There were no patrons at the 2020 Masters Tournament, although Bernhard Langer occasionally felt like a spectator.

The 63-year-old played the weekend in groupings that included Rory McIlroy and Bryson DeChambeau, and admitted to watching “in awe” of the two bombers. Langer finished the Masters at 3-under par.

“Every once in a while I had to tell myself, ‘Stop watching and play your game. Focus on what you want to do,’” Langer said. “I got to experience the longest guys in the world right now, and it's quite amazing.”

Langer played Augusta National Golf Club two strokes lower than the pre-tournament favorite on Sunday, shooting 71 to DeChambeau’s 73. Langer relied on six hybrids and two 3-woods into par 4s on Sunday, while DeChambeau drove the par-4 third green.

Bryson three-putted No. 3 for par, and Langer matched that score.

“If I can make a few putts, I know I can shoot somewhere around par or even under,” Langer said. “That's usually good enough to hang in there. If my putter goes bad, then I'm struggling.”

Langer made history this November, surpassing Tommy Aaron as the oldest player to make the cut at the Masters. The two-time champion here has played the weekend in six of his last eight trips to Augusta National.

“I think I have a few more in there,” Langer said. “You never know. I know how to play this golf course and I have to play my angles and rely on my short game. With me it's really all the putter.”

Langer opened this week with 68, his first round in the 60s since the final round of 2014. DeChambeau praised his playing partner and admitted to admiring the 63-year-old.

“Even though I'm bombing it by him, he's still playing better than me,” DeChambeau said. “That's the cool part about the game of golf. You can shoot a score whatever way you want, and he's able to do it still at his age.”

DeChambeau added: “He’s an unbelievable iron player. He grinds over everything.”
