SAN MARTIN, Calif. -- Australia's Nick O'Hern shot a 9-under 62 on Thursday to take a three-stroke lead over European Ryder Cup player Nicolas Colsaerts, Jhonattan Vegas and Derek Ernst in the Frys.com Open.

O'Hern had eight birdies in an 11-hole stretch and capped the bogey-free round with a birdie on the par-5 ninth hole at CordeValle Golf Club. He's winless on the PGA Tour.

Colsaerts is trying to earn a PGA Tour card. As a special temporary member, he needs to finish the equivalent of 125th on the money list to earn a full 2013 card. The Belgian player has earned $652,886, enough now for the 120th spot.

Charles Howell III, John Mallinger, Jonas Blixt, Gary Woodland and Greg Owen shot 66. British Open champion Ernie Els opened with a 71 in the Fall Series event.
