Oasis Championship 2019

R3 Bernahrd Langer wins 39th Champions title

February 08-10
The Old Course at Broken Sound,  Boca Raton, Florida
$1,700,000


Round 1, Round 2


Bernhard Langer made himself right at home in the Oasis Championship.


Playing 10 minutes from his house, the 61-year-old German star closed with a 7-under 65 on Sunday in windy condition at The Old Course at Broken Sound for a five-stroke victory. He finished at a tournament-record 19-under 197 for his 39th victory on the 50-and-over circuit and earned $255,000 to break Hale Irwin's tour career record with $27,196,504.

''There's many things to celebrate,'' Langer said. ''It means a great deal to win in front of your home crowd, your family, your friends. Winning at home is always extremely special, no doubt about it. It made it more special having my first win with my daughter Jackie, who's only caddied three times for me.''

Langer moved within six of Irwin's tour victory record and won in his 13th straight season to extend his record.

''The key to success is a lot of things,'' Langer said. ''You've got to be healthy, otherwise you can't play, and a lot of guys at age 61 aren't healthy anymore. They had this operation or that operation or a knee replacement or a hip replacement or whatever it may be. So I've been fortunate enough not to have any major surgeries so far besides my thumb in 2011, so that's key.''

Langer birdied five of the first seven holes in a bogey-free round.

''One of my best starts ever, probably,'' Langer said. ''And in these conditions, as windy as it was today, it was really, really good. I was very pleased with the way my short game held up. I putted really good, because sometimes with the long putter it's even harder in windy conditions. But I read the greens well, my speed was good and I was fortunate enough to make a whole bunch of them.''

He also won the 2010 event and finished second last year.


Marco Dawson was second after a 69.

Bob Estes shot a 68 to finish third at 13 under, and David Toms was another stroke back after a 70. Scott McCarron (67), Gene Sauers (69) and Woody Austin (70) were 11 under, and Fred Couples (70) and Ken Tanigawa (70) followed at 10 under.

Retief Goosen (72) tied for 24th at 6 under in his senior debut. Gary Nicklaus, also making his first tour start, had a 73 to tie for 51st at 1 over. The 50-year-old son of Jack Nicklaus played on a sponsor exemption.

Round 2 - Bernhard Langer eagles 18th, takes lead in Boca Raton

Bernhard Langer eagled the par-5 18th for a 4-under 68 and a one-stroke lead Saturday in the PGA Tour Champions' Oasis Championship.


Langer rebounded from a bogey on the par-4 17th with the eagle to reach 12-under 132 at The Old Course at Broken Sound.

''It was sweet after making bogey on 17 from the middle of the fairway,'' Langer said. ''After making my first bogey of the week there, it was nice to finish with three perfect shots.''

The 61-year-old German star won the 2010 event and finished second last year, two strokes behind Mark Calcavecchia. Langer lives 10 minutes from the course.

''I know the golf course, know how to play it,'' Langer said. ''It's a shot-maker's course. You've got to drive the ball well and hit greens and hopefully roll a few in. There's no excuse if I mess up because I know how to play every hole. But the wind makes it very tough, always does, and the wind was up today and it's probably going to be blowing even more tomorrow.''


Marco Dawson was second after a 67, and David Toms (67) and Brandt Jobe (65) were two strokes back at 10 under in the first full-field event of the season. First-round leader Jesper Parnevik followed his opening 63 with a 72 to drop into a tie for fifth at 9 under with Bob Estes (68), Tom Byrum (69) and Woody Austin (70).

Fred Couples was 8 under after a 69.

Retief Goosen was tied for 18th at 6 under after his second 69 in his senior debut.

Gary Nicklaus, also making his first tour start, followed an opening 67 with a 77 to fall into a tie for 49th at even par. The 50-year-old son of Jack Nicklaus is playing on a sponsor exemption.

Round 1 - Jesper Parnevik shoots 63 to take lead in Florida

Jesper Parnevik shot a 9-under 63 on Friday in the Oasis Championship to take a one-stroke lead over Bernhard Langer.


Parnevik had four straight birdies on Nos. 4-7 on his final nine on The Old Course at Broken Sound. The 53-year-old Swede won the 2016 Insperity Invitational for his lone PGA Tour Champions victory.

He took the first-round lead a day after going into ''panic mode'' while struggling with his game.

''I probably tried 40 putters just this week and probably 50 different strokes,'' Parnevik said. ''Nothing was working. At the last second, I said I'll do everything opposite from what I think. If I slide my hips like crazy, I feel like I'm hanging back, bam, that works. So I did that, which felt like terrible, but man, it was unbelievable. Man, I'm mostly shocked right now.''

Langer closed with birdies on Nos. 17 and 18.

''It's a three-day event,'' Langer said. ''You can't afford to have a mediocre day somewhere. You need three good rounds if you want to win the tournament. I played fairly solid golf most of the time, a couple of good up-and-downs, a couple long putts, so very happy with it.''

The 61-year-old German won the 2010 event and finished second last year, two strokes behind Mark Calcavecchia.

Woody Austin, Gene Sauers, Tim Petrovic and Ken Tanigawa shot 65 in the first full-field event of the season, and Tom Lehman, Kevin Sutherland, Tom Byrum and Marco Dawson followed at 66. Lehman won the season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship last month in Hawaii.


Gary Nicklaus, the 50-year-old son of Jack Nicklaus, had a 67 in his PGA Tour Champions debut on a sponsor exemption. Nicklaus did not get through Champions qualifying last year.

''I was out of my element and kind of shaking like a leaf, which I didn't expect,'' he said. ''But I kind of pulled it together, birdied the third hole and was off to the races.''

Fred Couples also opened with a 67.

Retief Goosen also made his senior debut, shooting 69. He will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in June.

John Daly opened with a 71, and Calcavecchia had a 72. Hal Sutton shot 73 in his first start on the tour since May 2017.
