SAN ANTONIO, Texas -

Billy Horschel held off an experienced leaderboard to shoot 2-under 70 and take a two-shot lead entering the final round of the Texas Open.
   
Horschel, who also held the lead after the second round, battled through the gusting San Antonio wind on Saturday to reach 10 under overall - two shots ahead of Jim Furyk and Charley Hoffman.
   
The Florida native was second at last week's Houston Open and extended his PGA Tour-best streak of consecutive made cuts to 21 this week.
   
Rory McIlroy shot a 1-under 71 and is four shots back. McIlroy tied for the low round on Friday with a 67, but he was inconsistent off the tee on Saturday and had four birdies and three bogeys.
