Bernhard Langer to play in Sanford International

Aug. 5, 2019

Two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer will play in the 2019 Sanford International.

The German golfer has 113 professional wins during his 45-year career, including the 1985 and 1993 Masters.

The Sanford International Presented by Cambria is Sept. 16-22 at Minnehaha Country Club. It’s part of the PGA Tour Champions, which Langer has dominated with 40 tournament wins and a record 11 senior major championships.

“There’s not a better combination of person and golfer on the tour than Bernhard Langer,” said Greg Conrad, tournament director of the Sanford International.

“Bernhard’s humanitarianism and integrity are second to none, and we are excited to welcome him to Sioux Falls to play in the Sanford International this fall.”

Langer won the Payne Stewart Award last year. The award is given annually in memory of Payne Stewart to a player whose values align with the character, charity and sportsmanship that the professional golfer showed. Stewart died in a plane crash in South Dakota in 1999.

Other committed players for the Sanford International include 1997 PGA Championship winner and two-time Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III and PGA Tour Champion golfers Mark Calcavecchia and John Harris.

Record 18-time major champion Jack Nicklaus and two-time PGA Championship winner Dave Stockton will be among those participating in an exhibition golf event during the Sanford International on Sept. 21.
