Branden Grace cards first 62 in men's major championship

Spieth, a few days from his 24th birthday, is already a Masters and U.S. Open champion. I knew I was obviously playing really well, and making the turn in five-under was pretty special.

After Branden Grace's record-breaking 62 during Saturday's third round, a 63 is now nearly greeted with a nonchalant shrug.

South Africa's Branden Grace has become the first man to score 62 in a major.

The South African took advantage of benign conditions on the links of Royal Birkdale that were a world away from the rain and wind that rendered shot-making nearly impossible on Friday. "But I made a nice start with the birdie at three and I didn't have too much stress in the round".

China's Li Haotong carded a brilliant 63 to set a testing clubhouse target as Jordan Spieth surrendered his lead in the final round of the Open Championship.

Cash flow in GE's industrial segment was a positive $1.5 billion after a shocking first-quarter shortfall of $1.6 billion. Friday reported dip in second-quarter profit and revenue on lackluster performance from its energy connections unit.

"I knew I was playing well and I was just in the zone". But nobody had ever managed a 62. Jodie Mudd shot 63 here at Birkdale in 1991. He never said anything, so good on him, I suppose. This is an experience that you don't get every week.

It may have been one of sports' better cases of very heavy lifting without knowing, for the list Grace shoved aside is heavy with golfing distinction.

But the ideal weather held into the afternoon on the north-west English coast, allowing Spieth and the other leading players the chance to build on their strong starting positions. And after a lull to start the back nine, he resumed his march with a 36-foot birdie putt on the par-3 14th, a birdie putt from just inside 30 feet on No. 16, and then he moved to 8 under on his round by hitting 3-iron onto the green at the par-5 17th for a two-putt birdie.

Grace shared fifth place with world number two Hideki Matsuyama, with defending champion Henrik Stenson, world number one Dustin Johnson, Rafael Cabrera Bello and Chan Kim on three under.

But it really is just an outside chance, for him and the rest of the chasing pack, after Spieth built on his two-stroke overnight lead to shoot a bogey-free 65 and climb to 11 under par for the championship.

A birdie on No. 1 got them going.

"You still have to do it out there", said Grace, who said par felt more like 67 than 70 because of the light wind and turf that was on the soft side.

"I think he did".

His opponents will not put it past him. Fifteen players shot 66 or better.
