SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Kenny Perry and Tom Pernice Jr. shared the lead Saturday in the Champions Tour's season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship, taking advantage of Jay Haas' third-round collapse.

Perry shot a 2-under 68, and Pernice had a 70 to finish at 8-under 202 on Desert Mountain's Cochise Course.

The 60-year-old Haas, four strokes ahead after opening with rounds of 66 and 62 to break the tour record for consecutive rounds of par or better at 38, had a 75 to fall a shot behind. He had a double bogey, six bogeys and three birdies.

Fred Couples and Colin Montgomerie were tied for fourth at 6 under. Couples followed his second-round 64 with a 69, and Montgomerie had a 66.

Bernhard Langer was tied for 10th at 4 under after a 70. Langer won the Charles Schwab Cup points title last week, has a tour-high five victories - two of them majors - and also has wrapped up the season money title with $2,916,189.
