The Northern Irishman, who is chasing his fifth European Tour title, made an eagle on the par-5 eighth hole and had six birdies for an overall 14-under 202.

Overnight leader Rikard Karlberg (72) of Sweden and Matthew Nixon (68) of England are tied for second with 207.

Hoey hasn't finished better than 25th this season on the European Tour, but says ``it was one of those days where everything went my way for the most part.''

Karlberg dropped four shots on his first six holes before recovering with four birdies the rest of the way.
