Bernhard Langer, teeing off during the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship earlier this year, is the oldest champion on the PGA Tour Champions.

BOCA RATON — Bernhard Langer’s bar is a bit higher than us mortals.

In the past 15 months, the Boca Raton resident won for a 43rd time on the PGA Tour Champions, becoming the oldest champion on the tour. He also captured his record sixth Charles Schwab Cup. He not only shot his age twice — the first time coming on his 64th birthday — but beat his age with a 63.

When asked about his year entering the TimberTech Championship, which starts Friday at Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club, Langer was lukewarm in his assessment — some good moments but not as many as the last dozen or so years when he’s dominated the 50-and-over circuit.

“It’s been a solid year, not quite as good as the last 12 or 13, they were exceptionally good,” Langer said.
