If the 64-year-old, two-time Masters Champion had looked into his rear-view mirror, he would have seen his previous wins at the Chubb Classic – in 2011, 2013 and 2016.
On Sunday, Langer secured his 4th win at The Chubb Classic and his 43rd win on the PGA TOUR Champions. The German golfer has six Charles Schwab Cup season titles, and now 43 victories on the Champions Tour. In October, he earned the title of oldest tour winner at the Dominion Energy Charity Classic in Virginia.
Only Hale Irwin has won more on the Champions Tour, and Langer is only 2 wins behind him. When reminded of this on Sunday he quipped: “I’m coming after you, Hale.”
Langer, who never trailed in 54 holes finished at 16-under 200 to win by 3 strokes over Tim Petrovic.
