Munich - Reigning British Open champion, Ernie Els, led from start to finish to capture the BMW International Open here on Sunday.

Denmark's Thomas Bjorn, winner of the event 13 years ago, was left to count the costs of a 14th hole double bogey in signing for a score of 69 for an 18-under par total.

The win is Els' 68th worldwide and comes just four weeks before the defence of his British Open title at Muirfield where he will return on Tuesday for a practice round and a first visit since capturing the 2002 Open and the third of four Major victories.
