FJ ambassador Pablo Larrazabal showed nerves of steel to win the BMW International Open on the fifth play-off hole to clinch his second European Tour title in Munich.
The 28 year old's victory came only 20 days after he lost at the sixth hole of sudden death in an Open Championship qualifier at Sunningdale. Now Larrazabal will be going to Sandwich after.
There was also sadness attached to Pablo’s victory, "Last week we lost my grandad, the captain of the family, and this is for him," he said.
Larrazabal finished on 16 under par total of 272, tying with his fellow countryman, both finishing with rounds of 68.
They first played the 18th twice more - and birdied it both times - and then the 12th and 17th, two par threes, could not separate them.
Larrazabal was much the further from the cup in two on their return to the 18th, but he was the one to get down in two for the €333,330 first prize.
Larrazabal will be back in the top 100 after starting the week 180th, and he has showed in the last few months that he is close to being back to his best.
The week also proved to be a successful one for other FJ players. With Luke Donald and Lee Westwood first and second and with US Open Champion Rory McIlroy moving to World Number three, it is the first time United Kingdom players have occupied the leading three positions since the Official World Golf Ranking began in 1986.
Pablo wore FJ ICON golf shoes and a StaSof glove on route to his second European Tout title.
