"It was a really nice round," said the Finn. "I putted of course really good, made some longer ones - I haven't made them the last couple of weeks, so it's nice to get it rolling.
"Oli [Bekker] played a really good round as well, so we enjoyed the day. I feel like I found the rhythm and the speed for the greens and that was the key to the day.
"Just keep grinding, hitting good shots and just give those opportunities. I still hit the ball really well so just keep making those ones."
South African Oliver Bekker lies in second place after closing with a bogey-free 64 followed by France's Pierre Pineau in third place at 7-under.
"That was a good round," said Pineau. "That was very tricky with the wind, a bit of rain on a few holes.
"I'm very happy with the way I hit my tee shots, put my chips close and holed some putts.
"I'm just looking to focus on me and not the leaderboard, just play golf."
