Pros hail 'incredible' Bernhard Langer

BERNHARD LANGER | THE MASTERS

Bernhard Langer really got things going on Saturday at The Masters as he produced the second lowest round of the day to rocket up the leaderboard.


And the 58-year-old German, who won his first Green Jacket 31 years ago (1985) and his second three months before Jordan Spieth was born (1993), was hailed by his fellow golfers for his two-under-par round on one of the trickiest days for scoring at Augusta National in years.

Playing partner Jason Day said: "It was really, really impressive to watch what Bernhard did out there today. Just the positions he was in compared to where I was. I had a lot of fun playing with him, I could tell how great he is and how much of a competitor and true professional he is."

Ian Poulter certainly found it tough going as he posted a ten-over-par 82, and was quick to credit Langer for his impeccable score.

But Poulter wasn't the only one, as fellow European stars flooded Twitter with their appreciation for the German, who goes into Sunday with a realistic chance of becoming the oldest major champion in the history of the game - by a decade.
