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. Apr 13 - 4:38 PM

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.

Bernhard Langer chased an opening 72 with a 5-under par 67 in the second round of THE PLAYERS.

It was a round for the ages for the 50-year young German. Langer had an eagle and four birdies in his first eight holes on Friday and then added the exclamation point with a long-range birdie putt at 17 after a tee shot that barely cleared the front edge of the island green. The two-time runner-up (1995/1993) sits one stroke behind the 36-hole clubhouse lead as the afternoon wave finishes.

Bernhard Langer defeated Jay Haas on the seventh hole of sudden death to win the Champion Tour's Toshia Classic on Sunday.

Langer originally planned on entering the Honda Classic two weeks ago but has instead played in four Champions Tour events in 2008. He has full-time playing status on the PGA Tour but will not play until the Masters, where he hasn't played the weekend since 2005 (T-20).

Bernhard Langer, 50, will sprinkle in PGA Tour appearances in between a heavy dose of action on the Champions Tour in 2008.

According to his website, Langer will make his '08 PGA Tour debut at the Honda Classic on February 28, his only scheduled start before the Masters. Forget about his age, Langer is consistent and has a PGA Tour card. Of course, his days as a long-term investment are over but in weekly leagues, he could/should still produce when he shows. For those of you in one-and-done leagues, keep him on your list of hired guns when you're trying to save full-time players for another tourney.
