The 31-year-old Cabrera-Bello, who has finished fourth, 13th and second in his last three events, put in another good performance on a sun-drenched day at the Eichenreid Golf Club.

“I have been playing well for a few weeks now,” he told reporters after reeling off nine birdies.

“I putted really nicely and holed a few good long ones so it was nice to keep the momentum going after a week off.”

Cabrera-Bello has won twice on the European Tour and lost out to Paraguay’s Fabrizio Zanotti in a four-way playoff in last year’s BMW event.

Title favorite Henrik Stenson, the world number seven, opened with a 67 but local hero Martin Kaymer struggled to a 72.
