Golf is a great game; millions around the world on a daily basis enjoy it. The greatest thing about it is that anyone can play, and at almost any age. There is no age requirement, no huge monetary investment needed, you just show up, and hit a ball into a hole. Recently, Bernhard Langer claimed one of the most prestigious tournaments in the game. The U.S. Senior Open has a new champion.
He shot a great game; he was on point all day long. In a great display of skill, he shot a bogey-free 3-under 67 on Sunday. He finished at 8 under for the tournament at Sahalee Country Club. Last week, he claimed another big title; he took the Senior British Open title at Carnoustie by storm. Many people would have taken a few days rest after traveling such a great distance, but not Bernhard Langer, he stepped right into his golf shoes.
He claimed he was the underdog, not the favorite at all. Despite being the unpopular player, he had no qualms about dashing the hopes of the fans. Fred Couples has to wait another year to try and claim the title for himself. Despite being the hometown favorite, Langer simply played circles around him.
Couples failed to get any putts to drop, and Langer was sinking them left and right. His long ball was just as good, all day his driving was on point. Couples was getting his drives knocked off course, and even ended up with one in a pond, his one shot lead became a three shot deficit.
The best thing about this tournament was the fact that it showed people everywhere that there is no age limit on fun. With so many people these days struggling with their health, getting out on the course could do them some good. Be sure and follow all the most up to date golf information at www.scoresandodds.com.
