Bernhard Langer and Brandt Jobe, who have won three of the last five PGA Tour Champions events, began to separate themselves from the field through three rounds of the Constellation Senior Players Championship.

Langer, seeking a fourth straight victory in this event, shot a six-under par 66 at Caves Valley Golf Club on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead over Jobe. Langer won the Regions Tradition and KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship back to back in May.

Jobe, who won the Principal Charity Classic three weeks ago, shot a seven-under par 65 despite consecutive bogeys late in the round that dropped him from the lead.

Scott McCarron and Corey Pavin, meanwhile, are tied for third place, six strokes behind Langer, five behind Jobe.
