Golf Pro Bernhard Langer Nabs 6th Charles Schwab Cup


- Grant Whittington

There’s no competition quite like the recently concluded PGA Tour Champions Charles Schwab Cup. With a pool purse this year set at $2.1 million – with the winner’s share a whopping $1 million – it’s one of the cash-richest golf tournaments on the Tour. This makes it especially popular with new betting sites too.

A total of 72 players qualified for this year’s series. 36 of those players qualified for the season finale – with the qualifying criteria based on a points earnings system that allots 1 point per dollar earned during the regular season, and 2 points per dollar for the three Playoff events.

The winner is the player with the most points at the end of the three-event championship.

The Top 5 Finishers

At the start of last week, Bernhard Langer came into golf event holding a substantial lead over follow-uppers Jim Furyk, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Ernie Els, and Jerry Kelly.

The formidable Top 5 ended their stunning run in the following order:

  • 1. Bernhard Lager - $1 million
  • 2. Jim Furyk - $500,000
  • 3. Miguel Angel Jimenez - $300,000
  • 4. Ernie Els - $200,000
  • 5. Jerry Kelly - $100,000

Langer’s win on Sunday marked his 6th record Charles Schwab Cup claim. The German golf pro already managed to top the season-long rankings even after he’d one only one event in the season. And even he didn’t win the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, he’d still managed to secure enough points to bank the end-of-season title.

Worth noting is that Langer has an impressive 42 PGA Tour Champions victories under his belt. This means the 64-year-old is now only three wins removed from matching the most wins ever secured as part of the senior tour.

But for Langer and fans at new betting sites, it could easily have ended very differently. Speaking during the post-round interview, Langer said he very nearly decided to withdraw from the event. He had apparently experienced bank issues at the start but said that those had thankfully gotten better as time wore on.

Probably His Last

But if Langer’s post-season words are anything to go by, this might have been the last Charles Schwab title of his career.

The golf veteran praised the second-placed Jim Furyk’s incredible performance. While adding that he (Furyk) would have many more chances to win the title in years to come and bettors would have many more opportunities to wager on him. He however added that for him personally, his sixth will likely end up being his last.

After battling back pain all week long, Langer managed to finish the event with a score of -12 and at 17th place. Had Jim Furyk managed to play an eagle on the 18th, Langer would have missed out on his sixth Schwab Cup title.
