In Orlando, Florida, Tiger Woods reminisced about his early encounters with professional golf when, as an 18-year-old high school senior, he made his inaugural cut at a European Tour event in Thailand, coincidentally playing alongside Bernhard Langer for the first time. Fast forward three decades, and the age-defying Langer, now 66, concluded an extraordinary year by partnering with his son, Jason, to achieve a remarkable 13-under 59 in challenging 30 mph winds, securing a two-shot victory over David Duval and his son.

This victory marked Langer’s fifth PNC Championship title, a feat that ties the record held by Raymond Floyd. Woods, playing with his 14-year-old son Charlie, delivered memorable moments, including an audacious chip-in birdie on the ninth hole that left even Woods laughing. The PNC Championship, designed to showcase major champions alongside family members, thrived on such heartwarming and entertaining instances.

For Langer, 2023 was truly exceptional, featuring a record-breaking 46th win on the PGA Tour Champions, surpassing the senior victory record previously held by Hale Irwin. One of the highlights of Langer’s year was clinching the U.S. Senior Open, a testament to his enduring skill and determination.

Langer and his son, Jason, started the PNC Championship three shots behind but quickly seized the lead, maintaining their momentum with 10 birdies through 11 holes. Jason’s impeccable putting skills, honed through dedicated practice, impressed Langer, contributing significantly to their success.

The disparity between Langer’s PNC titles and Floyd’s lies in longevity, a quality evident throughout Langer’s illustrious career. The German golfer, who won his first PNC Championship in 2005, continues to defy expectations, wearing the Willie Park Trophy once again after 18 years.

Reflecting on their first encounter, Woods recalled Langer as a rail-thin teenager with exceptional speed and power. Langer’s enduring success and resilience on the greens, adapting to different styles, left a lasting impression on Woods, who commended Langer’s determination and personality.

As Woods concludes his year with encouraging signs of recovery from injuries, he remains optimistic about 2024, aiming to play once a month. Langer, while celebrating his recent victory, entertained the prospect of future PNC Championships with his grandchildren, showcasing his enduring love for the game and commitment to its legacy.
