The 22-year-old Swede fired a flawless 66, which included a tremendous eagle from 75 feet on the 11th and four birdies, to get to sixteen-under-par and overtake halfway leader Jason Scrivener at the top.
“A very solid day again. I really found my swing yesterday on the range and this morning was a good warm-up, a bit stressed, but that is pretty much a good thing to me," said Grant.
"I got out there and hit good drives, I think I hit pretty much every fairway, on the greens and solid putting.
“I think I practised throughout all my years playing as an amateur being in the same situation of being nervous and knowing how to handle that and get the best out of myself."
Australian Scrivener had led for most of the day and found himself three shots clear at the turn, but he missed good chances to extend his advantage and a double bogey at the short 16th saw him fall from the summit.
A closing birdie handed Scrivener solo second spot on fourteen-under, while home hero and tournament co-host Henrik Stenson was alone in third another shot further back.
Grant only entered the paid ranks last year but is already a proven winner, having followed up her maiden Ladies European Tour victory at the Joburg Ladies Open in March with a second title at the Mithra Belgian Ladies Open two weeks ago.
