Bernhard Langer says:

“I am delighted to receive this honor and am impressed by what has been created here. I have a lot in common with the G-Class,” said Langer.

“It already existed when I first competed here [at the Masters] in 1982. Since then, we’ve both stayed true to ourselves, while at the same time always moving with the times and constantly evolving.”
