BRIDGEND, Wales (AP) Bernhard Langer ran away with the Senior British Open on Sunday for his fourth senior major title, finishing a Champions Tour-record 13 strokes ahead of Scotland's Colin Montgomerie.
The 56-year-old German closed with a 4-under 67 at sunny and breezy Royal Porthcawl to finish at 18-under 266. He opened with rounds of 65, 66 and 68.
"The golf course is unbelievably tough," Langer said. "To have this weather for four days is unreal, it's like playing in Florida with a bit of wind. The secret was I didn't make too many mistakes and my driver was very good and my long putting was excellent, although not quite today as I was lacking a little. Perhaps my lead was too big."
