BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (AP) Fresh off a landmark victory, Bernhard Langer tries to enter a league of his own at the Senior PGA Championship.

Langer is coming off the 100th victory of his career - at a major, no less - when he won the Regions Tradition in Alabama. It was his sixth major championship as a senior, and he joined Jack Nicklaus as the only players to win four different majors on the PGA Tour Champions

Nicklaus was the first to win the Senior Grand Slam - it took him all of two years to win all four after he turned 50 in 1990 - but he had largely retired when the Senior British Open was added to the major rotation. Nicklaus only played that once in its first year as a major in 2003.
