Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Bernhard Langer shot a final round 66 (-6) and finished the three-day tournament at 16-under to win the 2014 Dick's Sporting Goods Open.

Langer did not bogey a hole during the entire tournament, a credit to his consistency all season long.

"It was probably my putting was really good," said Langer. "My short putts especially. I made a lot of five to 12 footers, some for par, some for birdie, and that just kept the momentum going."

The win marks his 23rd career Champions Tour victory, and fifth on the tour this year. He's won more than a quarter of the the tournaments on the tour this season, which has placed him on top of the Charles Schwab Cup Standings.

"I've just found a bit of confidence at the very beginning of the year, won the very first one and my swing is pretty consistent too," said Langer afterward. "I've been working with the same coach for almost 40 years now and I just have it in the groove several times. It has been an amazing year, five wins already and I'm not done yet. I just sometimes have to pinch myself."

To make things even more special this week, Langer's daughter, Christina, was on the bag. The two had teamed up before, but this was his first win with Christina as his caddy. It's one of the memories he said he will take away from his week in Endicott.

"Probably having my daughter with me on the bag and having my son watch me the last two days," he said. "It doesn't happen very often anymore. She's in college, my son is working in New York, so it's very far in between that I see them and to have her with me the whole week was just pretty amazing."

Woody Austin and Mark O'Meara finished tied for second at 15-under.

Kevin Sutherland, who entered the final round with the lead after shooting a Champions Tour record 59 (13-under) in round two, shot a 74 (+2) Sunday and finished in a tie for seventh.
