Branden Grace makes major history by firing 62 at British Open

It was eight birdies and zero bogeys that Grace used to shoot his 62 the first in major championship history

It didn't win him the claret jug.

By the turn in his third round, Spieth - Masters and US Open champion in 2015 - had picked up three birdies to move to nine under par, two clear of his playing partner and fellow American Matt Kuchar.

By the 10th hole he was under par for the tournament after making birdie at four, five, nine and ten.

"It was a special day, to be quite honest", Grace said after the round.

"When you get on a run like that, you stop thinking about golf".

Branden Grace carded the first 62 in major history at The Open on Saturday.

"Those guys are playing some great golf", he said. Now I'm feeling awesome, it is unbelievable actually.

"Glad to see I holed everything".

American Justin Thomas was the latest addition to that list at last month's U.S. Open. Minutes later, his mother waded into the muddy water to retrieve the club, slowly returned with it to dry land, only to throw it back into the water because it had been snapped in half by Li. But after I made the putt, that was the first thing he told me.

"And to do it at the Open Championship is pretty special".

Grace's round, the lowest in the history of the majors, saw him move from four over par overnight to four-under. It's absolutely done and dusted.

Grace said he had not had any idea he was on a record pace. "But today's round, for what it is, is as good a round".

But after finding a heavy lie in the rough on the first and failing to get up and down from left of the green, Spieth's lead was down to a single shot when Kuchar's superb approach to the second set up a tap-in birdie. He earned a place at Augusta National next year for finishing in the top four at Royal Birkdale.
