On this day in 2006 the German team of Bernhard Langer and Marcel Siem won the World Cup. The event took place at the Sandy Lane Resort and Country Club in Barbados. It was the 52nd World Cup and the seventh and last as a World Golf Championship event.
The German pair defeated the Scottish team of Colin Montgomerie and Marc Warren at the first playoff hole.
Trailing by five strokes entering the day, Langer and Marcel Siem shot a 5-under 66 in Sunday’s alternate-shot format to grab a share of the lead, then made par on the first playoff hole to beat Scotland and claim Germany’s second World Cup title.
Langer finished it out with a short putt – moments after Scotland’s Colin Montgomerie pushed his par try from about 4 feet wide of the hole.
Sweden (72) finished third after finishing 15 under and missing the playoff when Carl Petterson’s tricky downhill par putt from 5 feet lipped out at the final hole. South Africa’s team of Rory Sabbatini and Richard Sterne (68) were fourth at 14 under, while Spain (69), Argentina (73) and the United States (69) all tied for fifth at 13 under.
