THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) Tom Pernice Jr. had four straight birdies and shot an 8-under 64 on Saturday for a share of the PowerShares QQQ Championship lead with Brandt Jobe.

Jobe had a 66 to match Pernice at 11-under 133 at Sherwood in the PGA Tour Champions' playoff opener.

Pernice began the run on the par-5 11th and also birdied the par-3 12th, par-5 13th and par-4 14th. The four-time tour winner birdied another par 5 on 16 and closed with two pars.

Jobe had eight birdies and two bogeys.

First-round leader Colin Montgomerie (69) was a stroke back along with Rocco Mediate (65) and Olin Browne (66). Mediate played alongside Pernice, and matched him with birdies on Nos. 11-14.

Fred Couples was tied for 22nd at 4 under after a 72 in in his first tournament in eight months. The 57-year-old Couples was sidelined by a chronic back injury.
