Grace shoots lowest round in Major history with 62 at The Open

Branden Grace Shoots First Ever 62 In A Major

As a result, Grace went from ho-hum to history. But he had two putts to finish it off, and after dropping the first one close to the hole, he closed it out and made history.

Grace's record round stands out in part because of the sheer peculiarity of the near-62 misses.

Describing what the achievement meant to him, Grace said: "It's special".

Branden Grace posted the lowest 18-hole score in 157 years and 422 major championships, and he didn't even know it.

"I played really solid from tee to green".

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

One guy that definitely saw this coming was Justin Thomas, who has a history with Miller raining on parades after shooting his own 63 at the U.S. Open last month. 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 14, 16 and 17.




"My whole thing on the 18th was trying just not to make bogey, " he said. "I wanted to finish strong".

Grace made himself do it the hard way as his approach shot rolled off the back of the green - only for him to lag the ball up pin high and delight the Merseyside crowd by knocking in his 62nd and final stroke of the day.

"It was a special round from the start and when you get it going you just want to make even more birdies".

Quotes from the likes of Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson and Dustin Johnson following their third rounds at the Open Championship.

"I think I'm in a position where it can be very advantageous, just everything I've gone through, the good, the bad and everything in the middle".

Going low is not new to Grace, who shot 64 in the third round of the 2015 PGA Championship. Much in the way Jim Furyk's 58 at the par 70 TPC River Highlands is not quite as good as David Duval's 59 at the par 72 PGA West Palmer Private Course, Grace's 62 is not as good as Miller's 63. The bottom line is, Grace made history in the pressurized crucible in a major.

"I honestly didn't", Grace said sheepishly. "If you keep it in play, it's nearly hard to make a bogey out there". I've shot a 12-under on a links course and I've shot 60.
