Luiten stormed to the top of the leaderboard thanks to a front nine of 31, which moved him to 10 under par, a two-shot lead over Austrian Bernd Wiesberger.
"I'm happy, 66 is good," said the 28-year-old Luiten, who is currently just outside the automatic qualifying places for Paul McGinley's European team which will defend the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.
"It could have been a bit lower as I was playing really well, especially the first 12 holes, but it's been a really good day. I've been playing consistently and hitting some good shots and making some good putts.
"All I can do is focus on this tournament now and playing here, next week is a new week. I am in a good position so I just want to finish it off tomorrow and see if we can win again here.
"I know Bernd is a good player so it will be a very good battle and there are a few more guys behind who are not out of it yet. It's going to be an interesting day."
