Athens, GA (Sports Network) - South African Tyrone van Aswegen fired a six- under 65 on Saturday to take the third-round lead of the Stadion Classic at UGA.

Van Aswegen finished 54 holes at 13-under 200 and is one stroke clear at the University of Georgia Golf Club.

Van Aswegen is winless on the Nationwide Tour and if he's going to break through on Sunday, he will have to best a tightly bunched leaderboard. Nine players are within three shots of his lead.

Second-round co-leader Billy Horschel shot a two-under 69 and is tied for second place with Bio Kim (64) and former PGA Tour player Woody Austin (66). The trio finished at 12-under 201.

Jim Herman, the other leader after 36 holes, had a one-under 70 on Saturday and shares fifth with Shawn Stefani (66) and Cliff Kresge (68) at 11-under par.

Two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen (66), last week's South Georgia Classic winner Luke List (70) and Brandon Brown (69) are tied for eighth at minus-10.
