MUNICH — Reigning British Open champion, Ernie Els led from start to finish to capture the BMW International Open in Munich on Sunday.

Els, 43 became the oldest-ever winner of the event posting a last round three under par 69 to win by a shot on 18-under par.

Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn, winner of the event 13 years ago, was left to count the costs of a 14th hole double bogey in signing for a score of 69 for an 18-under par total.
