Munich: Pablo Larrazabal birdied the fifth playoff hole to beat fellow Spaniard Sergio Garcia and win the BMW International Open on Sunday.

Larrazabal made his short put on the par-5 18th after Garcia missed from about 5 feets. The outcome still allowed both players to qualify for the British Open next month.

Garcia birdied the 18th during his final round to shoot 4-under 68, matching Larrazabal at 16 under and forcing the playoff. They matched each other`s score at No. 18 twice, and then did the same at No. 12 and No. 17, before playing the last hole for the fourth time on Sunday.
