Perry leads Champions Tour event by a shot in North Carolina

CARY, N.C. (AP) Kenny Perry shot a 4-under 68 on a cool and rainy Saturday to take a one-stroke lead after two rounds of the Champions Tour's SAS Championship.

Perry is at 8 under and is followed by Joe Durant (68). Lee Janzen (68) and first-round leader Bernhard Langer (73) are at 6 under. Another stroke back are Tom Lehman (71) and John Riegger (72).

Perry won this tournament in 2011 and is looking for his ninth win on the tour, including the 3M Championship in August. He won the Charles Schwab Cup in 2013.

Durant has six professional wins for his career, having played on the PGA, Champions and Web.com tours the past few years.

Janzen is an eight-time winner on the PGA Tour. He won the ACE Group Classic in a playoff in February in the 50-and-over event.
