Maybe age really is just a number.

It certainly seemed that way watching soon-to-be-sexagenarian Bernhard Langer lead the final round of the Constellation Senior Players Championship until the last two holes before being overtaken by 52-year-old whipper-snapper Scott McCarron.

Shame on those of you who imagined the word sexagenarian meant anything other than someone who is in his or her 60s. Langer...
