Horshel also came into the day with two-stroke lead and turned in a steady round in a bid for a his first PGA Tour title and a spot in next week's Masters.

He finished 54 holes at 10-under-par 206 at TPC San Antonio.

Horshel birdied the 14th from five feet out, moving to minus-11, then faltered to a bogey at 15th to slip back to 10-under, where he stayed following three pars to close out the round.

Jim Furyk used a 3-under 69 to forge a second-place tie with Charley Hoffman (70) at 8-under 208.

Sharing fourth place one shot further back were Rory McIlroy (71), Bob Estes (69) and Ryan Palmer (68).
