open by one shot Sunday for his 28th European Tour title.
He closed with a third straight 3-under 69 to finish at 18-under 270 on the Eichenried Golf Club course. Els was in front after the first and second rounds and entered the last day as part of a three-way lead.
Thomas Bjorn of Denmark shot a 69 and finished a stroke back. Alexander Levy of France had a 71 and was another stroke off the pace for his best result.
Els is a two-time winner at both the U.S. Open and British Open.
