BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Bernhard Langer pulled away from the other contenders - and pulled even with Jack Nicklaus.

Langer cruised to his second straight Regions Tradition victory, shooting an 8-under-64 on Sunday to match Nicklaus' record of eight PGA Tour Champions major titles.

"Yeah, that's pretty neat," Langer said. "Not many people can say they match Jack Nicklaus in anything. To have won as many majors on this tour as he has is outstanding obviously and a thrill for me.
