CARY, N.C. — Bernhard Langer rallied to win the SAS Championship on Sunday to take the lead in the Charles Schwab Cup points race, shooting a 9-under 63 to beat Jay Don Blake by two strokes.

Four shots back entering the round, Langer birdied the final two holes to finish at 13-under 203 at Prestonwood Country Club. The German star has two victories this year and 16 overall on the 50-and-over tour.

Blake closed with a 68. He needed a birdie on the par-4 18th to force a playoff, but hit a tree with his drive and bogeyed the hole. Mark Wiebe also shot 68 to finish third at 10 under.

Langer took a 69-point lead over Tom Lehman in the points race for a $1 million annuity. Lehman skipped the tournament. The bogey-free 63 was the best final round by a winner in the history of the tournament.

The start of play was delayed 90 minutes because of rain.
