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.

“I had no idea I was about to shoot the lowest round ever,” world number 35 Grace, 29, told BBC Radio 5 live.
