Bernhard Langer found his pursuit of golf's Grand Slam to be a real pain in the neck. Langer, the 1993 Masters champion, woke up Wednesday with a sore neck and thought about withdrawing from the U.S. Open. After an opening 74, he persevered with a 1-over-par 71 yesterday at Baltusrol Golf Club but ended up missing the Open's 36-hole cut after all. "I have about 25 to 30 percent restriction in movement," Langer said. "Whenever I try to make a full turn, my head goes with it. So I'm using a three-quarters backswing the last two days.

IF BERNHARD LANGER wins every senior major from now until he's ready to retire, he should still be remembered more for the two Masters he won eight years apart back when senior golf was just getting started. Even if he did wear that hard-to-explain, all-red outfit when he won the first one. "It was just like a Christmas tree, right?" he recalled. Those bookend moments were sandwiched, of course, around the delicate, 6-foot putt he couldn't get to fall that would have won the 1991 Ryder Cup for Europe, a putt that Seve Ballesteros later insisted nobody, not even him, could have made given the circumstances.

Levi, who shot a 7-under 64 to lead the opening round, started in the afternoon, when a steady rain hurt playing conditions.

Bart Bryant has played some good golf at the Constellation Senior Players Championship, standing in a tie for third after three rounds, but he's doing it with a very heavy heart. Bryant has revealed that his wife, Cathy, is battling brain cancer. "On Mother's Day, they found she had a tumor in her brain," Bryant said in an interview with Golf Channel at the Philadelphia Cricket Club. "They told us it was Stage 4 cleoblastoma, cancer of the brain. " Bryant said his wife underwent surgery "a couple of days" after the diagnosis and will enter H.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston for further treatment this week.

LAKE ORION, Mich. - Bernhard Langer surged into the lead at the U.S. Senior Open on Saturday. Langer shot a 6-under 64 to move to 10 under for the tournament, putting him ahead by 4 strokes.

Tom Lehman and Corey Pavin were in a five-way tie for second at 6-under 204. Fred Couples moved up the leader board with a 65.

Brilliant is brilliant, regardless of age. Brilliant was Bernhard Langer, a few months shy of his 59th birthday, playing with the slimmest of leads in the wickedest of winds Sunday afternoon on the Wissahickon Course at the Philadelphia Cricket Club. While John Daly embarrassed himself by acting like a churlish child at the age of 50 and Colin Montgomerie barked at people sponsoring his lucrative retirement tour, Langer calmly navigated his way to a third straight Constellation Senior Players championship, proving that the German sensation is only about substance.

A strong, steady wind swept across the Philadelphia Cricket Club yet again Sunday, but Bernhard Langer refused to have it blow away his chances of a three-peat in the final round of the Constellation Senior Players Championship. The 3-stroke lead he owned at the start of the day was not a safe one by any means, and Langer knew that. As much as he tried, though, the birdies didn't come, not a single one all day. But he remained patient; he didn't panic; and when he needed a putt with the PGA Tour Champions major on the line, he delivered.

As befitting a man of his stature on the PGA Tour Champions, Bernhard Langer was the player almost everyone watched Saturday in the third round of the Constellation Senior Players Championship. But after suffering his third bogey of the day on his seventh hole, he probably wished they were watching someone else. You don't, however, win a pair of Masters green jackets, 27 Champions tournaments, three Schwab Cup titles, and the previous two editions of this major championship by being impatient.

Brandt Jobe was excited to be out in the final grouping Saturday for the third round of the Constellation Senior Players Championship, having quipped the day before that being with two-time defending champion Bernhard Langer "means you're playing good, so that's a good thing. " But Jobe, a PGA Tour Champions rookie, had problems with his ball-striking throughout the hot and sultry day at the Philadelphia Cricket Club, going from 1 shot ahead of Langer to 4 behind following a 4-over-par 74 on the Wissahickon course.

Even though he didn't win a single tournament on the PGA Tour, Brandt Jobe enjoyed a decent career there, winning more than $9 million. This year, he began a new career on the PGA Tour Champions, where he's found that most of his former colleagues from the regular tour haven't slowed down a bit. One of those guys is Bernhard Langer, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame and the leading money winner on the 2016 tour who has won 27 Champions events,...

The temperature was in the mid-50s and the wind was howling Thursday when Jay Don Blake teed off at 7:30 a.m. in the first group of the Constellation Senior Players Championship, wondering what havoc the weather was going to create in the opening round of the PGA Tour Champions major. "We had about three, four holes right in a row just dead into the wind and it was cold, ball was going nowhere," Blake said. "It was just kind of survival. " Blake somehow survived to the tune of a 2-under 68 over the Wissahickon course at the Philadelphia Cricket Club and, to his surprise, saw that score hold up the entire day, allowing him to take a 1-stroke lead over four players.
