Tom Lehman took the lead in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship and moved closer to becoming the first player to win the season points title for two straight years.

Lehman birdied the final hole for an 8-under 62 and a one-stroke lead over Fred Couples in the Champions Tour's season-ending event. Couples also shot a 62, making two eagles.

Lehman was 17 under after three days in perfect conditions on Desert Mountain's Cochise Course. He entered the week second behind Bernhard Langer in the points competition for a US$1 million annuity. Langer was tied for 10th at 6 under after a 70.

Jay Haas followed his second-round 60 with a 69 to drop two strokes back.
