Watson shot in the 60s in three of his four rounds at the Greenbrier but tied for 38th after a 72 on Saturday. The 2014 Ryder Cup captain has two top-10 finishes in six Champions Tour events.

"Hot and cold," Watson said, describing his game this year. "I struggled yesterday and today in practice rounds here. Then I got on the practice tee, and at the end of the session I started hitting the ball well again. Whether it's going to work on the golf course tomorrow is anybody's guess, but at least it's on the upswing. If I can keep the ball on the fairway and get there on Sunday, that's all I'm trying to get to."

Langer, the Champions Tour money leader, is trying to regain the form that helped him win twice in the spring. Langer, who won the U.S. Senior Open in 2010 and tied for second last year, limited his practice to two nine-hole rounds because of the heat and humidity. He said the rough is as thick as "anywhere in the world," and even if there's no wind a golfer could be in contention shooting par.

"I can't see too many 64s, 65s out here," he said. "Even par is never a bad score in a U.S. Senior Open. If someone gets really hot, because the greens might not get to the speed where they want them because of the heat, there might be a chance a couple guys finish under par."
