There is perhaps more focus on the 2022 BMW International Open than in previous years because of the fact that 10 LIV Golf Invitational Series players are opting to tee it up in Munich. 

That is a cause of some controversy, with uncertainty surrounding the DP World Tour’s stance on the Saudi-backed Series, with Golf Monthly understanding that the organisation and the PGA Tour are in advanced negotiations to combat its threat.

While we await confirmation of its position, the playes are are allowed to participate in this week’s tournament at Golfclub München Eichenried. As a result, Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer, Louis Oosthuizen, Pablo Larrazabal, Bernd Wiesberger, Laurie Canter and Adrian Otaegui are among the LIV Golf players taking part this week.

Even with their eligibility, there is some controversy, with the LIV Golf rebels grouped together for the opening two rounds, which could be interpreted as a sign that they are not entirely welcome. Nevertheless, the field is undoubtedly stronger than it would have been because of their involvement. The players will be aiming to emulate 2021 champion Viktor Hovland. The Norwegian closed with three birdies to clinch his first European Tour title in last year’s event, although he isn’t defending his title.

Players will be faced with a par 72, 7,284-yard parkland course set over150 acres. The course is predominantly flat and long, with 90 bunkers, abundant trees, streams and ponds throughout and two half-island greens.

A purse of €2m is on offer this week, an increase of €500,000 on the previous year. Of that, the winner will earn €330,330. Below is the full breakdown of the prize money and field.
