Branden Grace cards first 62 in men's major championship

Jordan Spieth has the lead through the second round of this year's British Open

As ESPN's Bob Harig reported, Grace became the first player in history to shoot 62 in a major championship. "And I just want to get out there again tomorrow and try to do something similar, just play some good golf". He said that on No. 18, he had no idea he was doing something no one else had ever done. So, I definitely lost a couple of shots there on the last couple of holes. "I knew I was obviously playing really well, and making the turn in five-under was pretty special", he said.

"I thought if I could make a couple more on the back nine, then it's going to be a great score".

Grace's response, he said, was, "What are you talking about?" "It's always nice shooting a low number, whether it's any day of the week, whether it's in a tournament or with friends". After I made it, my caddie told me the situation and that made it even better. Now it's time to see what he'll be able to do on Sunday and whether or not he can push for the Open Championship victory. "It's something I really enjoyed and something I'll remember forever, definitely".

Scotland's Richie Ramsay, playing with Kuchar, shot a level-par round of 70 to remain at two-under for the championship, while behind him Rory McIlroy has given himself a chance going into the weekend.

South Korea's Hyo-Joo Kim holds the record for the lowest round in any major with 61 at the women's Evian Championship in 2014. This is the 12th time he has been atop the leaderboard at the end of a round in a major, including the final rounds of the Masters and U.S. Open that he won in 2015.

Grace, whose playing partner Jason Dufner shot a 66, insisted after his round that he had no idea he had made history. "It's a great experience for him".

But he is now set up perfectly to be one of the contenders for the Claret Jug heading into the weekend, while Spieth and Koepka were among those left to face the prospect of more unpleasant weather later on.
