Greetings for Bernhard Langer from fellow tour players

Bernhard Langer, who is the oldest player on the PGA Tour Champions and therefore get’s calles “Dad” by his fellow tour players, got injured in February. Now his friends on the tour send their best wishes to “Dad”.

Recovery wishes for Bernhard Langer

Fred Couples. Padraig Harrington, Ernie Els and Steve Stricker have contacted their friend bernhard langer via video message. They sent the video from Newport Beach, where Langer has won before. “Hopefully you’re on the couch relaxing, I know that’s where I would be”, said Fred Couples and hopes to see Langer back in action soon. Padraig Harrington said he would look up to him and what he does. “Everybody’s learning from you and we miss you out here”, says the Ire. Furthermore Ernie Els sent his best wishes to Langer wishing him a speedy recovery. Last but not least Steve Stricker had a message for “Dad”: “Hi Dad, we sure miss you out here, but I have one question for you. What do you miss the most about being out here on the Champions Tour?” Langer is still due to answer that question. But as the keen golfer he is, Langer probably misses everything what playing professional golf is about.

Achilles Tendon Rupture in February

In February the exceptional German golfer ruptured his Achilles tendon during a training session in Boca Raton, Florida. Following his injury, he underwent surgery directly in Miami. According to sports physician Dr. Tino Lorenz, surgery for an Achilles tendon rupture is one of the more complicated procedures and requires a recovery period of three to six months. Although the downtime for professional athletes can be reduced through improved rehabilitation conditions, it remains questionable whether Bernhard Langer will return to the course one last time on the DP World Tour on his farewell tour. The BMW International Open will take place in Munich at the beginning of July. A full recovery by then seems quite realistic.

After months of recovery: Steve Stricker returns to the Champions Tour

These have been tough months for Steve Stricker. After leading the U.S. Ryder Cup team to victory last year, a mysterious illness struck Stricker. The 55-year-old suddenly suffered from a wide range of symptoms: from cough and sore throat to jaundice and an inflammation of the heart. The consequences of these strains were extreme: Stricker could not eat solid food for a long time and lost about 25 pounds. Now the golfer announced his return to the Champions Tour.

Steve Stricker fought against a mysterious disease outbreak

Steve Stricker has had an illness record to show for it since last fall, and it’s not without its challenges. After his Ryder Cup victory as captain of the U.S. team, things went downhill for the then 54-year-old. A mild cough was followed by a high fever and an allergic reaction to a medication. Shortly thereafter, Stricker was informed of very poor liver values and cardiac arrhythmias. His health deteriorated rapidly, while doctors were at a loss as to the cause of this. Stricker spent eleven days in the hospital, after which he felt “like an 85-year-old man.” His doctors announced he would be in rehabilitation for months.

Comeback on the Champions Tour

After Stricker was unable to eat solid food for a while and going to the bathroom had been a challenge for him, a former golf coach suggested he not return to professional sports and take it easy. For Stricker, that wasn’t an option: “That’s not my style, you know? I like to work at things.” For Stricker, one thing was certain: he would return to the Champions Tour. Next week’s Insperity Invitational is expected to be the time, and the twelve-time PGA Tour winner and seven-time Champions Tour winner announced his participation. In Houston, he will be competing for prize money of more than 2 million euros. We will find out in the coming week how well his comeback is going and whether his body can already withstand the rigors of a professional tournament.

Scandinavia increases their chances at the European Tour this week. What to expect from the PGA, LPGA, and Champions Tours events.

PGA Tour: ZOZO Championship

The PGA Tour makes another stop in Japan right at the beginning of the season for the ZOZO Championship.
The ZOZO Championship is being played in Chiba, Japan at the Accordia Golf Narashino CC at Par 72. The tournament starts on Thursday, 21st of October and ends on Sunday, 24th of October 2021.

With another strong field of participants, we can look forward to top-class golf this week. Narrowing the focus on the Scandinavian golfers, the participation is lower than usually. Only two players will represent the Scandinavians, including Alex Noren and Henrik Norlander, both from Sweden. They did not performed their best last week, but this is a new week with full chances for them to bring Sweden the glory.

Back at it. The tournament will be played on the par 72 Golf Santa Ponsa I, designed by Folco Nardi in 1977, which has hosted European Tour events on six previous occasions. The opening round is on Thursday, 21st of October and the last day is on Sunday, 24th of October 2021. This is not only special for the players, but even the Executive board did not see the time for Golf Santa Ponsa to host an European Tour tournmanet once again. It has been 23 years since last time this course served as venue to a European Tour event, and 10 are the years since the last time Mallorca welcomed one.

The presence of our Scandinavian golfers is getting more and more noticeable, starting off with Jeff Winther from Denmark, who will tee off at 9:15am(GMT+2). Coincidence is that there will be no two Scandinavian players together playing in the same group. The audience must keep an eye in all different holes to stay tuned.

English Empire: The English Professional Golfers Dominate Each Tour

Last week the LPGA took a break, and the LET Tour received all the attention for the ladies tours. On the men’s side, the CJ Cup tournament was a battle between Rory McIlroy and the top American players. McIlory dominated in the end defeating the Americans on their own turf. The participation of the English golfers was a stellar performance all around. They either brought back a shiny trophy or landed on the top leaderboards.

PGA Tour: The CJ Cup

For the second time in a row, the PGA Tour made a guest appearance in the gambling metropolis on the American desert state of Nevada. The Summit Club in Las Vegas was once again the scene of deep shooting this weekend – with the better end for Irishman Rory McIlroy, who celebrated his 20th title on the tour. At the end of the CJ Cup, McIlroy played a round of 66 to keep the onrushing Collin Morikawa at bay.

McIllory’s Ryder Cup teammates also made the cut this weekend in Las Vegas.

Ian Poulter: The Postman delivered four great round of 66-67-67-70 and rounded off the tournament at T18. He started off strong and had 13 birdies overall.

Tyrell Hatton: Hatton also started strong getting an eagle on the 18th hole of round one, but sank in the with a killer double bogey on the last round, hole 13 sending him to 1 under par and next to Poulter at T18.

Matthew Fitzpatrick showed the best performance over four days in Sotogrande, Spain, who brought his skills on the course in an impressively calm manner, exploited the mistakes of the competition and finally bagged his seventh title on the tour. With the 69 Fitzpatrick came into the clubhouse for the third time under par and won by three strokes. “I’m happy to win here,” beamed the winner on the 18th green. “To stay bogey-free is of course something very special. It was great,” summed up Fitzpatrick, who had remained “patient” over 72 holes. James Morrison also gave a grand performance landing him at T4 and scores of 72-73-69-68. Behind him on the leaderboard although not too far down was Englishman Robert Rock who came in at T6. Although Spain was hot with English golfer’s these guys deserve the honorable mentions.
