China's Li creates British Open sensation

Really, he did not know.

The torrential rain may have hit the players hard on Friday, but that just softened the course up and rendered it there for the taking for the third round.

Grace had five birdies on the front nine to go out in just 29 before three more coming home, at the short 14th and back-to-back at 16 and 17.

For the second day running the par-five 15th was the easiest hole as just three players in the 77-man field made bogey. Mickelson said afterwards: "I want to cry".

The first weekend score is in the books at the British Open - and it's a good one.

Grace's score totaled 8 under par on the par-70 course in Southport, England. The last 63 recorded at the British Open was in the final round at Royal Troon a year ago by the victor, Henrik Stenson.

Spieth, twice major champion, had taken time out from his warm-up session to watch Grace sink his final putt but the world number three was not distracted.

China's Li Haotong soared up the British Open leaderboard with a superb last-round 63 on Sunday and at one stage looked to have a chance of becoming the second Asian man to win a major title.

The list also includes numerous usual suspects - Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo, Gary Player, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, and Henrik Stenson.

"But obviously I knocked in the two-footer or three-footer".

Dufner was among those who had a chance to first break the 63 barrier.

They found such a lamb that, by the end of the 62, it was wise to wonder how long it might stand alone.

South African Branden Grace fired in eight birdies in his record round of 62 during the third round of The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale. "To get to 12-under, I think that would be a decent number to sit in the clubhouse at". A 29 going out matched Grace's age. Li rolled in birdies at Nos.

A third Australian Marc Leishman was another big mover, jumping 32 spots after his round of 66.

"Unfortunately it's the first cut I've missed this year and I missed it with flair". Remarkably this could have gone even lower, as he took 28 swipes with the putter, missing on a quite few from mid-range, ones you might expect to drop during a career round.

"I had no idea whatsoever that was the lowest", Grace said.

Grace's response, he said, was, "What are you talking about?"

"Everything I've gone through, the good, the bad", he said.
