TimberTech Championship

Location & Course Information

Boca Raton, Fla.

The Old Course at Broken Sound

Joe Lee designed The Old Course at Broken Sound in 1978. Gene Bates, with help from World Golf Hall of Fame member Johnny Miller, updated the layout in 2004 to make it more playable and yet more challenging with the addition of water hazards and strategic bunkering along the undulating fairways. The course winds through oaks and pine trees, giving it a “Piney Woods” North Carolina feel that is popular with members and PGA TOUR Champions players alike. It has been home to the event since 2007.

Boca Raton resident Bernhard Langer pulled away from the field in the final round and set a tournament scoring record with a 19-under 197 total. The 61-year-old led by one after rounds of 64-68, then birdied five of the first seven holes on Sunday to extend the margin to five. “It was an amazing start. One of my best starts ever, honestly,” said Langer, who claimed his 39th PGA TOUR Champions victory.

Langer added two more birdies the rest of the way in shooting a 65 to win by five strokes, a tournament-record victory margin. He didn’t have a bogey in the final round, and made only one during the tournament, that coming on the 17th hole of the second round. Langer, who also won in 2010, became the first multiple winner of the 13-year-old event, which this year switches to a fall date and joins the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs.
