Day 2 from Sahalee

bernard-langerAfter a 2-hour, 12-minute fog delay this morning, the players were back out on the course and so were we, broadcasting live from Sahalee Country Club for Day 2 of the 2010 U.S. Senior Open.

One of the players charging up the leaderboard today was Bernhard Langer of Germany.

Turning in a second-round 68 to go along with yesterday’s 69, Langer went into the clubhouse at 3-under, just one behind opening-round leader Bruce Vaughan.

Langer stopped by to talk to Bill Swartz and the “Go 2 Guy” Jim Moore, and had a lot to say regarding the challenging setup of the course.

“It’s not easy to go low here. … There’s just not too many birdie chances, and lots of bogey chances, or worse. It’s just a tough test from the very beginning to the end. And I don’t think 3-under is going to be that far away from the leaders at the end of the day.”

Adding to the natural difficulty of the course this week has been something that you don’t often hear about: jet-lag. After wrapping up the British Senior Open in Carnoustie, Scotland on Sunday, many of the players hopped on a flight after just a few hours of sleep in order to arrive in Seattle on Monday.

Earlier this week, Langer, winner of last week’s British Senior Open, called the back-to-back scheduling of majors “terrible.” He seemed to be changing his tune a bit this afternoon.

“Well it’s tiring, … it’s not easy. But, you know, we are playing the U.S. Senior Open, so it’s one of the special events every year. And if you can’t get keyed up for that, you never will.”

One of the things that might be helping fuel Langer thru the fatigue is the joy of having his son, Stefan, as his caddy.

“Oh, it always is fun to have my son caddying for me. He caddied 10 times last year. We won three tournaments out of those 10, so we have a pretty good record.”

The Langers will obviously be looking to improve upon that record this weekend.
