Bernhard Langer constructed a marvelous 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the 80th Masters to climb inside the top 5 on the leaderboard at 1-under 215.
The 58-year-old was not phased by the windy conditions at Augusta National, striping 12 (of 14) fairways and landing just as many greens in regulation. He traded three birdies with just a pair of bogeys before making the turn at 1-under. The German squared a couple of bogeys before the magic started. On the par-5 13th hole, he lagged his eagle-putt to inside a foot for a tap-in birdie. He followed it up with a chip-in birdie on the par-4 14th and proceeded to splash in a 14-footer on the par-5 15th for a third straight birdie. Also notable was a seven-footer on the last to save bogey. The 1985 and 1993 Masters champion was not a favorite entering the week but will have another run at the green jacket come Sunday.

Two-time Masters winner Bernhard Langer will tee it up at Augusta National for the 32nd time this week.

Now 58, Langer will once more try and prove that he can still be competitive at the venue where he slipped his arms into the green jacket in 1985 and 1993. A run of missed cuts between 2006 and 2012 suggested the course was getting too much but the German loves a challenge and hit back to finish T25 in 2013 and, remarkably, T8 in 2014. He did miss the cut last year but he continues to excel on the Champions Tour and the competitive fire still burns brightly. He'll peg it up in the first two rounds with American Hunter Mahan and young French amateur Romain Langasque. They start at 12:55 local time.

Course designer Bernhard Langer hung up a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round at the Porsche European Open in Germany.

It's easy to overemphasise any possible edge in such circumstances but gamers or bettors who backed Langer on the basis of him knowing the lie of the land better than anyone else will feel rewarded by today's opening lap. The double Masters champion is 58 now but has lost none of his legendary competitiveness and showed that again today after an indifferent start. Langer fell over par for the day after following a birdie at 4 with back-to-back bogeys at 5 and 6 but he birdied 9 and came home in just 31 to end the day in a tie for seventh. He's just two swings behind joint leaders Bernd Wiesberger and Benjamin Hebert.

Bernhard Langer will know the lay of the land better than anyone in the field when he lines up in the Porsche European Open which takes place over the Beckenbauer course at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

The German legend co-designed the course and has witnessed it play host to three Challenge Tour events since opening in 2002. As for this week's tournament, Langer has history there too. The European Open was part of the European Tour schedule from 1978 until being dropped in 2009 and during that time Langer lifted the trophy twice -- at Sunningdale in 1985 and the K Club in 1995. The double Masters champion has finished runner-up in three of his last four starts at seniors level while the last time he teed it up in a European Tour event he was T78 at the Open Championship.

World Golf Hall of Fame member Bernhard Langer contests his 30th Open Championship on The Old Course at St. Andrews and is paired the first two rounds with past champions Tom Lehman (1996) and Justin Leonard (1997).

Langer is twice a runner-up at The Open: 1981/Royal St. George's; 1984/St. Andrews. In total, he's 22-for-29 with eight top 10s, the latest a T5 at St. Andrews in 2005 (he didn't play the 2010 edition on the Old Course). The 57-year-old missed the cut by five strokes in 2011 (Royal St. George's) in his latest appearance. This week marks the 30th playing of The Open for the 57-year-old and in a recent CNN interview admits it may time to bid adieu, saying, "It will be hard to play that last round when it happens," he says. "It could be this year, I don't know. I just have to enjoy it." The German enters the week third in the Charles Schwab Cup on the Champions Tour with seven top 10s in 11 starts, including his 24th career win at the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS in June. Langer has two starts in 2015 on the PGA TOUR missing the cut by two at THE PLAYERS and by one at the Masters.

World Golf Hall of Fame member Bernhard Langer qualified for this week's PLAYERS by winning the 2014 Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS and is teeing it up at TPC Sawgrass for the 24th time.

The 2014 Champions Tour Player of the Year is the oldest player in the field this week at 57-years-young. He returns to THE PLAYERS for the first time since a T15 in 2008 and also recorded runner-up finishes here twice (1993, 1995). The German is 6-for-6 on the Champions Tour season with four top 25s, including three top 10s. He missed the cut at the Masters in his only other PGA TOUR start of 2015.

Bernhard Langer will again look to roll back the years when he returns to Augusta National.

The 57-year-old German, who won the 1985 and 1993 Masters, shot a final-round 69 to finish T8 last year -- his best showing since a T4 in 2004. Langer was also T25 in 2013 so gamers need to give him serious consideration despite his age and obvious lack of length off the tee. He hasn't been as dominant as usual on the Champions Tour this year but a T9 on his last start suggests nothing is awry.

Bernhard Langer fired a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the Masters to end his week at even-par 288.

Langer had a wild ride around Augusta National Golf Club, circling six birdies and an eagle, but handing back a bogey and two double bogeys. Now a Champions Tour player, he returns every year thanks to his victories in 1985 and 1993. Considering he is the clubhouse leader, he is plenty competitive despite not regularly playing on the PGA TOUR with the flat bellies.

Bernhard Langer will make his 31st Masters appearance this week at Augusta National.

Langer showed signs of life last year when he broke out of a six year Masters slump to make the cut and earn a top 25 while at it. The two-time Masters champ proved that he still has game, but fantasy gamers would be unwise to expect a repeat showing in 2014.

Bernhard Langer turned in an even-par 36-36=72 in the third round of the Masters to remain at 2-under 214.

Langer's round was remarkably consistent, with 16 pars only broken up with a birdie at the par-4 third and a bogey at the par-4 fifth. That the Champion's Tour regular in contention is a surprise to many, but he has a tall mountain to climb if he is to win his third green jacket on Sunday.

Bernhard Langer has turned in a pair of 1-under-par 71s to begin the 77th Masters.

The two-time champion of this tournament has hit 26 greens in regulation and taken a tidy 59 putts. He's squared seven bogeys, four of which today, but reeled in the red numbers with four birdies on Thursday and an eagle-3 (at the second hole) and three birdies today. He signed his card sitting three strokes off the pace of 36-hole clubhouse leader and fellow senior, Fred Couples.

Bernhard Langer returns to the Masters as a two-time past champion.

Langer’s first win came in his third start, back in 1985. His second fell in 1993. He had a remarkably consistent run beginning in 1984 and ending in 2002 where he never missed a cut. He’s made just two of 10 since then, illustrating the correlation of the lengthening of the golf course and increased age to his performance.

Bernhard Langer opening with a 3-under-par 33-36=69 at the Berenberg Bank Masters in Cologne, Germany.

Langer is tied for sixth in the 72-man field in this European Senior Tour event that will go 54 holes. This is his first start anywhere since having surgery on his left thumb in March.

Bernhard Langer is listed in the published field of next week's Berenberg Bank Masters on the European Senior Tour.

This event is held in Cologne, Germany, which no doubt helps inspire the native German to commit. Langer had to pull out of the Principal Charity Classic early two weeks ago because his recovering thumb wasn't ready for the rigors of a full golf tournament.

Bernhard Langer has withdrawn from this week's Principal Charity Classic on the Champions Tour.

Hoping to return to competition since having surgery on his left thumb in March, Langer opted for at least one more week of rest. "My thumb is just not ready," he told The Des Moines Register after testing it out in today's pro-am. "I played nine holes today and it’s just too painful. It was tough sitting out nine weeks, 10 now, and it’s going to be longer. It’s disappointing that I’m not there yet." He's now planning a visit with a specialist in Germany, where he'll fly on Wednesday. The Champions Tour will be in North Carolina next week before taking a week off.
