“I’m really looking forward to working with BMW and the next big step in my career. BMW enjoys an excellent reputation as a golf partner around the world and I am proud to be a part of this now,” said Foos, who was travelling on a BMW Cruise e-Bike during the start of the tournament week at GC München Eichenried. “In the past two years I was able to gain valuable experience on the European Tour at the BMW International Open and experience the passion and attention to detail that BMW dedicates to golf. I will do everything to represent BMW Golfsport the best that I can throughout the world.”
Foos made headlines as a 12-year-old when he achieved a handicap of 0. In comparison: Tiger Woods was a year older when he became a scratch golfer. At 15, Foos was the best amateur of his age in the world rankings and the best German amateur among the men.
Countless national and international victories followed, including two titles in the German International Boys Amateur Championship. As the youngest winner in the history of the tournament, he won the French International Boys Champion title in 2013. The boy born in Karlsruhe achieved the best handicap that a German golfer has managed to date with a handicap of +6.4 in 2013. On his 17th birthday, Foos turned professional.
