Bernhard Langer returns from Achilles tear next week

bernhard langer

World Golf Hall of Famer Bernhard Langer will return to action next week for the first time since tearing an Achilles tendon in February.

The PGA’s Champions Tour announced Friday that the 66-year-old German will compete in the Insperity Invitational from May 3-5 in The Woodlands, Texas, an event he has won four times.

“This tournament has a special place in my heart,” Langer said. “It was my first victory out here on the PGA TOUR Champions in 2007, and it is just a fantastic event all around. I am looking forward to making my return to competition in The Woodlands.”

Langer underwent surgery on Feb. 2 to repair the Achilles injury sustained while playing pickleball.

Langer won the U.S. Senior Open and the Chubb Classic last year to give him a record 46 career Champions Tour victories, besting Hale Irwin’s 45. Since joining the tour in 2007, he has won 12 senior major tournaments.

Langer is a six-time winner of the senior tour’s Charles Schwab Cup championship, most recently in 2021. He won three times on the PGA Tour, including twice at the Masters in 1985 and 1993.
