Langer romps to Senior British Open win

GERMANY'S Bernhard Langer shot four rounds in the 60s to win the Senior British Open, beating out Scotland's Colin Montgomerie by 13 shots.

GERMANY'S Bernhard Langer has won the Senior British Open by a whopping 13 shots at Royal Porthcawl, Wales, as he set a new record winning margin in a major at a senior event.

The 56-year-old, who won the Masters in 1985 and 1993, shot four rounds in the 60s to finish 18 under on Sunday, and left Scotland's Colin Montgomerie a distant second on the way to his third win on Welsh soil.

The 13-shot winning advantage, in a major, eclipsed the previous mark of 12 held by American Hale Irwin at the 1997 Senior PGA Championship.

He now has 94 professional wins, including a Senior British Open win in 2010, the same season he won the Senior US Open.

Langer also won six Ryder Cups as a player and captained Europe to victory in 2004.

Canada's Rick Gibson, Barry Lane of England and American Tom Pernice Jnr finished in a tie for third on two under as only five players finished under par over 72 holes.
