Goydos, Petrovic tied on top in Champions’ finale
PHOENIX — Paul Goydos and Tim Petrovic each shot 8-under 63 to share the lead in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, leaving points leader Bernhard Langer seven strokes back in the PGA Tour Champions’ season finale.
In sunny, 80-degree conditions at Phoenix Country Club, Langer parred the final nine holes for a 70. The 61-year-old German star opened with a chip-in eagle on the par-5 first but had two frontnine bogeys.
Scott Parel, No. 2 in the standings after winning two weeks ago at Sherwood, made a double bogey on 18 for a 71.
Langer and Parel would take the Cup with a tournament victory, while Miguel Angel Jimenez, Jerry Kelly, Scott McCarron and David Toms would need a win and help from other players. Langer has won the season-long competition four times, three straight from 2014-16. He has two victories this year.
McCarron topped the six contenders for the $1 million annuity, closing with an eagle for a 65. Kelly had a 68, and Jimenez and Toms shot 69.
