Langer accepts Schwab near miss
Bernhard Langer says he has no regrets over his failure to win this year's Charles Schwab Cup.
The German won the opening two events of the Champions Tour's play-off series to take a commanding lead in the battle to top the order of merit heading into the final week of the campaign.
However, he struggled to find his rhythm in the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship but hit back with a 64 on Sunday to seal a 12th place finish at the Phoenix Country Club.
It was not enough to take the jackpot as Kevin Sutherland leapfrogged him with his maiden senior tour title in 78 attempts.
Inevitably questions were raised regarding the format of the play-offs but Langer refused to criticise the way the series is set up, insisting the most entertaining part is the fact anyone can win.
"It was meant to be play-offs,” Langer said. “Everybody in the field was given a chance to win. Is it fair? No, it's not, but that's how it is right now."
