In a breath taking conclusion to his remarkable and record-setting season, Bernhard Langer, the two-time Masters champion, clinched victory at the PNC Championship alongside his son Jason. The duo braved 30 mph winds to post an impressive 13-under 59 on Sunday, securing a two-shot win in Orlando, Florida.

Facing a three-shot deficit early in the tournament, Langer and his son orchestrated a stunning comeback notching an astonishing 10 birdies in 11 holes, showcasing their exceptional synergy on the golf course. This victory marked Langer's fifth PNC Championship win, a feat that ties the tournament record, with three victories achieved alongside Jason and two with his older son Stefan. Notably, only Raymond Floyd shares the distinction of winning five titles in this championship.



Among the notable contenders were Tiger Woods and his 14-year-old son Charlie, who finished tied for fifth after an impressive round of 61. A memorable moment unfolded on the ninth hole when Charlie chipped in for birdie, emulating his father's signature celebration, leaving spectators in awe.

Securing the runner-up position were David Duval and his son Brady, who concluded their round with a thrilling birdie-eagle finish.

Langer, at 66 years old, has not only added another remarkable victory to his illustrious career but also set the tone for a memorable conclusion to the PNC Championship. Earlier in the year, he made headlines by setting the PGA TOUR Champions record with his 46th career victory.

As the wind swept across the course, Langer's triumphant performance alongside his son adds another chapter to their family legacy in golf, creating a memorable and heart warming spectacle in the world of professional golf.
