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.

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. Perry entered the regular-season finale 494 points ahead of second-place Langer in the race for a $1 million annuity.

Montgomerie is making his ninth tour start after turning 50 in the summer.

"I finished (with scores of) 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."
