Starting at the tenth, the Belfast man bogeyed the 11th - his second hole - but soon made amends with birdies at 14 and 15.
The 2011 Links Champion then went on to pick up further shots at the first, fourth, fifth and seventh holes to leave him in with a chance of reclaiming the crown on Sunday's final round.
2011 Open Champion Darren Clarke is a shot further back after he completed a flawless third round containing six birdies on his way to carding a 66, leaving him on 14-under.
However, Gareth Maybin looks set to miss the cut by a shot after his 1-under round of 71 left him on 8-under for the tournament.
American Peter Uhlein leads the field on 20-under.
