Langer, Lehman top Champions Tour finale



SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Bernhard Langer and Tom Lehman are too busy trying to win the Champions Tour finale to get caught up in points title scenarios.

They do know that if they win the tournament, they will win the Charles Schwab Cup.

Langer leads the standings for the $1 million annuity, 211 points ahead of Lehman. Roger Chapman is third, 657 behind Langer. The winner of the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, set to open Thursday at Desert Mountain, will get 880 points.

Fred Couples is making his first start since a back injury forced him to withdraw during the first round of the Boeing Classic in August.
