Langer to play after Katayama withdraws for injury
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- Bernhard Langer will play in his 27th British Open.
The German got a spot Monday when Shingo Katayama of Japan withdrew because of an injury.
Langer tied for second at the Open in 1981 and '84, and he's been third four times. The two-time Masters champion was captain of Europe's winning Ryder Cup team last year.
