Branden Grace makes men's major history

Posted July 24, 2017

Spieth, a few days from his 24th birthday, is already a Masters and U.S. Open champion. "You give me a lot of hard time".

SOUTHPORT, England - Branden Grace became the first player to shoot 62 in a major championship, going 8 under par over the par-70 Royal Birkdale course Saturday to move ahead of all the 63s in the record book.

The 29-year-old South African ripped up the record books by firing eight birdies in a flawless display at Royal Birkdale, taking advantage of benign conditions after overnight rain. "But I made a nice start with the birdie at three and I didn't have too much stress in the round".

They include two players who shot 63 last Open Championship, up the coast in Scotland at Royal Troon, where Henrik Stenson shot 63 on Sunday and Phil Mickelson shot 63 on Thursday with a heartbreaking lip-out on No. 18.

The minimum number of overs required to constitute a match is 20, with the cut-off point for play to start at 4:38pm (1538 GMT). She has scored 226 runs in the tournament so far and if Law of Averages is anything to go by, she is set for a big knock today.

The 29-year-old's brilliant effort took him from four over par to four under, although that was still seven shots behind two-time major victor Spieth, who carded a second bogey-free 65 of the week. I was so in the zone and playing the round so well.

"And I thought if I could make a couple more on the back nine, then it's going to be a great score".

Others did know. The 2015 PGA Championship victor Jason Day, having played five groups before Grace, said, "I think this is a good formula to see maybe the first 62 in a major championship". And I just want to get out there again tomorrow (Sunday) and try to do something similar, just play some good Golf. I knew I was obviously playing really well, and making the turn in five under was pretty special.

"He did it with his ball-striking".

Westgate says there are direct connections available to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas, among other destinations. Green Airport has (nearly) doubled the numbers of non-stops from 17, just a few months ago, to 33 with this announcement.

But the ideal weather held into the afternoon on the north-west English coast, allowing Spieth and the other leading players the chance to build on their strong starting positions. He began the day four over par - he ended it four under, just two shots behind 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth, who had yet to begin his round.

Spieth's second bogey-free round of the three so far put him at 11-under par 199. He was actually unfortunate not to eagle the penultimate hole, and came to the final tee with the pressure on his shoulders.

"He played really, really well no doubt: Eight birdies, no bogeys, 10 out of 14 fairways, 16 out of 18 greens, 28 putts". Eleven and 12 are quite hard to get to.

"I think he did".
