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. Jul 15 - 11:16 AM

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.
Apr 8 - 6:14 PM

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.

Bernhard Langer is listed in the published field of next week's Principal Charity Classic on the Champions Tour.

He couldn't make a go of it at this week's Senior PGA Championship, but this is a positive sign for any of his fantasy owners that include the Champions Tour in their games.

Bernhard Langer will not tee it up in next week's Senior PGA Championship, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Langer has been sidelined following surgery on his left thumb in March. He had circled this major at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville as a potential return site to competition. John Morse has replaced the Hall of Famer in the published field.

Bill Fields of Golf World tweeted that Bernhard Langer is a question mark to return to competition at the Senior PGA Championship on May 26-29.

Fields tweeted the following this afternoon: "Just spoke to injured Bernhard Langer outside [Augusta National Golf Club] clubhouse. He says only slight chance he could be back on Champions Tour for Senior PGA." Langer had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb a couple of weeks ago. In an interview on "Masters in Depth" (as seen on DirecTV), Langer cited a probable return of "6 to 10 weeks." (The Senior PGA is seven weeks from now.) Fields added: "He has 3-4 more weeks of left thumb being immobile."

IMG Golf reported on Twitter that client Bernhard Langer will not be able to compete in the Masters due to having surgery to repair an injured left thumb.

The two-time Masters' champ incurred the injury in a biking accident. He will be out eight weeks. The unfortunately news puts an end to Langer's streak of 27 straight starts at the season's first major. He's missed the cut in each of his last five.
