CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Defending champion Jeff Maggert shot his second straight 7-under 63 on Saturday to take a three-stroke lead in the PGA Tour Champions' Shaw Charity Classic.

The 52-year-old Maggert parred the final three holes after making eight birdies and a bogey on the first 15 at Canyon Meadows. The three-time PGA Tour winner has five victories on the 50-and-over tour. He won four times last year, the first two majors in the Regions Tradition and U.S. Senior Open.

Paraguay's Carlos Franco was second, also shooting 63.

Bernhard Langer was third at 10 under after his second 65. The 59-year-old German star won the Boeing Classic last week in Washington for his fourth victory of the year and 29th overall on tour.

Michael Allen (64) and Fred Funk (66) were 9 under.

Tom Watson followed his opening 65 with a 72 to drop into a tie for 38th at 3 under. On Friday, Watson broke his age for the fourth time on the tour. He will be 67 on Sunday.
