AT&T CHAMPIONSHIP


BERNHARD LANGER CAN BE A TOUGH GUY to beat in a playoff, but David Frost proved up to the job at last year’s AT&T Championship. The South African made a birdie on the second hole of their playoff for the win. It capped a performance that saw him make up six strokes in the final round. Frost and Langer each shot 6-under 66 to finish at 8-under 208 on TPC San Antonio’s AT&T Canyons Course. “I wasn’t planning on a playoff,” said Frost, 53, who teamed with Michael Allen to win the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf in April of 2012. The win was his third on the Champions Tour, to go with his 10 career wins on the PGA TOUR.


“It was only when I hit it close on 13 (for an eventual birdie) did I think that it was just Bernhard and I with a chance to win.”


CALCAVECCHIA STRUGGLED ON SUNDAY


Second-round leader Mark Calcavecchia, who had a 74, finished two strokes back after making four bogeys in the first 11 holes. “I putted badly on the front,” Calcavecchia said. “I didn’t hit it very good. I knew it would be tough after yesterday, when I hit those bad drives on two holes late in the round. I just didn’t feel comfortable.” The key for Frost may have been the 30-foot putt he made to save par on the 14th hole. “He (Frost) had some unbelievable up-and- downs today,” Langer said. “The par he made on 14 was unbelievable. He had three

or four other ones. His putter was hot. He hit a few loose shots but always got away with it.”


On the final hole of regulation play, Langer left his approach in a deep bunker. He played out to six feet and made the putt while Frost missed a 25-footer for birdie, made his par, and the playoff was on. ■

Working with PGA TOUR player/consultant Bruce Lietzke, Pete Dye designed the par-72 AT&T Canyons Course in a traditional


style, taking


beautiful advantage of the rolling terrain. “Our goal was crafting a course that fits


harmoniously with its surroundings, so we took full advantage of the dramatic vistas, indigenous flora and beautiful rolling terrain,” said Dye. The course features generous fairways, stands of oak and cedar trees, and panoramic views of the nearby Cibolo Canyons. Its sister course, the AT&T Oaks course designed by Greg Norman and Sergio Garcia, hosts the PGA TOUR’s Valero Texas Open.
