29 European tour players have just gone head to head
Second tournament of BMW Indoor Invitational powered by TrackMan
29 European tour players have just gone head to head on TrackMan’s virtual Royal Portrush course. The field included former World Number One and two-time Major Champion Martin Kaymer, winner of the first tournament of the BMW Indoor Invitational Joost Luiten, Laurie Canter, Dean Burmester and Connor Syme.
The second of five tournaments, Royal Portrush proved as much of a challenge as the first week’s St Andrews Old Course – and provided just as many thrills!
After the front nine it looked very much like Laurie Canter would carry the day. However, the back nine saw Connor Syme managing to keep his cool and claw his way back to an impressive victory. Courtesy of BMW, Connor will receive $10,000 to benefit the Coronavirus charities of his choice. He has split the prize between FoodTrain, which supplies meals to the elderly in Dundee, Scotland, and Hospice of the Valleys, a charity close to his heart that provides palliative care.
“I am absolutely honored to have won and have the opportunity to hopefully change a few people’s lives”, says Connor Syme.
Next week’s tournament takes place on GC Münich’s Eichenried course, which has hosted the BMW International Open twenty times since the course’s inauguration in 1989. Eichenried’s abundance of trees, two half-island greens and nearly 90 bunkers require players to deliver a technically and tactically adept game of golf. It’s going to be exciting!
