BLAINE, Minn. (AP) Tuesday qualifier Marco Dawson shot a 9-under 63 on Friday to take the lead in the Champions Tour's 3M Championship, leaving Bernhard Langer a stroke back five days after the German star's record-breaking victory in the Senior British Open.

Dawson, playing the back nine first at TPC Twin Cities, birdied three of his first four holes and chipped in for eagle on No. 18. After a birdie on the par-5 third hole, he birdied three of his final four holes.

Looking for his first tour victory, Dawson has three top-10 finishes in eight starts this year, including a tie for fifth three weeks ago in the U.S. Senior Open. He tied for 39th in the Senior British Open.
