Golf Roundup: Langer Wins Fifth Title of Year

Article excerpt

Langer continues Champions success

Bernhard Langer rallied to win the Dick's Sporting Goods Open on Sunday for his fifth Champions Tour victory of the year, while Kevin Sutherland followed his tour-record 59 with a 74 to drop into a tie for seventh.

The 56-year-old Langer closed with a bogey-free 66 for a one- stroke victory over Woody Austin and Mark O'Meara. Langer finished at 16-under 200 at En-Joie in Endicott, N.Y., for his 23rd career victory on the 50-and-over tour.

Sutherland, the second-round leader, had five bogeys four on the first 10 holes and three birdies in the final round. Playing his third Champions Tour event since turning 50 in June, he finished at 12 under.

Yang wins U.S. Amateur * South Korea's Gunn Yang has completed his improbable run to the U.S. Amateur title with a 2-and-1 victory over Canada's Corey Conners.

At No. 776, Yang became the lowest-ranked player in the world amateur standings to win the country's biggest title for non- professional golfers. Along the way in Johns Creek, Ga., he beat five players inside the top 100.

Warren holds off Dredge * Scotland's Marc Warren held off Bradley Dredge to win Made in Denmark by two shots, shooting a 3-under 68 in the last round to secure his third European Tour championship. Warren and Dredge were tied atop the leaderboard overnight.
