Bernhard Langer keeps Champions Tour lead

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Bernhard Langer maintained a two-stroke lead Saturday in the Champions Tour's Toshiba Classic, making four birdies in a late five-hole stretch for 5-under 66.

Langer, the 2008 winner, was 13-under 129 at Newport Beach Country Club. Kenny Perry (65) and Chien Soon Lu (66) were tied for second. Fred Couples (67), Scott Dunlap (64), Esteban Toledo (65) and Jeff Hart (67) were 10 under.

One of Langer's back-nine birdies came after he hit his son Jason in the gallery on his approach shot. Langer chipped to 10 feet and made the putt.

Tom Watson made a 30-foot eagle putt on the final hole for 8-under 63, tied for the best round of the day with Peter Senior. It was the first time on the Champions Tour that Watson, 64, had bettered his age. He was at 8 under overall.
