Perry Makes Run at Senior Players

PITTSBURGH -- Bernhard Langer moved closer to his first Senior Players Championship victory Saturday, shooting a 4-under 66 in the third round to stay in front of hard-charging Kenny Perry.

Langer was at 15-under 195 through 54 holes of the third major on the Champions Tour schedule, where he has five top- 10 finishes but no victories. The two-time Masters champion shook off a slow start with a 4-under 31 on the back nine.

Perry, trying to join Arnold Palmer as the only player to win the Senior Players in consecutive years, briefly took the lead midway through the round before settling for a 65 that left him three strokes behind Langer.

Russ Cochran, Joe Durant and Bill Glasson were four back. Cochran had a 63, the low round of the day at Fox Chapel.
