Kenny Perry falls into tie in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Kenny Perry bogeyed the final hole Saturday to drop into a five-way tie for the lead in the Champions Tour's AT&T Championship.

The Charles Schwab Cup points leader followed his opening 65 with a 71 to match Mike Goodes, Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie and Anders Forsbrand at 8 under. Perry leads Langer in the Schwab Cup by 494 points as the season finishes next week.

Perry didn't help matters when he dumped his tee shot on the par-4 final hole into a bunker. Langer parred the hole in the group in front of Perry.

''I can't shake that guy,'' Perry said. ''He's had a chance to win on Sunday the last 10 weeks. He's been right there, just inching away at me, picking on me, gaining spots here and there. I need to find a way to get it done this weekend.''

Goodes had the round of the day, shooting a 63 on TPC San Antonio's AT&T Canyons Course to jump 43 spots on the leaderboard. Montgomerie had a 68, and Langer and Forsbrand shot 69.

''That's one of the best rounds I've ever played,'' said Goodes, whose lone win on the Champions Tour came four years ago. ''I've got a chance. I love it. That's what we play for.''

Scott Dunlap, who got in the field Tuesday in a qualifying event, was a stroke back along with Kirk Triplett. Dunlap had a 68, and Triplett shot 67.

The top 30 on the money list Sunday will advance to the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship next week at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. The season points winner gets a $1 million annuity.

Montgomerie can't win the annuity, having just gained eligibility for the Champions Tour at his 50th birthday this summer. He's played nine events with a best finish of seventh in August at the 3M Championship.

''I finished 3-3-3, and it's given me a chance to win it,'' Montgomerie said. ''But there's 20 guys who can win. Somebody could do a Mike Goodes and shoot a 63 from the pack, and there's your winner.''
