Bernhard Langer

Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA

Quick Quotes

Southern Hills Country Club

Q. I wanted to ask you a question about Alex. I heard you were very instrumental in his career.

BERNHARD LANGER: Yes. It's normal, I guess. I was much older and he saw me having success and I was really the only German that had success at that point in time. And so he, you know, wanted to be somewhat like me and I've always thought he had a lot of game, I thought he's got a great swing and a fiery mentality, it was just a matter of if he gets his putting stroke together. He hits the ball long and hits it straight, I knew he would make an impact out here. It's just quite a show, winning maybe two majors in a row. That's very impressive. But I knew he had a lot of game.

Q. Is that a case where he comes out here maybe and just gets some confidence rolling?

BERNHARD LANGER: I would think so, with him it was always confidence, he was always sort of a little up and down and he had some great ups, but he had some ups and downs, like we all do. But -- and he had injuries, which he over came, so things weren't always easy for him, but I think he's in a good place, he loves playing out here.

He didn't really have any status, he came out winning the Monday qualifier to get in, won the second Monday qualifying and won the tournament and it's history now.

Q. Is it nice to see another German flag when you're seeing winners of majors?

BERNHARD LANGER: Oh, yeah, it's always it's something about home, right? You know like if you see the American flag, you have special feelings for it. We all pull for each other. There's only a handful of us on the TOUR, maybe less, so, you know, we all know each other and have been battling it out for many years and it's great, I'm very happy for him.
