Langer wins Se­nior PGA

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

Bern­hard Langer played near-flaw­less golf and took ad­van­tage of Vi­jay Singh’s late mis­takes to win the Se­nior PGA Cham­pi­onship at Trump Na­tional for his record ninth se­nior ma­jor.

The Se­nior PGA was the only ma­jor that had eluded the 59-year-old Ger­man star dur­ing his dom­i­nant decade­long run on the 50-and-over cir­cuit. He tied Jack Nick­laus’ se­nior ma­jor record last week with a come­back vic­tory in the Re­gions Tra­di­tion in Alabama.

De­spite a few dozen pro­test­ers, the drama re­mained on the course at Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s club on the shores of the Po­tomac River. Trump, com­ing off a nine-day trip abroad, did not at­tend the fi­nal round.

Langer pulled ahead of Singh with a 12-foot birdie on the par-4 16th. Singh three-putted 17 to give Langer a two-shot ad­van­tage.
