MUNICH (AP) Ernie Els of South Africa won the BMW International Open by one shot Sunday for his 28th European Tour title.

He closed with a third straight 3-under 69 to finish at 18-under 270 on the Eichenried Golf Club course. Els was in front after the first and second rounds and entered the last day as part of a three-way lead.

Thomas Bjorn of Denmark shot a 69 and finished a stroke back. Alexander Levy of France had a 71 and was another stroke off the pace for his best result.

Els is a two-time winner at both the U.S. Open and British Open. He is the first South African to win the BMW International in the competition's 25th edition.

Defending champion Danny Willett of England shot a 72. He finished with an eagle for a share of 18th place.
