Did you know?

Bernhard Langer is one of the biggest stars of the modern era in golf. In addition to his many worldwide wins on the main professional and senior tours, he was the inaugural World No.1 male golfer when the Official World Golf Rankings were introduced in 1986.

In the 2014 Senior Open Championship played at Royal Porthcawl, his winning margin of 13 shots was the highest in the championship, the highest in a Champions Tour event and the second highest in any major championship. Langer returned to Royal Porthcawl in 2017 and won the Senior Open title for a third time. The win gave him his 10th senior major title, more than any other player in the history of the senior majors.

Langer lives in Boca Raton, Florida and his home town of Anhausen in Germany.
