The Open, Brendan Grace Shoots A Historic 62 In Round 3

23 July, 2017, 00:59 | Author: Yolanda Murray
  • Branden Grace carded the lowest round in major championship history on Saturday

With four top 5s already on his major championship resume, he will now try to clear his emotional palate and make a Sunday run at his first major title. Needing to birdie two of his last three holes to tie Grace's freshly-set record, he settled for par on all three, instead shooting a 64. I was so in the zone and playing the round so well.

His underwhelmed demeanour as the crowd gave him a standing ovation was explained later when he revealed he had no idea he was putting to re-write the record books.

Still coming to terms with his achievement, Grace said Rasego had probably helped him by keeping the historical context to himself.

Grace birdied the first and picked up further shots at the fourth and fifth before birdieing eight and nine. Phil Mickelson's lip-out at Troon a year ago was the most recent of inexplicable moments where odd bounces and cruel lip-outs prevented a barrier-busting round. Of the 421 major-championship rounds that were played before Saturday, there had never been a 62.

Jordan Spieth will take a three-shot lead into the final round of the British Open.

"Let's get this out of the way - I didn't know what was going on on 18".

Saturday was a historic day at Birkdale, and Grace will be remembered as the first to ever shoot a 62 in a major.

"I honestly didn't", he said.

Jordan Spieth Takes Early Lead at British Open
Spieth ordinarily isn't a gum-chewer, but on the range his instructor, Cameron McCormick offered him a piece of mint gum. He seems to have a singular inner motor that responds to utmost challenge and finds tedium in depressurized situations.

Grace's response, he said, was, "What are you talking about?"

"My whole thing on the 18th was trying just not to make bogey". I knew I was obviously playing really well, and making the turn in 5-under was pretty special. His best finish in 21 previous majors was third place in the 2015 PGA Championship.

Going out 10 minutes before them, England's Ian Poulter, runner-up here to Padraig Harrington in 2008, and current US Open champion Brooks Koepka were both three-under overnight. Miller dinged the accomplishment in what was more than a backhanded compliment, pejoratively referring to the easier U.S. Open setup in Wisconsin as a "Greater Milwaukee Open".
