But it was in the second round that he gave away too many shots despite holing six birdies. He also had six bogeys that spoilt his card.
Andres Romero held on to his nerve down the stretch to claim his first European Tour title in 10 years at Golfclub M nchen Eichenried.
It all came down to a four-way battle between Romero, Masters Tournament champion Sergio Garcia, Richard Bland and Thomas Detry.
Tournament invite Romero produced a closing birdie to sign for a 65 and set the target at 17-under and with the final pairing of Bland and Garcia both carding late bogeys, the Argentinian won his first European Tour title since the Deutsche Bank Players’ Championship of Europe in 2007.
Detry carded a closing 66 to finish at 16-under alongside Garcia and Bland, who both carded rounds of 69. The trio finished tied second.
Swede Rikard Karlberg carded a 66 to finish at 14-under, a shot clear of England’s Tommy Fleetwood who closed with a 67 and Italy’s Renato Paratore who signed for a 68.
Spaniard Nacho Elvira and South African Hennie Otto were at 12-under, one ahead of last season’s winner Henrik Stenson and American David Lipsky.
