Announced: By Bernhard Langer, that he will not defend his title in the Senior PGA Championship next month so that he can attend his son’s high school graduation. Jason Langer, 18, the youngest of four Langer children, attends Calvary Christian Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Young Langer intends to enroll in Penn’s Wharton School of Business and play golf, his father said. Bernhard Langer won’t be the first Hall of Fame golfer to miss a major championship to attend one of his children’s milestone events. Last year, Phil Mickelson skipped the U.S. Open at Erin Hills so that he could attend the high school graduation of his oldest daughter, Amanda.
