Bernhard Langer’s wife Vikki Carol is a wife we never thought we’d be covering on this site.
And to be clear, that is not a knock on Ms. Carol. But Bernhard Langer is a name that’s been off the leaderboards for a while, and wasn’t on our radar to rejoin the final pairing on a major Sunday. For those needing a quick refresher, Bernhard Langer is actually a two times Master’s champion winning in 1985 and 1993. In the 1985 season, he was ranked as the number one player in the world.
Now, 1984 is around the time when Bernhard Langer’s wife Vikki Carol comes into the discussion. The couple was married in 1984, right before Bernhard’s rise to the top of the golfing world. Langer originally hails from Germany, but met Vikki in Florida, where they now make their permanent residence in Boca Raton. The couple has four children, Jackie, Stefan, Jason and Christina.
Besides thirty two years of marriage, Bernhard Langer’s wife Vikki Carol has more in common than surface level familial details. In a story on Golf.com, Bernhard talks about his desire to be born again. This intense desire also apparently happened to Vikki, though she was not interviewed for the piece.
That same article notes that Bernhard is affectionately called “the Game’s Man of Mystery,” which we fully concur with. The minimal details about Bernhard Langer’s life extend to Bernhard Langer’s wife Vikki Carol as well. We do know that Bernhard Langer doesn’t like change (his words). In an interview with the Palm Beach Post,
When you look at my life, I still have the same wife; I’ve had the same coach for 35 years, and had the same manager for 35 years. I had one caddy for 24 years. I don’t like change.
Look, when it works, it works. And clearly it works with Vikki Carol. We’ll see if that consistency pays off heading into the final day of the 2016 Masters with Langer holding on to second place.
