Johnson shoots 64 but misses out on record-equalling round

Johnson shoots 64 but misses out on record-equalling round

With 31 scores of 63 in 442 modern majors, Grace now holds the lowest score in major championship history. It has to do with it was someone else's day, and I didn't play as well as I should have.

"It makes it even more special now to be in the history books". His career low round in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event was a 63 at the WGC-HSBC Champions event previous year.

Grace's record score came one year after Phil Mickelson nearly became the first to shoot 62 until his birdie putt on the 18th at Royal Troon in the first round swirled around the edge of the cup. Grace came to the 536-yard par-five 15th six-under par, and looking for an easy birdie. Last month, Justin Thomas tied the record for lowest score in relation to par with his 63 at the U.S. Open. But had no idea I had got the lowest ever round in a men's major! He moved to 8-under par for the round with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 17th, and then wrapped up the record with a handsome lag from behind the 18th green to 2 feet.

But due to their longer useful lifetimes, only 12 million metric tons, or 5 percent, of waste was created by construction. At current trends, it said the "global discard rate" of plastics would drop from 58 percent in 2014 to 6 percent in 2050.

Needing a par at the last to become the first player to card a sub-63 round in a major, Grace shot over the green with his second shot but two-putted from the fringe to card a history-making four.

Grace took some of the blame for his struggles, citing the tinkering nature of golfers. Dustin Johnson missed an 8-foot birdie putt on the 16th and failed to birdie the par-5 17th from the fairway and still shot 64.

On the Par-4 17th hole, he hit a lovely second shot on to the green that left him a tap-in birdie to go to 8-under.

Transactions were conducted using digital currency, and the marketplace took a cut of the proceeds when the deals were completed. Yakir Bechler, chief operating officer of Kela, says it's not clear what the future holds for the surviving black-market sites.

According to Grace, he wasn't even aware of his record-setting round as it was happening.

Spieth's playing partner, fellow American Matt Kuchar, had a more eventful start with two birdies and a bogey in his first four holes leaving him five-under. Robert Streb shot 63 during the second round at last year's PGA Championship.

"My whole thing on the 18th was trying just not to make bogey", he added. And to do it at a special place at one of the events that I actually like playing, at The Open.
