Evansville,  IN (Sports Network) – Billy Hurley III carded his second  straight 68  on Saturday to  remain two clear of the field after 54 holes of the  United Leasing Championship.

Hurley  ended three rounds at 11-under-par 205. He has no top-10 finishes  this season and is searching for his first tour victory.

Joe Affrunti also shot 68 to end two back at minus-9. He bogeyed the final  two holes to cost himself a share of the lead.

Adam  Hadwin  had six birdies in  the first 12 holes  to take the lead, but  he stumbled  to a double-bogey at the 14th. Hadwin birdied the last for a  5-under 67. He ended three rounds at 8-under-par 208.

Alex Cejka (69) is alone in fourth at minus-7, while Ben Martin (69) and  Kevin Tway (71) are one shot back at 6-under 210 at Victoria National Golf Club.

Hurley  birdied  the second  to remain  two clear of  Affrunti. Hurley ran  off seven straight pars from the third to let Hadwin and Affrunti back into it.

“I  battled that  internally a little bit  because I didn’t feel I was  playing poorly,”  said  Hurley of falling behind  Affrunti. “I knew I was  playing well and  I knew  I was hitting a lot of  good shots so I knew it would  come and it did.”

Hadwin,  who teed off  six groups ahead of Hurley and Affrunti, got going  with birdies  at  two and four.  He flew into  a share of  the lead at minus-8  with three consecutive birdies from the eighth.

Affrunti moved to 8-under with birdies at two, six and seven.

Hadwin  briefly took the  lead with a birdie at the 12th, but he faltered to  a double bogey at the 14th. Affrunti birdied three in a row from the ninth to be  the first to get to minus-11.

“Five  in six  holes? I had no  clue. When you’re out there playing it’s  about trying to make some more birdies,” said Affrunti of his run of five  birdies in a  6-hole span from  the sixth. “You’re swinging it good and there’s  no reason to pull off. You just go after it and see how many you can make.”

Hurley joined him at minus-11 with three consecutive birdies from the 10th.

There  was a 2-shot  swing at the par-4 14th. Hurley rolled in a birdie try  to move  to 12-under,  while Affrunti  stumbled to  a bogey  to dip  to  minus-10. Affrunti bounced back with a birdie on No. 15 to get within one.

Hurley dipped into a share of the lead as he bogeyed the par-3 16th. He  parred the last two to end at 11-under.

Affrunti  stumbled to bogeys on the final two holes to finish two back.  Hadwin got  one stroke back with a birdie at the last. That gave him the low  round of the day with his 67.

NOTES: Hurley owns the 54-hole lead for the first time on the Web.com Tour  … Of the top six players on the leaderboard, none have won on tour …  Defending champion  Peter Tomasulo dropped four strokes in the last two holes,  but still shot  2-under 70,  which helped him climb 19  spots into a share of  24th at 2- under-par 214.
