Defending champion Hatton will hope he doesn't lose his way as in the British Masters
Ireland's Paul Dunne was then at 11 under with former world number one Luke Donald and fellow Englishman Ross Fisher a further shot back but all eyes will be on Hatton when he tees off on Sunday.
The Englishman equalled the course record at the home of golf a year ago on his way to a four-shot victory and a first European Tour title, and a bogey-free 65 put him in a commanding position to defend his crown. "To win at the home of golf once is incredible but to do it again and defend would be a dream come true".
Runner-up Fisher also wrote his name in to the history books on the final day at St. Andrews as he broke the Old Course record with a blistering round of 11 under par 61.
Frenchman Victor Dubuisson stormed his way to third place in recording a 63 for 17-under par and his best finish in 11 months since tying for third at the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa. However, a superb chip in for par after taking a drop saw him start a golden run on the front nine as he went on to birdie the next four holes to open up a seven-shot lead over the field.
The world number 29 began the final day at the Old Course five ahead and shot a six-under 66 to win on 24 under.
It caps a remarkable return to form for the Marlow man after he made just two of the nine cuts between the Masters Tournament in Augusta and the US PGA Championship.
But, needing to hole his eagle putt for the 59, Fisher left his second a few feet short of the hole.
"And they've been very quiet lately, so my suspicions are up that I think the discussions are going on".
Golf-wise, he made great strides and won five collegiate events during his four years in America. At the same time, though, we surely don't want to see great courses being constantly overpowered and that, I'm afraid, is exactly what is happening on the Old Course in particular these days. "When you get St. Andrews on a day like this, it's definitely bearable, but you still have to hit the shots". "It's absolutely brilliant to win the Team Championship for a third time".
Donaldson, who pocketed a cheque for 50,000 U.S. dollars, had nine birdies and an 18th hole eagle on his card for a 72 hole score of 40-under-par, winning by three from Robert Rock and Westlife singer Brian McFadden, Victor Dubuisson and Shantanu Narayen, who had a hole-in-one in round three, and Yikeun Chang and Erwee Botha.

Southgate: England fans may hold Euro '96 against me
England's performance on Thursday was disjointed, lacklustre and lacked any semblance of creativity - and that's being kind. Joachim Low's men have secured their spot in Russian Federation next year by winning all their nine qualifiers.
