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

Grace holed eight birdies in a bogey-free third round of The Open at Royal Birkdale to beat the previous best of 63, which has been recorded 31 times.

It is not the lowest score to par in a men’s major though, with seven players scoring nine under on par-72 courses.

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.
