"Every time you’re leading it’s the best position to be in. I feel like I've been playing well - even at the beginning of the year when I was missing cuts I felt like the game was still there," said the Spaniard.
"Maybe a couple more putts dropped the last few days and that makes it a good score.
"It's my caddie’s first week with me, I've been struggling trying to enjoy myself on the golf course and I’m trying to do that at the moment. I'm just trying not to worry too much about it. I guess I was putting too much pressure on myself trying to make things work when everything was actually working. I was trying to be too perfect on every part of my game.
"I feel like my game is coming together, I just needed to putt a little better. I wasn’t too worried about it, I just needed to let it flow."
Tied in second place at 9-under are Germany's Nick Bachem (67), Japan's Ryo Hisatsune (63) and South Africa's Jayden Schaper (65).
South African Dylan Mostert who shared the overnight lead closed with a 72 for a share of 14th place at 6-under.
