Ayrshire, Scotland (Sports Network) - Bernhard Langer fired a 6-under 64 on
Thursday to take the first-round lead of The Senior Open Championship at
Langer, a 2-time Masters champion, is one stroke clear in his bid for a second
Senior Open title. When last we saw Langer, he blew a final-round lead at the
U.S. Senior Open.
"It still hurts and it's going to hurt a while," admitted Langer. "That's
golf. Roger (Chapman) played a great round of golf and I can't take that away
from him. It was my tournament to win or to lose, and I just didn't perform
well enough on Sunday."
Mark McNulty posted a 5-under 65 and is alone in second place.
Tom Lehman, Michael Allen, Chien Soon Lu, Dick Mast, David Frost and Jay Don
Blake are knotted in third place at 4-under 66.
