Bernhard Langer Surges to 25th Title

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN in a couple of months when Bernhard Langer will be forced to putt without anchoring. The German golf legend probably still fumes about that decision. In the meantime, he keeps on winning and keeps on raking in big money on the second-chance tour.

Langer's 25th Champions Tour title and second win this season came on Sunday at the San Antonio Championship, where he fired a sizzling 7-under 65 to beat Scott Dunlop by three shots.

"It's always special to play well," Langer said, "especially on a Sunday when it really matters, when you're in contention. I was pushed again by a bunch of other players. It was just a matter of who was going to close the best."

Langer's 65 included eight birdies and a lone bogey.

The $270,000 check put Langer over $2 million for the season, the fourth consecutive year he's exceeded that mark. Langer also pulled within 66 points of Charles Schwab Cup points leader Colin Montgomerie with two events to go. Jeff Maggert is also within striking distance.

Watch out, Colin.
