Langer moves four shots clear

The Korea Times - - SPORTS -

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.
