Bernhard Langer creates history

Two-time Masters Champion, Bernhard Langer has created history by becoming the first man to win all five senior majors after recording a victory at the Senior PGA Championship. It is recorded as a ninth senior major win for Langer who now moves past Jack Nicklaus to the top of the list. The German went into the final round, one behind Vijay Singh but managed to shoot a four-under 68 to Singh’s 70 at the Trump National Gold Club in Washington DC. The race was very tight until it got to 16 and 17 when Langer got in front by two and didn’t have to look back then. Langer will now be looking to do well in the US Senior Open which starts in the last week of June, followed by the Senior Players Championship in July which is Langer’s favourite as he has won it the past three times.

 

Kevin Kisner wins second PGA Tour title

The American was trailing overnight by three strokes to leader Webb Simpson. It is surprising how Simpson went on to leading and finishing fifth with Kisner producing a brilliant performance in the final round. Kisner managed six birdies in last round four under par 66 to emerge victoriously. The second position was tied between defending champion Jordan Spieth, fellow American Sean O’Hair and Spain’s John Rahm. England’s Paul Casey didn’t do that well as he slumped from second to 10th on the last day. Casey recorded four bogeys in a crazy final round. Jon Rahm had the chance to force a playoff, but he missed the 10-foot birdie putt in the end as Kisner handled his nerves better than others to win the Dean & Deluca Invitational.
