Blake leads Champions Tour finale



Defending champion Jay Don Blake birdied three of the final four holes for a 6-under 64 and the first-round lead on Thursday in the Champions Tour's season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship.

The winner last year in San Francisco, the 54-year-old Blake had a one-stroke lead over Gary Hallberg.

Fred Couples, Jay Haas, Olin Browne and Bill Glasson shot 66 on Desert Mountain's Cochise Course in Scottsdale, Arizona. Couples is playing for the first time since a back injury forced him to withdraw from the Boeing Classic in August.

Schwab Cup points leader Bernhard Langer birdied the final two holes for a 69, Tom Lehman shot a 68, and Roger Chapman had a 69. Langer has a 211-point lead over Lehman and 657-point advantage over Chapman in the race for the $1 million annuity.
