The South African secured his place in the golfing record books with a sublime round of eight-under par.

South African Branden Grace became the first player in golfing history to shoot a round of 62 at a men's major championship after a near flawless round at the Open at Royal Birkdale.

Phil Mickelson and eventual winner Henrik Stenson both shot 63 in last year's Open at Royal Troon, while Justin Thomas became the 29th player to achieve the feat in last month's US Open.

But Grace, who only made the halfway cut with a shot to spare on four over par, went one better with eight birdies and no bogeys on the 7,027-yard par-70 layout to jump from a tie for 45th into a tie for second.
