Langer is the first player in Champions Tour history to win the Jack Nicklaus Trophy and the Arnold Palmer Award, as the Tour’s leading money-winner, for a third consecutive year.
'Winning five times and two majors and also winning far more Charles Schwab Cup points than I had won the first two years – it’s been a wonderful ride on the Champions Tour these last three years,' said Langer, who won the 2010 Charles Schwab Cup. 'To be voted Player of the Year three years in a row is an amazing thing. I’ve been very blessed to be healthy and to be playing that well. I had expected to do well but not that well. This was probably my best year since I’ve been on the Champions Tour.'
