"The usually inconsistent Dave Horsey might be worth a look this week. The Englishman is a former Munich champion and was second last time out."

The European Tour returns to its home continent for this week's BMW International Open in Munich.

Opened 29 years ago, Golfclub Munchen Eichenried will be hosting a Tour event for the 18th time.

Situated around 12 miles north-east of the city centre, this parkland venue has traditionally been a birdie-fest, although the course has been toughened up a little in recent years.

A number of golfers have flown in from Wisconsin, after contesting the US Open, including Erin Hills' contender Tommy Fleetwood.

However, will the Englishman be emotionally ready to contend again as early as this Thursday? Or will he just have to take a back seat on this occasion?

It is always difficult trying to judge a golfer's state of mind and physical shape, following a strong run in a major, and especially when there has been a long plane journey involved too.


Horses for Courses

Among those who have an excellent pedigree at this Munich location are Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia.

Former champion Stenson has enjoyed five top-10 finishes in his last seven visits, while Garcia was second here five years ago.

Others include Joost Luiten and Pablo Larrazabal whose most recent four starts at this course include two wins and one other podium finish. Luiten was also seventh on his last outing in Austria.


Men of the Moment

Regarding good current form, Bernd Weisberger is on a decent run right now which included a top-20 finish at the US Open on Sunday.

The usually inconsistent Dave Horsey might be worth a look this week. The Englishman is a former Munich champion and was second last time out.

Further down the ranking is Jbe Kruger who has enjoyed three straight top-10s, while Eddie Pepperall appears to have turned the corner and was a creditable tied-16th at Erin Hills.

One other possible challenger is Kruger's compatriot George Coetzee who has a habit of either finishing in the top-20 - or missing the cut. This week's course should not be too penal for him.


Off the Pace

Martin Kaymer has been struggling since Augusta but is a former champion in Munich and, similar to his great friend Bernhard Langer, tends to play well on home soil.
