SHANGHAI, China (AP) — France's Alexander Levy had five straight birdies in the middle of his round and finished with a 7-under 65 to take the lead in the BMW Masters on Thursday.

Levy began the birdie run on the par-4 ninth on Lake Malaren's Masters Course. He won the Volvo China Open in Shenzhen in April for his first European Tour title and took the rain-shortened Portugal Masters this month, becoming the first Frenchman to win two events in a single season on the European Tour.

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (AP) — Tom Pernice Jr. shot a 5-under 65 on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead over Bernhard Langer and three others in the Champions Tour's Charles Schwab Cup Championship.

"I drove the ball straight today, kept it in play," Pernice said. "I think that's important. If you do that here, you're going to have some good opportunities."

The 55-year-old Pernice won the Principal Charity Classic in Iowa in June for his third career victory on the 50-and-older tour. He rebounded from a bogey on the par-3 17th with a birdie on the par-5 18th on Desert Mountain's Cochise Course.
