DULUTH, Ga. (AP) — Esteban Toledo, a rookie looking for his first win on the Champions Tour, has a one-stroke lead heading into the final round of the Greater Gwinnett Championship.

Toledo, from Mexicali, Mexico, completed his first-round 68 early Saturday before shooting a 2-under 70 in the second round. Bernhard Langer had 66 that left him in a four-way tie for second.

Langer is tied with Roger Chapman, Tom Pernice Jr. and Mark Calcavecchia.

Michael Allen took the first-round lead by completing a 67 early Saturday. He lost the lead in the second round when he called a two-stroke penalty on himself for removing an embedded pine cone on No. 4.

Allen added another double bogey on No. 5 before recovering for a 73 that left him 4 under and two strokes behind the leader.
