FLOURTOWN, Pa. (AP) Bernhard Langer won the Constellation Senior Players Championship for the third straight year, holing a 12-foot par putt on the final hole Sunday for a one-stroke victory at windy Philadelphia Cricket Club.

The 58-year-old German star won his seventh senior major title - his fifth in the last 11 majors - to tie Hale Irwin for second place on the career list, a victory behind Jack Nicklaus.

"It was a tough, tough day," Langer said. "The wind was so gusty and so strong at times, I was wondering if they were going to call the tournament today. The ball was oscillating a lot and there were a few putts, if you hit them at the wrong time, the ball would have just continued to go."
