GOLFER Simon Dyson’s fortunes dipped to a new low at last weekend’s BMW International Open in Munich, writes Ian Appleyard.

The Malton and Norton professional finished in 152nd place - his worst finish since joining the European Tour in 2001.

Dyson, who has struggled for the last two years due to wrist problems, had missed the cut for the sixth time in seven tournaments, excluding the Shenzen International in April where he had to retire after playing just 12 holes.

He also suffered the embarrassment of carding a ‘sextuple bogey’ when taking 10 shots at the par four 16th during his final round.

Dyson exited the competition on 11 over par and only two of his rivals finished with a bigger score.

Argentina’s Andre Romero won the tournament and celebrated his first victory on the European Tour for a decade.

Romero finished on 17 under par, one shot ahead of Sergio Garcia, Richard Bland and Thomas Detry.

Dyson, a six-time former winner on the tour, will now be seeking a major improvement as he prepares for tomorrow’s HNA Open de France in Paris.

He has dropped to 200th in the ‘Race for Duba’i and 1566th ranking in the world.

The HNA Open de France is the second in the lucrative new Rolex Series and is being played at Le Golf National, the venue for next year’s Ryder Cup.

Dyson will tee-off at 11.30am and has been drawn to play alongside Ireland’s Paul Dunne and Sweden’s Johan Carlsson
