Langer edges Pavin to lift Senior Open
Monday 26 July 2010
Bernhard Langer won his first senior major with a one-shot victory over American Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin at the Senior Open Championship at Carnoustie yesterday.
The 52-year-old German finished five under par after a closing one-over-par 72 - enough to hold off the challenge of Pavin, two years his junior and playing in his maiden senior major.
Langer dropped shots at eight and nine and Pavin's birdie at 11 brought him within one shot of the lead, but he bogeyed the 15th and Langer was two clear playing the last, allowing him to complete his first major victory since his second US Masters success in 1993 despite finishing with a bogey.
Meanwhile, Richard Johnson
sank a 30-foot birdie putt on the final green to become only the second home winner of the Scandinavian Masters in the last 12 years.
