Branden Grace sets major championship record with 62 at British Open

"You never know what's going to happen tomorrow but I figure I'm going to need to shoot, probably, nine under."To get to 12 under, I think that would be a decent number to sit in the clubhouse at". Afterall, his 63 in the final round of the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont stood as the gold standard of major golf scores for what feels like forever.

Branden Grace finished his third round at The Open Championship in just 62 strokes, becoming the first man to ever shoot a 62 at a major championship.

Ten players had previously posted a round of 63 in an Open, with Phil Mickelson and eventual victor Henrik Stenson both posting that number during last year's tournament at Royal Troon. "I was so in the zone and playing the round so well", Grace said.

We'll let Michael Scott take it from here.

The lowest-ever score in a major is 61, shot by Korea's Kim Hyo-Joo in the 2014 Evian Championship.

Another gain followed on the penultimate hole, as Grace hit the par-five 17th in two, and he held his nerve to save par on the 18th after his approach had slipped over the back of the green. He admitted leaving "a couple out there" but conceded he made up for missed opportunities with "those long bombs that I made".

The point of this spectacle is to suggest that this sort of rigorous inspection is similar to the one enjoyed by Audi's used cars. An Audi spokesman told the South China Morning Post marketing in China was the responsibility of its local joint venture partner.

After Grace made a 3-foot putt for par on 18, caddie Zack Rasego told Grace, "You're in the history books".

Spieth, the world number three and twice major champion, will tee off in the final group out with fellow American Matt Kuchar who trails him by two shots.

"My whole thing on the 18th was trying just not to make bogey", Grace said "I hit a great wedge in there, just caught a fly, a little bit of a jumper and made it tough for myself". "It's a great experience for him". He didn't even know that the low round record in a major was 63. Robert Streb had a 63 during the second round at last year's PGA Championship.

Jack Nicklaus also tweeted out his congratuations to Grace.
