Golf Business News – Langer to defend Senior Open title at Sunningdale


Bernhard Langer will bid to capture The Senior Open Presented by Rolex for a fifth time when he defends his title at Sunningdale Golf Club from July 22-25.

The evergreen German made history at Royal Lytham & St Annes in 2019 as he claimed The Senior Open crown for the fourth time, one more than Gary Player and Tom Watson with whom he had previously shared the record for most victories.

His triumph two years ago was his 11th Senior Major Championship, the most of anyone in the history of the game, and he also set a new benchmark as the oldest player to win a Senior Major, aged 61.

The two-time Masters champion has dominated over-50s golf for more than a decade, winning 42 titles since turning 50, and he is looking forward to competing in Europe for the first time in two years when he tees it up on Sunningdale’s Old Course in July.

“I have been the reigning champion for two years now due to the pandemic and it is definitely now the time to defend my title,” he said. “I have such fond memories of Royal Lytham & St Annes in 2019 and I cannot wait to try to keep hold of my trophy at Sunningdale this year.

“I remember playing at Sunningdale in 2000 in the Seve Trophy and it was a wonderful occasion. We had a fantastic team, including Seve as our captain, and Sunningdale provided the perfect setting, as it will for this year’s Senior Open. This event is one of the highlights of the year and I am really excited to return to UK to play in July.”

Tickets to watch the players in action at Europe’s only Senior Major Championship are on sale now. Early Bird prices are £25 for the first round on Thursday, £30 on Friday and Saturday, and £33 for the final round on Sunday. A season ticket for the week costs £80. To buy tickets click here.
