Langer ready to defend his Dick's Sporting Goods Open title

ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) Since it became a stop on the Champions Tour eight years ago, the Dick's Sporting Goods Open has not had a repeat champion. Bernhard Langer is ready to change that, even without daughter Christina helping call the shots.

With his daughter as his caddie, Langer rallied to the victory last August, playing all 54 holes at En-Joie Golf Club without a bogey. He closed with a 6-under 66 for a one-stroke victory over Woody Austin and Mark O'Meara, finishing at 16-under 200.

Langer is coming off a runner-up finish on Sunday at the Boeing Classic.
