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.
