Berhnard Langer Wins Regions Tradition

Bernhard Langer fired an 8-under par 64 at Greystone, and pulled away from the pack to win the Regions Tradition – his eighth major on the Champions Tour, tying Jack Nicklaus’ record.

Langer finished at 20-under 268, five shots clear of Scott McCarron (69) and Scott Parel (70), who tied for second at 15-under.

Rounding out the top-5 were Marco Dawson (66), and 54-hole leader, Fred Funk (72), who both finished tied for fourth at 14-under.

Turning Point

Langer and Funk began the back nine tied at 16-under, and the turning point came on the par-4 12th.

Funk, the most accurate driver on PGA TOUR Champions, hit his tee shot out of bounds and went on to make triple bogey. Meanwhile, Langer made a 16-footer for birdie and moved to 17-under.

The four-shot swing gave Langer a three-shot lead over Scott Parel with six holes to play.

“Yeah, that’s pretty neat. Not many people can say they match Jack Nicklaus in anything. To have won as many majors on this Tour as he has is outstanding. Obviously and a thrill for me. I’m still way behind on the (PGA TOUR), though, in majors.”
