He's done it!
South African Branden Grace today became the first man ever to shoot a 62 during a Major Championship.
Ever since Johnny Miller set the benchmark at the US Open in 1973, no one has managed to go lower than 63 - although many have tried. As many as 29 players have matched the score.

At last year's Open Championship Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson both went close, with the former lipping the hole during his first round which would have created history.
Now, a year on at Royal Birkdale, Grace has done just that.
Grace says he had no idea it was an historic round until his caddie told him on 18 #TheOpen

The 29-year-old glided around the course and managed eight birdies in benign conditions. Still yet to break his major duck, Grace launched himself into contention and finishes the day two shots adrift of leader Jordan Spieth.
There had been speculation that today might be the day after difficult conditions on Friday evening made way for sun-kissed greens on moving day, and Dustin Johnson looking on course for a 62 at the time of writing would suggest that idea has some weight to it.
