SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Bernhard Langer and Jeff Maggert shared the lead over a bunched field heading into the final round of the U.S. Senior Open.

Langer shot a 2-under 68, and Maggert had a 70 on Saturday. They were at 5-under 205 for the championship at delightful Del Paso Country Club, where conditions cooled off after consecutive days above 100 degrees.

But the competition remained hot, with eight players within a shot of the lead. That includes Tom Watson, Kenny Perry and defending champion Colin Montgomerie.

The 65-year-old Watson, who was tied with Maggert and Peter Fowler through 36 holes, salvaged after a tough round with a 71. Perry shot a 64 to surge into contention, and Montgomerie had a 70.

Fowler shot a 72 and was among six players at 3 under.
