Langer moves four shots clear
LONDON (AFP) — Bernhard Langer moved four shots clear after three rounds of the Senior British Open at Royal Porthcawl in Wales on Saturday as the German veteran eyed a record 10th senior major.
Langer had moved level with Gary Player as a nine-time major champion with victory in the Senior PGA Championship in May.
“There’s a lot of guys waiting for me to fall apart. So I need to shoot a good round, hopefully under par, depending on the conditions. If I can do that, then I make it difficult for the others to catch me,” said Langer, who won by 13 strokes the last time the Senior British Open was held at the Welsh course in 2014 when he finshed 18 under. Langer, five under for the tournament, was one of five players who started the day at the top of the leaderboard on one over par.
