BOCA RATON, Fla. — Bernhard Langer made himself right at home in the Oasis Championship.
Playing 10 minutes from his house, the 61-year-old German star closed with a 7-under 65 on Sunday in windy condition at The Old Course at Broken Sound for a five-stroke victory. He finished at a tournament-record 19-under 197 for his 39th victory on the 50-and-over circuit and earned $255,000 to break Hale Irwin's tour career record with $27,196,504.
"There's many things to celebrate," Langer said. "It means a great deal to win in front of your home crowd, your family, your friends. Winning at home is always extremely special, no doubt about it. It made it more special having my first win with my daughter Jackie, who's only caddied three times for me."
