Keeping Score

Bernhard Langer seeks to extend Masters streak

2-time Masters champion has made 3 consecutive cuts at Augusta National since having turned 60

3: Number of consecutive cuts that Bernhard Langer has made at the Masters since the German, now 63, turned 60. Langer, a two-time Masters champion, tied for 29th last year after a T-62 in 2019 and a T-38 in 2018, the year after he turned 60. Langer won the green jacket in 1985 and 1993, and he finished among the top 10 as recently as 2014, when he tied for eighth. In the first round last year, Langer shot 4-under 68, his best score at Augusta National since a third-round 68 in 2001, when he ultimately finished T-6. Langer will be paired with American Will Zalatoris and English amateur Joe Long at 8:48 a.m. EDT Thursday in the fifth group of the day (tee times).
