Langer Wins Boeing Classic Playoff for 29th Senior Title
SNOQUALMIE (AP) — Bernhard Langer made a 3-foot birdie putt on the first hole of a playoff with Woody Austin and Kevin Sutherland on Sunday to win the PGA Tour Champions’ Boeing Classic for the second time.
A day after his 59th birthday, Langer birdied the par-5 18th in regulation for a 5-under 67 to match Austin and Sutherland at 13-under 203 at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. Austin also had a 67, and Sutherland shot 64.
Langer played the back nine in 6-under 30, also making birdies on Nos. 10-13 and 15.
Also the 2010 winner, the German star took advantage of Austin and Sutherland both finding bunkers on the 18th in the playoff. Langer won for the fourth time this season and the 29th on the 50-and-over tour, tying him for second with Lee Trevino on the career list.
Gene Sauers, the second-round leader and U.S. Senior Open winner two weeks ago, shot a 72 to finish a shot out of the playoff.
