Bernhard Langer, the defending champion of the TimberTech Championship, proved once again why he is a force to be reckoned with. Despite a lackluster performance on Friday, where he only made two birdies and shot an even-par 71, Langer made a remarkable comeback on Saturday. He shot a dazzling 8-under 63 on the Old Course at Broken Sound Club, tying former major champion David Toms for second place.
Langer’s remarkable performance on Saturday echoes his triumph in last year’s TimberTech Championship. Just like last year, where he won by six shots after a 66, Langer showed his resilience by delivering an exceptional round of 63 after an even-par start.
During an interview, Langer expressed his satisfaction with his performance, stating, “I played really good and made some putts. It wasn’t crazy, but I made far more putts than I had for a while so that was fun.”
While Langer’s performance is impressive, the current leader is Padraig Harrington, a three-time major champion. However, many still believe that Langer poses the greatest threat. Harrington admitted, “Bernhard is obviously a dangerous man when he’s near the lead.”
Despite being 66 years old, Langer continues to defy expectations and set new goals for himself. After winning his 46th career PGA Tour Champions title earlier this summer, Langer declared, “Once I won No. 46, I thought, ‘Well, let’s shoot for the moon, let’s go for 50.’” His determination and skill have made him a respected competitor on the tour.
With his remarkable display of skill and his history of success at the TimberTech Championship, it’s clear that Langer is a force to be reckoned with. As the final round approaches, all eyes will be on Langer as he vies for his fourth TimberTech title.
