That means he’s one short of Hale Irwin’s record of 45 wins after your weekend 63-66 saw him explode to a six-shot victory over American Paul Goydos in Florida.

Can we stop for a second and appreciate that Langer is past his age? Craziness.

Of his victory, Langer told the media:

“It’s always amazing to win anywhere in the world, but winning in your hometown in front of family, friends is so much more meaningful and special because I have a lot of fans out there, and it’s great to be at home, sleeping in your own bed, do it. homemade food.”

There’s only one event left in the season for Langer to try to catch up with Irwin.

The top 36 players in the points standings are now on their way to the Charles Schwab Cup Championship in Phoenix, which begins November 10th.

A reporter also took the opportunity to ask Langer about Mickelson. In case you didn’t know, Mickelson won the Charles Schwab Cup Championship last year before joining the LIV Golf League and setting off a chain of events we thought we’d never see in professional golf.

Now, it looks like Mickelson has a “renewed” passion for the game.

Langer told Mickelson Media:

“Well, you know, we’re all there for our own reasons and Phil has made his choice. Whether right or wrong, good or bad, I won’t comment on that.

“We will certainly miss him. I think Phil is always an attraction when he plays golf, but I think he made his choice and he won’t be there. There will be other players trying to fill his shoes.”

LIV Golf has not confirmed its 2023-2024 schedule, but will play a total of 14 events globally with a total of US$ 405 million in cash prizes being distributed over eight months.

Mickelson will once again captain the Hy Flyers GC team.

As for Langer, it remains to be seen how many wins he can get before he finally hangs up.

He has played in the PGA Tour Champions since 2007 and has won at least one event in every season since its debut.

The most PGA Tour Champions tournaments he has won in a single season came in 2017 when he won seven times.

Langer won a total of 42 times on the European Tour and three regular PGA Tour events.

He also won the Masters twice.
