We take a look at the clubs Bernhard Langer used to become the oldest player to make the cut at the Masters
What clubs did Bernhard Langer hit to shoot 69, 72 and become the oldest player to make the cut at the Masters?
Langer beat the previous record held by Tommy Aaron, who was aged 63 and 1 month when he made the cut back in 2000.
“Yes, I am a little bit proud to tell you the truth. When you think of all the legends who have played this tournament – guys like Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and on and on – and so for me to be the oldest golfer to have made the cut means a lot.”
“I saw Tommy Aaron at the Past Champions Dinner on Tuesday. I told him that his record of making the cut at 63 is an impressive achievement but I warned him that I was coming after it, and that I had a chance this week. He laughed and wished me luck, and here we are. I have known Tommy for more than 30 years because of the Past Champions Dinner and because he kept on competing for many years. He is a gentleman of the game and he has always treated me very well. We have respect for each other.”
“You know it is not easy to make the cut here. It is not an easy golf course, especially in recent years as the golf course has become much longer, so it is hard for us 50 and 60-year-olds to make the cut. It is not surprising that Tommy’s record stood for so long.”
