Jay Haas shoots 62 to take Champions Tour lead

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Jay Haas birdied four of the last six holes for an 8-under 62 and a four-stroke lead in the Champions Tour's Charles Schwab Cup Championship.

The 60-year-old Haas won two weeks ago in North Carolina to become the 18th player to win a Champions Tour event at 60 or older. He has 17 victories on the 50-and-over tour after winning nine times on the PGA Tour.

Haas had a 12-under 128 total on Desert Mountain's Cochise Course.

First-round leader Tom Pernice Jr. was second after a 67.

Kenny Perry was third at 6 under after a 68.

Fred Couples, the winner last year at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, was 5 under along with Michael Allen and Olin Browne. Couples shot 64, Allen 66, and Browne 67.
