Branden Grace breaks major single round golf record with 62

Justin Thomas shot a 63 in the third round of that Open, and that was on a par-72 golf course.

"I honestly didn't. You know, I was just so in the zone of playing, hole after hole". It's the same swagger if it's double bogey as it is from an eagle. Following a first shot into the fairway, Grace lined up for his approach in silence.

"Those guys are playing some great golf", he said.

There have been 10 scores of 63 at The Open, with only Jodie Mudd shooting the score at Royal Birkdale. But after I made the putt, that was the first thing he told me. "I've had in this year a couple of five unders but I haven't had a number like this".

Grace put it to within 2 feet for his final putt.

Every golfer in this field plays with a objective, but Spieth wears it like a suntan. He ended up taking an unplayable lie and hit his next shot from the driving range, near a Titleist truck.

"It's like when somebody plays on a 70 shoots a 59".

Spieth was at 6-under 134.

The one constant in the British Open isn't what the score will be, anyway.

Grace posted back-to-back birdies from the eighth to reach the turn in 29 and moved further up the leaderboard by holing a 35-footer at the par-three 14th. The idea in that tournament is to test players so much that they will run around high-fiving fans if they ever get under par.

Moody's Corporation, General Electric Company Q2 2017 Earnings
The company reported a profit of $1.19 billion, or 15 cents a share, down from $2.76 billion, or 36 cents a share, a year earlier. GE reported $29.6 billion in revenue for the second quarter, down 12 percent from the same period previous year .

A 63 had been recorded 10 times previously in the British Open, twice previous year at Royal Troon, when Phil Mickelson did it in the opening round only for eventual victor Henrik Stenson to match him on the Sunday. Kuchar is the essence of steady in a game that ebbs and flows, but he's never had a better chance to win a major than this one.

Henrik Stenson was another to relish a favourable links, the defending Open champion firing himself into contention with a 65.

Spieth, meanwhile, was stumbling early.

The stunning round from Grace jumped him from a tie for 45th to a tie for fourth on moving day. He missed a 3-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole and had to settle for a 63.

The tall, perma-grinned Kuchar - greeted everywhere with the trademark "Kuuuuch" from the crowd - closed the gap to one with a birdie on the short 14th and added another on the par-five 15th as rain began to fall. The nearest challengers to Spieth are another five shots back. But he stumbled out of the blocks after beginning the day with a three-shot lead.

"But it's just great to be able to have two rounds on the weekend". He played Saturday without making a bogey at Royal Birkdale. "And that's what is really cool about Dustin Johnson".

Rory McIlroy was even through three holes, but faced a monumental challenge to get within shouting distance of Spieth. And a back nine with two very reachable par 5s at the end.

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

When Branden Grace threatened, and then broke, the majors scoring record with a 62 at the British Open on Saturday, there were as many tweets about Johnny as there were about Grace. Grace will be in position to make some noise on Sunday if he can put together another impressive round. The wind was expected to increase, though nothing like the second round.

A record crowd has taken it all in. Tiger Woods had only won two by his 24th birthday.
