Branden Grace Made History at the Open Championship

Everton haven't won a trophy for a long time

Grace became the first man in major championship history to shoot 62 with magical eight-under-par round on Saturday.

A 63 had been recorded 10 times previously in the British Open, twice a year ago at Royal Troon, when Phil Mickelson did it in the opening round only for eventual victor Henrik Stenson to match him on the Sunday. "I didn't know what was going on on 18, I promise", he said.

By the time Grace had finished his round, he had soared up 43 spots on the leaderboard to four-under overall for second place, two shots adrift of American leader Jordan Spieth. "I played my best round of the week and I am grateful for the support", he said. So, I definitely lost a couple of shots there on the last couple of holes. If winds are down, and the rain helps soften the course instead of blowing in players' faces, then the course will yield birdies.

On the front nine, he went out with a 5-under 29 and came in on the back nine with a 3-under 33. "And I was like, 'What are you talking about?' Now it makes the day even sweeter", he said.

Successive gains from the eighth were followed by long-range birdies at the 14th and 16th, before Grace sealed his historic round with a two-putt gain at the 17th and close-range par at the last.

"To get to 12 under, I think that would be a decent number to sit in the clubhouse at".

South Africa were already 20-30 runs short, what made matters worse for them is the number of extras they conceded. Luus and Preez took South Africa to 218 for 6 in their 50 overs after they lost six wickets for 170.

It's also a useful introduction to the controls of the game, which have retained the motion controls from the original. Nintendo announced previously that the company's online app would launch on July 21, the release date for Splatoon 2 .

To make matters even more incredible, Grace did this after shooting 74 the round before during some brutally bad weather.

There have been plenty of 63s shot in major tournaments - a total of 31 recorded by 29 different golfers, most recently by Justin Thomas at last month's U.S. Open at Erin Hills.

There have been 442 majors in 157 years and 31 63s before Grace's wonderful 62.

Jason Dufner, who shot 63 en route to winning the 2011 PGA Championship, walked alongside Grace and shot 66.

"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". Then a two-foot par putt was the 62nd and final stroke of his magical 8-under round.
