Without forgetting Martin Kaymer (scored in 2008), Yannik Paul, Jannik De Bruyn (returning from third place in Emilia-Romagna) Freddy Schott, Hurly Long and Maximilian Kieffer.
A large Italian component also challenged the Teutonic forces.

In fact, there will be nine Azzurri competing. With Guido Migliozzi and Matteo Manassero (both qualified for the Paris Games), in 7th and 15th place respectively in the Race to Dubai, the order of merit of the highest European circuit, there will also be Andrea Pavan, Filippo Celli, Edoardo Molinari, Francesco Laporta, Renato Paratore Lorenzo Scalise and Gregorio De Leo.

The latter, from Piedmont, earned a place in the field thanks to his tenth place last Sunday. The Roman Pavan is among the past winners of the competition. Winner in 2019, he is coming off two consecutive Top 5 finishes at the KLM Open (4 / o) and the Italian Open (5 / o) respectively.

Also in form are Manassero (7th in Holland and 10th in Cervia) and Celli (10th in both Amsterdam and Emilia-Romagna).
The event, the last act of the European Swing, will offer 2,500,000 dollars as prizes, of which 425,000 will go to the winner.

Furthermore, the top five finishers in the Top 20 of the Race to Dubai, if not already qualified, will take the pass to compete in The Open, the fourth and final men's Major, from 18 to 21 July in Scotland. The South African Thriston Lawrence will defend the title won in 2023.

Among the most anticipated champions are also the American Patrick Reed and the New Zealander Ryan Fox. In Munich there will be a standing ovation for Bernhard Langer. The 66-year-old from Anhausen, champion of The Masters in 1985 and 1993, captain of team Europe at the 2004 Ryder Cup, will play on the DP World Tour for the 513th and last time.

With 42 victories under his belt on the circuit, after rupturing his Achilles tendon, he returned to competition on the PGA Tour Champions where he boasts a record of 46 victories. Since 2012, it will be the first time he plays in Munich, which is preparing to pay him the right tribute.
