Langer wins Schwab cup in Scottsdale
59 year-old Champions Tour member Bernhard Langer won the Schwab Cup and all the glory that goes along with it Sunday at Desert Mountain’s Cochise course in Scottsdale Arizona.
The win marks the three-peat victory for Langer who withstood a charge from fellow competitor Colin Montgomerie, shooting a third round 64, and taking home $250,000 for his efforts. He finished second in the tournament behind winner Paul Goydos, but won the coveted Schwab Cup and the $1,000,000 purse as the season long points winner.
Sunny days and unmatched course conditions graced the three-day long tournament, as maintenance crews had two months to prepare the venue. In aerial video, the Cochise course had gained a brilliant green grass color and greens proved tricky for the players, but rolled to perfection.
