PGA pro breaks record for lowest round in British Open masterpiece

Isaac Mcdaniel | 24 July, 2017, 01:38

"And Zack came up and said, 'You're in the history books.' And I was like, 'What are you talking about?' So obviously now it makes the day even sweeter".

The 146th Open Championship's third round saw birdies and eagles aplenty, with a new major record set as the weather gave everyone a break (for the most part!). They include arguably the best round yet played, Johnny Miller's 63 to win at the barbaric Oakmont in the 1973 U.S. Open. He became the first player ever to shoot a 62 in a major, with many golf fans waking up in America to learn of the historic round.

"I was just in the zone, taking it hole by hole", Grace added. I was just trying to play the round without a bogey and make another birdie at the last.

Thirty-one players had shot 63s at a major championship before Saturday, including American Justin Thomas in the third round of this year's U.S. Open. That 54-year-old record has finally been broken. He moved to 8-under par for the round with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 17th, and then wrapped up the record with a lovely lag from behind the 18th green to 2 feet.

"I had no idea that a 62 was obviously the lowest ever", Grace said.

Grace started the final round seven shots behind leader Jordan Spieth and knew it would be very hard to win the tournament from that position. Sometimes it helps not knowing these things.

Tiger Woods once referred to his 2007 PGA Championship score as "62-and-a-half" after hitting a 16-foot putt on the final hole in the second round for the ball to hit the edge of the cup and spin out. "We come out here to win major championships and to win this one would be awfully special to me".

Two months later and Grace was once again in contention at a major, this time at the PGA Championship, where he finished third and secured a top-five finish for the second time at a major championship.

Despite all his success on the European Tour, Grace had to wait until a year ago to secure his first PGA Tour title at the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head. But he may not even be the only golfer to finish today's round with a 62 - when Grace walked off the course, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth had yet to tee off, and Dustin Johnson was 5-under through 12 holes.

Jack Nicklaus once said that it would happen some day when he looked ahead to the future of golf, he knew it was inevitable, according to ESPN.
