Scottsdale, AZ (Sports Network) - Tom Lehman fired an 8-under 62 on Saturday to secure the lead after three rounds of the Charles Schwab Cup Championship.

Lehman, who started the day five shots behind overnight leader Jay Haas, now sits at 17-under 193. He is currently second in the Charles Schwab Cup standings and can become the first-ever golfer to secure the Cup in consecutive years with a win on Sunday.

Fred Couples is alone in second place at 16-under. He carded a pair of eagles en route to a third-round 62 and appears to have ably recovered from a back injury which had kept him out since late August.

Haas, coming off a career-best and course-record 60 at the Cochise Course at Desert Mountain Club, shot 69 to fall into third place at 15-under, while defending champion and first-round leader Jay Don Blake (65) is in fourth at 10-under.
