Jason Day shoots up British Open leaderboard with third-round 65

Jason Day shoots up British Open leaderboard with third-round 65

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

South Africa's Branden Grace shot a blistering round of 62, the lowest ever in a men's major championship, as the players made hay in benign conditions at the British Open on Saturday.

Phil Mickelson and eventual victor Henrik Stenson both shot 63 in last year's Open at Royal Troon, while Justin Thomas became the 29th player to achieve the feat in last month's US Open.

Needing a par at the last to become the first player to card a sub-63 round in a major, Grace shot over the green with his second shot but two-putted from the fringe to card a history-making four.

We'll let Michael Scott take it from here. On NBC, Jim "Bones" Mackay, in his first stint as a regular announcer, said to Dan Hicks, "Dan, I gotta tell ya, don't tell Johnny I said this, but there's a 62 out there today".

The American started the day at +3 but birdied four of the first eight holes to move to one under par overall.

The incredible thing is, when Grace has put the finishing touches on his 8-under-par masterpiece with a tap-in par on the 18th hole, he had no idea he had made history. "Definitely a couple of shots there (went missing) on the last couple of holes".

He knocked in his short par putt on the final hole at Royal Birkdale for a 62 when his caddie, Zack Raswego, walked up to him and said, "You're in the history books".

Grace's record round stands out in part because of the sheer peculiarity of the near-62 misses. He also has one 63 to his name in his career, albeit at the non-major WGC-HSBC Champions previous year.

"My main thing was not wanting to finish with a bogey". "I played really good, really solid from tee to green".

"It's kind of neat to be a part of history", Dufner said. Robert Streb had a 63 during the second round at last year's PGA Championship. He didn't even know that the low round record in a major was 63. But the 18th hole provided some drama. Miller's record was 33 years after Lloyd Mangrum was the first to shoot 64 in a major, at the 1940 Masters.
